Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson's positive start to life back at London Road has been rewarded with the February Manager of the Month award.
Ferguson returned for a second stint as Peterborough manager back in January after replacing Gary Johnson and he has kept the club in contention for promotion.
During seven games in February, Ferguson recorded four wins for Posh and started the month with high-scoring home games against Sheffield Wednesday and Southampton.
The month was rounded off with a 5-0 hammering of Oldham Athletic away from home to leave Peterborough in fourth place, five points adrift of the top two.
February proved to be a cause for double celebration for the League One club as Craig Mackail-Smith picked up the Player of the Month accolade.
Mackail-Smith took the player award after scoring seven goals in seven appearances for Posh.
The striker started the month with a brace in the 5-3 win over Wednesday and rounded it off with another double in last weekend's mauling of Oldham.
