Dagenham & Redbridge boss John Still has been named as the League Two manager of the month for August, while Ismail Yakubu took the player gong.

Still receives his award after guiding the Daggers to four league wins and one defeat during the opening month of the campaign.

His side began with a 2-1 success at Crewe, before registering thumping 5-3 and 5-0 home victories over Torquay and Shrewsbury respectively.

But the Daggers then slumped to a 3-0 reverse at big-spending Notts County before rounding off the month with a comfortable 3-0 home success over Lincoln to go to the top of the table, while they now sit third.

Meanwhile, Yakubu won the Player of the Month award for his solid displays in the heart of the Barnet defence.

His contribution helped the Bees concede just three goals in five league games to keep up with the pace at the top of the division.

Also short-listed for the August players' award were Shwan Jalal of Bournemouth, Danny Green of Dagenham and Rotherham's Adam Le Fondre.
