Birmingham City boss Chris Hughton has been named Championship Manager of the Month for January.

Blues enjoyed an unbeaten month, winning four and drawing the other game to boost their bid for promotion.

Hughton's men have carried on that fine form in February and the midweek win over Portsmouth lifted Birmingham into third spot in the Championship.

It was an awards double for the club with central defender Curtis Davies scooping the Player of the Month prize following a number of impressive displays.

Davies helped Birmingham go unbeaten and also chipped in with three goals from defence.

Good period

Hughton was full of praise for Davies for the impact he has had on the side in recent weeks.

"Curtis is going through a really good period and in he's in form," he said.

"He's been injury free, which has had a fair amount to do with it, and that's given him a really good momentum in his game.

"He wants to play every game and we're benefiting from that."
