John Mousinhos kommentarer

«It’s always nice to receive this accolade – but more important than any individual awards is that we can have a positive end to the season on the pitch. This is recognition of where our football club is at the moment and that is down to a lot of hard work from all the staff and players, so it’s thoroughly deserved.

I was really pleased with our form throughout February and special mention has to go to our amazing supporters – including those who backed us in such large numbers on the road at Carlisle and Charlton.

Juryens kommentarer

Juryformann Danny Wilson: «To maintain top position in any league is very testing. John’s Pompey side continue to show the standards and consistency required do so. Unbeaten in February, collecting points and goals in the process, puts them in a strong position at the summit of League One.”

Dan Goodman: «One of the EFL managerial success stories of the season, Mousinho oversaw a near-perfect month at the Pompey helm to extend their lead at the top of the Sky Bet League One table. March has already started in much the same way with an impressive victory over a strong Oxford and Pompey fans are already beginning to dream of an emotional return to the Championship.”
