Bolton narrowly missed out on a play-off place but Freedman's side had an impressive April that included four wins, a draw and a single defeat.

Freedman narrowly pipped Charlton's Chris Powell and Brighton boss Gus Poyet to the monthly gong.

Speaking about Freedman's win, award panel member Alan Curbishley said: "It was a great month for Dougie Freedman which resulted in an end-of-season surge for his side, who only just missed out on a play-off place.

"I am sure Bolton will be in contention again next season in what will be his first full season in charge."

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe was named the npower League One Manager of the Month after he steered the Cherries into the Championship.

Howe's side missed out on the title but had a month to remember, winning four and drawing just the once to ensure a near-perfect finish to the season.

Nigel Worthington took the League Two award after York City remained unbeaten in April with four wins and a draw from their last five fixtures to ensure they remained in the division next season.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
