Plymouth Argyle manager John Sheridan has been named League Two's Manager of the Month.

The award comes after he led the Pilgrims to four wins and a draw from six fixtures in March.

Sheridan becomes the first Argyle manager to win the accolade since Paul Sturrock in December 2003.

It's a double celebration at Home Park as midfielder Jason Banton has been named League Two's Player of the Month.

The Crystal Palace loanee scored three vital goals, including the winner against Devon rivals Exeter City, to help Argyle move away from the relegation zone.

In-form Argyle travel to third-placed Burton Albion tomorrow. Sheridan's men are currently 18th in the table, but still only three points away from the drop zone.

Captain Paul Wotton is a doubt after being substituted with a groin injury in last week's win over Cheltenham.

Long-term ankle injury victims Warren Feeney and Jamie Lowry also miss the trip to Staffordshire, plus Swindon Town loan signing Lee Cox, who damaged his shoulder in the derby win over the Grecians.
