Guy Whittingham has been nominated for the League One manager of the month award for March.
The Pompey caretaker boss has been short-listed for the award along with Walsall’s Dean Smith and Leyton Orient’s Russell Slade.
The Blues ended their 23-game winless at Crewe and went on to pick up three wins and two draws last month in an excellent turnaround.
The only defeat came at Leyton Orient in a game Slade admitted Pompey deserved to win.
Pompey are currently in the midst of a run of just a single defeat in nine games, despite the club’s continuing problems off the pitch.
The winner of the award will be announced on Friday.
