Southend 3-1 Pompey: They said what?

Have your say

Andy Awford and Danny Hollands have been shortlisted for League Two awards in recognition of their April performances.

Awford has collected 13 points from a possible 15 over the month to lead Pompey to Football League safety.

Now he has been nominated as manager of the month, vying with Phil Brown (Southend), Paul Cook (Chesterfield) and Chris Wilder (Northampton).

Hollands is up for the player’s award during a period which has seen him net twice and establish himself as a key component of the side during his loan spell.

Joining the 28-year-old in the running are Pablo Mills (Bury), Josh Morris (Fleetwood) and Nick Pope (York).

The results, as judged by ex-Wimbledon boss Dave Bassett and former West Bromwich Albion striker Don Goodman, will be announced tomorrow.
