Ronnie Moore and Scott Harrison have narrowly lost out on Sky Bet League Two awards for March.
Wins at Morecambe and Oxford United were backed up by home triumphs over Mansfield Town and Cambridge United as Pools defied the odds to jump clear of the bottom two.
However, Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth had an even better record for the month as he oversaw four wins and two draws to keep The Chairboys on course for automatic promotion and scoop the managerial gong in the process.
Defender Harrison was nominated for the League Two Player of the Month accolade after playing his part in Pools keeping three clean sheets while he also scored his first-ever goal in March.
Unfortunately, Shrewsbury Town star Bobby Grant came out as winner after firing an impressive five goals during March as Mickey Mellon’s men continued their push for a quick return to League One.
Never mind fellas, it’s a curse anyway isn’t it?!
