Terriers Boss Gets Award

Last updated : 02 February 2004 By Andy Beill
His side had a 100% winning run in January, beating Doncaster, Cambridge, Boston and York. Their record was matched by Hull City, who closed a four point gap to go back to the top of the table with wins over Cambridge, Darlington, Oxford and Cheltenham. The two sides even had the same for and against totals, each scoring 9 and conceding 2.

But it's Jackson who gets the award and not Peter Taylor, who is still yet to win it since becoming Tigers manager. Iain Dowie (Crystal Palace) and Danny Wilson (Bristol City) were the top bosses in Divisions One and Two respectively.

However, the news is tainted for Town fans after hearing that their star striker Jon Stead is leaving the McAlpine Stadium. He's been sold to Premiership side Blackburn Rovers for £1.25million, signing a 4½-year contract. The 20-year-old - who came through the Huddersfield youth ranks - has struck 16 times in Division Three this season, more than any other player.
