Weaver has masterminded Town’s ascend back into the play-off mix over the last month, with Town winning all three of their matches.

It is the first time Weaver has picked up the award in his four-year stint in charge at the CNG Stadium.

Town lie one point, and one place outside the top five remain after an unbeaten start to 2014.

Weaver’s men last tasted defeat on December 28, when they lost 1-0 at Vauxhall Motors.

The Sulphurites head to fourth-placed Brackley Town on Saturday knowing that a victory would place them back in the top five for the first time since September.

Chris Hall’s brace helped Town beat Boston United 4-0 on Saturday, as the visitng Pilgrims ended the match with just seven men on the field.

Town have also beaten promotion chasing Hednesford Town 3-1 and mid-table full-timers Histon 1-0 this month.
