Stevenage boss Dino Maamria and striker Kurtis Guthrie have been nominated for League Two Manager of the Month and Player of the Month after going unbeaten in April.
Boro picked up 13 points from a possible 15 in April, taking their hunt for a play-off place down to the last day of the season against Cheltenham on Saturday.
The month started with a 2-0 away win at Grimsby, followed by a 3-0 victory over Carlisle and a 4-1 thumping of Port Vale on the road.
Exeter were the only side to take points off Stevenage in April, drawing 1-1 at the Lamex before Maamria’s side snatched a last-gasp winner against Mansfield, winning 2-1 last Saturday.
Guthrie has been the driving force behind Boro’s unbeaten month, scoring seven goals and laying on three assists in just seven games.
