PARS boss Allan Johnston and fan favourite Joe Cardle have scooped the Ladbrokes Championship Manager and Player of the Month for August.

The pair were presented with their awards at East End Park today.

Johnston has guided his men to the top of the Championship league table amassing 10 points from a possible 12. 

The Pars started the season with a 1-1 draw away to Livingston, which was followed up with three consecutive wins over Inverness Caledonian Thistle, rivals Falkirk and most recently Dumbarton.

A key player for Johnston has been winger Cardle, who was in fine form throughout the month of August.

The 30-year-old netted five times in four games and chipped in with several assists on his way to the monthly award.

He is currently the league's top goalscorer.
