Chris Hughton has won the Barclays Manager of the Month award for the first time.
The 59-year-old has managed 121 matches in the Premier League, also with Newcastle United and Norwich City.
He becomes Brighton's first recipient of a Premier League award in their debut season in the competition.
"It's a wonderful achievement for the club and certainly for a group of players that have improved as the season has gone on and knowing that we've still got a lot of work to do," Hughton said.
"I have wonderful medical staff and coaching staff.
"We're thankful to a lot of people but, of course, it's the players, the players have enjoyed being in this division so far and are desperate to make sure that we stay there."
