Warburton guided the Bees to a perfect November with of five wins, featuring 14 goals and a Play-Off position, as his side's thrilling attacking play swept everyone aside.

Chris Hughton, who chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel, said: “For a team that won promotion last season Brentford have made a fantastic start to the new campaign.

“To record five straight wins in the Sky Bet Championship is a wonderful achievement and Mark Warburton is thoroughly deserving of this award.”

Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “Brentford continue to impress in their first season in the second tier for 21 years.

“Securing their fifth straight Championship win with a 4-0 demolition job of Wolves, Warburton will be dreaming of a repeat of last season’s promotion heroics.”

Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery said: “For me there was no other contender for this month’s award. Brentford have been breathtaking under Warburton during November.
