AFC Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has been named the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month for October.Sixteen goals in five Sky Bet Championship and Capital One Cup outings during October have propelled Howe’s Cherries to the top of the league.
The stand-out result in the month was an 8-0 thrashing of Birmingham City at St. Andrew’s.
Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “Eddie Howe has built an extremely talented young side on the south coast and the Cherries are in an impressive run of form.
"Dan Gosling, Junior Stanislas and Adam Smith are seizing the fresh chances that Howe has given them and summer signing Callum Wilson is repaying the faith shown in him with plenty of goals.”
Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery said: “His return from Burnley in 2012 has been hugely beneficial for the Cherries and they are now looking down the barrel of promotion to the Premier League.”
The judging panel for the Sky Bet Manager of the Month comprises Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson; League Managers’ Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.
