Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month: October nominations

11 November 2021

The October nominations for the Sky Bet ChampionshipManager of the Month Award are:

Neil Critchley (Blackpool)

A second successive nomination for the Blackpool manager who learned a thing or two about momentum in last season’s promotion campaign. Four wins in five matches for his side included a stunning 3-2 win from 2-0 down at Reading.

Russell Martin (Swansea City)

Patience can be a rare commodity in football, but Martin has shown it to his players in abundance, so completely does he believe in a passing game. That approach began to pay off in October with 10 points gained from five matches.

Scott Parker (Bournemouth)

Parker led his team to a perfect 15 points from five games, with 10 goals scored and four clean sheets as they dominated the Championship. Even the one goal they conceded led to a confidence-building comeback win over Sheffield United.

Marco Silva (Fulham)

Questions were asked of Silva when Fulham succumbed to a 4-1 defeat at Coventry. They were answered in full and with swaggering style. Four straight wins with 13 goals scored featured a 3-0 win over promotion rivals West Brom.
