Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month

Bournemouth manager 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.

Howe will be particularly pleased with the way his team beat Birmingham 8-0 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.”
