Sean Dyche has today been crowned Championship Manager of the Month for September.
The Clarets boss beat off stiff competition from Steve Lomas (Millwall), Nigel Pearson (Leicester City) and Gianfranco Zola (Watford) to land the award at the second time of asking, after also being nominated in August following Burnley’s impressive start to the season.
Three wins and a draw from four league games in September, plus an impressive Capital One Cup victory over Nottingham Forest, was enough to convince the judges to hand the award to Dyche.
The Clarets boss said: “I am delighted because an award like this recognises the work done by the staff, the players, the fans and the town.
“This is recognition to all concerned and I value that. Obviously it is a personal accolade, but I know it is way beyond that because there is so much hard work that goes on here.
“I think it is nice for all concerned and I accept it gladly, but I do so on behalf of everyone connected with Burney Football Club and the staff and the players for sure.”
Elsewhere, Clarets skipper Jason Shackell narrowly missed out on the Championship Player of the Month award.
Why not come and see the league leaders host Reading at Turf Moor on Saturday, October 5 (3pm KO).
