Dyche Named Manager of The Month

11 March 2016

Sean Dyche has been named as the Sky Bet Championship manager of the month for February.

The Clarets boss landed the award at the third time of asking this season, after previously being nominated in October and January.

And the award was richly deserved following a month that saw unbeaten Burnley win four and draw two of their six games, including a pivotal win over Hull City, to go top of the Championship for the first time this season.

Dyche said: “It is an award that I am obviously happy to receive. I’ve been fortunate enough to win it a few times before and I accept it gladly on behalf of the staff, the players and the club.

“I believe in that one-club mentality and this is a marker that it works.

“We have been on a good roll for a while now, with good performances and results and we’ve shown many different signs and ways of winning games lately.

“We have just done it again against Blackburn and Fulham at the start of a new month, but awards like this are always down to staff and players.

“It’s not just about the manager and I have a terrific staff here and a terrific group of players, not only as footballers, but also as people.”

George Burley, who chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel, added: “Sean is again showing what a fantastic manager he is by guiding Burnley up the table and they are now looking good for a quick return to the Premier League.

“Unbeaten in six games during the month, including a great win against league leaders Hull City to take them to the top of the Sky Bet Championship.”

Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman and fellow award panellist, said: “Sean’s determination to get back to the Premier League has shone through this month with his Burnley side unbeaten in six games.

“This is the time of the season where promotion can either be won or lost and if they do get promoted, they are sure to reflect on February as the month where their promotion charge took off.”
