Warnock and Heckingbottom take home monthly manager awards

Rotherham United's Neil Warnock, and Barnsley's interim head coach, Paul Heckingbottom have won the Football League's manager of the month awards for their respective leagues.

Warnock has overseen an astounding turnaround in form at the Millers since taking over, steering them away from the relegation zone.

Meanwhile in League One, Heckingbottom has overseen his own great run since taking over temporary charge at Barnsley, culminating in their Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Oxford at Wembley.

Warnock relishing South Yorkshire derby

Rotherham United manager Neil Warnock is looking forward to a good old-fashioned derby match when the Millers travel to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

The experienced Warnock was hired last month to keep Rotherham in the Championship, and last weekend's home win against Brentford has taken them to within three points of safety.

In contrast, even though they haven't won any of their last three league matches, Wednesday are 6th in the table, and are still looking a good bet for the play-offs.

As a former Sheffield United manager and avowed Blades supporter, Warnock is expecting some stick from the Wednesday fans, but he wouldn't want it any other way.
