Tony Mowbray, the manager of Middlesbrough Football Club, has been named Championship Manager of the Month after his club became the division's form team following a string of wins in October.
The Boro manager beat off competition from Millwall's Kenny Jacket and Nottingham Forest's Sean O'Driscoll after his team recorded five wins and a draw during the month, scoring ten goals and conceding just four.
Since returning to the club in November 2010, Mowbray has won the award three times - an accolade that he says is not just an individual achievement, but down to the work of his players and staff.

"It's a recognition of the whole club, not just me. I help pick the team with my coaching staff but it's a huge team effort every single week to try to win football matches. Everybody behind the scenes is working to make it a happy camp."
