Neil Warnock lands record 11th Championship Manager of the Month award after guiding Middlesbrough to unbeaten October

NEIL WARNOCK has made EFL history by winning a record 11th Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award.

The 71-year-old veteran was already one ahead of Chris Hughton in the all-time standings before scooping another for his collection after a stunning month at Middlesbrough.

Boro enjoyed a six-match unbeaten run in October.

Warnock’s side collected 14 points during that period to move into play-off contention.

The former Sheffield United and Cardiff boss said: “It’s been such a difficult time up in the North East, so it’s nice to be a bit of good news and put a few smiles on faces.

“It’s a talking point for the fans, and the sooner we can get them back into stadiums the better.”

He added: “We’ve played some cracking football, and there’s great camaraderie in the squad.

“I can’t stress it enough how much I’ve enjoyed working with them.

“Everybody in the dressing room wants to listen, and the way some of them have improved, that’s what I enjoy most in management.”

Warnock took charge at The Riverside in June and guided the club to safety by winning four of his eight games at the helm last term.

Boro are next in action on Saturday 21 November when they host Norwich.

Meanwhile, Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson scooped the League One accolade.

And Newport County’s Michael Flynn took the prize in the League Two.
