Fulham manager Roy Hodgson has landed the Barclays Manager of the Month award for October.
Hodgson guided the Cottagers through an unbeaten month despite a tricky Barclays Premier League fixture list.
Hodgson's charges kicked off the month with a 2-2 draw at West Ham United and were only denied three points by Hammers' striker Junior Stanislas' last-gasp equaliser.
This was followed by a comfortable 2-0 win at home to Hull City before the team came back from two goals down to secure an excellent draw away at Manchester City.
Fulham completed the month with a fine 3-1 victory over Liverpool, a win that saw the club move into mid-table and away from the relegation danzer zone.
This is the third time that Roy Hodgson has won the Barclays Manager of the Month award and comes almost 12 years since he last scooped the prize in December 1997, while manager of Blackburn Rovers. He also won the award in August 1997.
The decision was made by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football's governing bodies, the media and fans.
