Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope has been named Coca-Cola League 1 Manager of the Month for October.
After some disappointing results in September Trollope's men enjoyed a fantastic month in October with four wins and a draw from their five league fixtures. The Pirates began the month with victories against Colchester United and Leyton Orient before sealing an important point away at Huddersfield Town. Their impressive run continued with back-to-back home wins against Oldham Athletic and Southend United, ensuring Rovers head into November with the Play Off places firmly in their sights.
Chris Kamara, chairman of the Coca-Cola Manager of the Month Awards panel, said: "Paul Trollope has taken to management brilliantly since being appointed Bristol Rovers boss just over three years ago. His side endured a difficult opening to the season but got back to winning ways in October, remaining unbeaten and picking up thirteen points from a possible fifteen during the month."
