Steven Pressley: Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month for October

Pressley guided his team through another stellar month, collecting 13 points from a possible 15.

Former Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel and said: "Coventry City's fine form under Steven Pressley continues.

"Their unbeaten month included Pressley's men inflicting a first defeat on leaders Leyton Orient, and a draw against Wolves.

"Despite the points deduction they are now pushing hard for a play-off place."

Sky Sports' Football League pundit Don Goodman said: "Steven's Coventry excelled in October - with four wins and a draw.

"The 3-1 win over Leyton Orient - ending the O's 14-game unbeaten run - marked out his Coventry side's potential."

Online bookmaker Sky Bet make the Sky Blues a 25/1 shot to win all four league matches in November.

Bamford picks up the player award after scoring four goals in the month, including a brace at Gillingham. Another goal at Leyton Orient followed before netting the late winner in a 3-2 win against Rotherham United.

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson said: "Patrick Bamford has worked tremendously hard this season, both on and off the pitch, to improve as an all-round player.

"I think we are seeing the fruits of his labour. Patrick is a talented footballer and a joy to work with.

"He is a natural goalscorer who complements the style of football we play.

"Last month Patrick scored some excellent goals, and I think he fully deserves this award."

Goodman said: "Patrick is only 20 and has huge potential as a striker.

"That's why he has become Karl Robinson's first choice centre-forward.

"Four goals in October, capped off by a fantastic winner against Rotherham, made him the standout candidate for the Sky Bet Player of the Month award."

The League sponsors are offering 4/1 for Bamford to net 20 league goals this season.
