Rs boss honoured for overseeing unbeaten month in league

Queens Park Rangers boss Steve McClaren has been named Sky Bet manager of the month for October.

The former England boss has been recognised for his efforts in leading the Rs to an unbeaten month in the league.

During October, QPR recorded wins over Reading, Ipswich Town, Sheffield Wednesday and Aston Villa, while their other game saw them draw at home to Frank Lampard’s Derby County as the Loftus Road took 13 points from a possible 15.

The month also saw McClaren’s men impress defensively as they conceded just once in those five matches.

That run of form lifted the Rs from the lower reaches of the table to within touching distance of the top six.

McClaren said: “I have got to say the response of the players has been good, but the main factor we’ve had such a good October was the staff I have got around me.

“It is all about people, it is all about players, it is all about staff and the staff have been absolutely magnificent.

“We could have crumbled after four games, but they stuck together, we all did.

“Matty Gardiner, John Eustace, Gavin Ward, the Sports Science team behind, the medics who are keeping the players fit and everybody at this training ground, everybody at the stadium, even the supporters are sticking together.”
