QPR boss recognised for leading team to unbeaten October

Queens Park Rangers boss Ian Holloway has been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award for October.

The 54-year-old led QPR to an unbeaten month, including wins at Loftus Road against high-flying Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sheffield United.

After starting October with frustrating 1-1 draws at Sunderland and Bolton Wanderers, Holloways trusted his methods and his players.

Following the draws, the home wins against Wolves and the Blades in the space of four days ensured QPR pick up eight points from four unbeaten games in October.
