Rovers boss Tony Mowbray was pleased to pick up the Manager of the Month Award for November, but was keen to pay tribute to his players who have "worked extremely hard."

Tony beat off competition from Scunthorpe United's Graham Alexander, who also had a 100% record in November, Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett and Walsall's Jon Whitney for the monthly prize.

Mowbray has finally got his hands on a monthly prize having having lost out to Shrewsbury boss Paul Hurst in September.

The boss picked up the Manager of the Month for the tenth time in his career, but was quick to praise his players for earning him the top prize.

"It's reward for the hard work everyone has put in, but I'm not too big on personal awards," Tony said.

"We've had a decent month and the team have worked extremely hard. It's a reflection on everybody's excellent work.

"I'm just a cog in the machine that wants to get the club back to the league above. We scored a lot of goals, played attacking football and that's been reflected in the scorelines, but nobody's getting carried away.

"We know we're not even at Christmas yet and nothing's won in November. It's important to keep up that intensity and continue to play with a desire and a passion.

"The players have bought into the demanding training sessions and deserve the credit."
