Hodgson handed boss award

Fulham's Roy Hodgson has been named as the Premier League Manager of the Month for October.

Hodgson's side were unbeaten in the league last month, winning at home to both Hull City and Liverpool, while drawing 2-2 at West Ham and Manchester City.

The 62-year-old told his club's official website:"It feels very good and it's a great honour, but of course it's an honour for the club, the team, and the staff, but it's nice to be the person receiving the award.

"It's always very nice to be appreciated by people within the game and the people making the judgements.

"We've got a good group of players here and it's important to keep them together.

"I believe that if we can keep people fit the squad we have at the moment is capable of going through the season and doing what we would like to do with the season."
