Burnley's Sean Dyche beats the man who replaced him at Watford - Gianfranco Zola - to monthly award
1:20pm Saturday 5th October 2013 in Sport
Gianfranco Zola missed out on the Championship Manager of the Month award for September to the man he replaced at Watford, Sean Dyche.
The Hornets and Burnley both took ten points from a possible 12 last month and scored nine goals in those four matches, with the Clarets conceding one goal less than the Golden Boys.
Burnley, who are currently top of the Championship, also beat Nottingham Forest in the League Cup on the same night Watford went out to Norwich City after extra-time.
Dyche told Sky Sports News: "The players deserve all the credit. Talk of promotion is miles away. We've had a good start to the season. We've performed well. The challenge is to do that on a weekly basis, see how many wins you get and take it from there.
"We're happy with the situation; the team are performing and if you're doing well teams want to knock you off your perch. It's a tough division, we know that."
