Neil Warnock On Championship MotM Win - August

Neil Warnock On Championship MotM Win - August

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has been named the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month for August.

Neil Warnock promised the Cardiff fans a tilt at promotion back in the spring and delivered handsomely on that pledge in August, leading his side through a perfect month with five wins from five games to sit proudly atop the Championship table.

Warnock said: "This is an achievement for all of us at the Club, from the top to the bottom. We`ve made some good signings and integrated them quickly into the group, which isn`t always easy. I`m delighted with the award - for the whole Club and our fantastic fans."

George Burley chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel.

He said: "Neil has got Cardiff City off to a flying start to the season having won all of their league games so far. They had an impressive away win against Wolverhampton who have splashed out a lot of money during the summer. With Neil`s experience and record of getting teams promotion, Cardiff must be a genuine contender for promotion this season.

Sky Sports` EFL pundit Don Goodman said: "With a 100% win record club for August you cannot fault Neil Warnock and his Cardiff City side. Warnock is a proven figure at this level and his handling of summer capture Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, who he picked up on a free from Rochdale, has breathed a new lease of life into a Cardiff side which finished 12th last term."

Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Mikey Mumford said: "The Bluebirds have belied pre-season expectations and title odds of 33/1 and now find themselves second favourites at 7/1 behind big spending Wolves for the Championship crown. They enter September already as short as 1/8 to better their final league position last season and now managing at his 15th professional club, another Warnock promotion -adding to his previous seven - is now just a 7/4 chance."
