Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman has scooped the Championship Manager of the Month award for September.
Freedman was rewarded with the prize after leading Palace to four wins and a draw in the Championship last month.
After a slow start to the season, Palace recorded their first Championship win of the campaign with a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday.
The month also included victories over Charlton, Cardiff and Bolton with Palace dropping their only points in September in a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest.
It was an awards double for Palace with striker Glenn Murray bagging the Player of the Month award.
Murray bagged six goals in September, including a hat-trick in the 3-2 win over Cardiff.
