Fulham Manager Roy Hodgson has been named Barclays manager of the month for October.

The decision was made by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football's governing bodies, the media and fans.

Hodgson picked up October's gaffer gong after guiding the Cottagers through an unbeaten month despite a tricky fixture list.

His charges kicked off the month with a 2-2 draw at West Ham and were only denied three points by Hammers striker Junior Stanislas' last-gasp equaliser.

This was followed by a comfortable 2-0 win at home to Hull City before the team came back from two goals down to secure an excellent draw away at Manchester City.

Fulham completed the month with a fine 3-1 victory over Liverpool, a win that saw the club move into mid-table and away from the relegation danger zone.

This is the third time Hodgson has won the award and comes almost 12 years since he last scooped the prize in December 1997, while manager of Blackburn Rovers. He also won the award in August 1997.
