Steve Bruce named Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month

Steve Bruce has been named the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month for January.

Bruce helped us land a maximum 12 points from four games and move up to third in the Championship, conceding just a single goal in the process. 

Assistant Manager Colin Calderwood, who picked up the award on Bruce's behalf, said: "We've had some tough games in Bristol City and Sheffield United, teams in around us, and the importance of those games brought us to a new level of performance.

"We had difficult moments in those two games especially but we ended up coming out with positive results and I think it's that type of thing that helps get runs going. Our performance level has been good but the quality of our goals has been excellent. 

"This is as talented a group as any, certainly going forward, but it's the togetherness of the dressing room which is a telling factor and that's something that has been fundamental in a lot of the successful clubs throughout the country.

"The dressing room has been good and been noisy, with the right level of concentration and fun within it and when you've got that it's a great platform. Behind the scenes that's one of the biggest things I've noticed as a coach or a manager."
