An award for everyone - Johnson

Lee Johnson has dedicated his Manager of the Month award for September to his players, staff and City’s fanbase.

The head coach guided his team to four wins and two draws in the Sky Bet Championship during the month, as well as dumping Premier League side Stoke City out of the Carabao Cup.

Subsequently he has beaten off competition from Steve Bruce (Aston Villa), Daniel Farke (Norwich City) and Alex Neil (Preston North End) to land the accolade.

“It was always going to be a tough month," Johnson told BCTV after collecting his trophy.

“I’m delighted with the points tally we achieved and the players have been exceptional.

“I accept this award on behalf of the players, my staff and our supporters as well, because they went the extra mile in the month with lots of away trips.

“A lot was said about our away record last season and we knew it was something we had to address. We’ve been very consistent both at home and away through a lot of hard work.

“I couldn’t be happier with my group of players at this stage of the season.”

WHAT HE SAID

“I accept this award on behalf of the players, my staff and our supporters as well, because they went the extra mile in the month with lots of away trips."

September's Manager of the Month Lee Johnson

Johnson wasn’t the only person at Ashton Gate being rewarded, with centre-back Aden Flint picking up the Championship Player of the Month award.

The City head coach added: “To come back with the attitude he has following the closure of the transfer window and all the speculation that surrounded him has been good.

“We’ve maintained a strong relationship and that will continue moving forward. He’s been exceptional, along with the rest of the defence and the keeper, but somebody’s got to win Player of the Month and we’re delighted it’s Aden.”
