Charlton and Luton Town have claimed November's Sky Bet Manager and Player of the Month Awards respectively, while there is double delight for Bury in League Two.

Sky Bet League One

Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer has been named the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month for November.

It was a perfect month for Charlton and for Bowyer who led his side into the Play-Off positions with four wins from four games.

He has built a team with a solid defensive foundation, as evidenced by just two goals conceded in the month.

Bowyer said: “I'm over the moon. But I'm not just delighted for myself because it is something for the club as well. Everyone is involved, including all the staff that nobody sees, and the players because they are the ones who go out and win games.

“We prepare them as best as we can and that's my job, but the most important thing is the players are getting rewarded. I get the trophy but it's not just about what we do, and the fans are part of it too. We are all in this together, the players, the fans, everybody.”

Luton Town attacking midfielder Elliot Lee has been named the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month for November.

Lee scored five goals and made another with a delightful clipped pass against Plymouth, but it was his footballing intelligence which stood out most. He possesses an uncanny knack for arriving in the box at exactly the right moment.

Lee said: “In this team, wherever you play, you’re going to get chances. It’s good to be top scorer despite not playing as an out and out striker.

“I like to think that I am a natural goalscorer and this month I’ve found myself in the right place at the right time, so I’m happy with how it’s going at the minute.

Sky Bet League Two

In Sky Bet League Two it is double delight for Bury, as they collected both the Manager and Player of the Month for November.

Ryan Lowe has been named the Manager of the Month as his side delivered 14 goals and 10 points from four games.

Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “Lowe’s Bury side are fast becoming one of the most exciting sides to watch in the whole EFL, with players throughout the team capable of entertaining the Shakers fans.

“They’ve already notched four or more goals on six separate occasions this season, with three of those coming in November league games.”

Midfielder Jay O’Shea has been named Player of the Month with four goals and two assists as Bury scored for fun .

O’Shea used the spaces created by the likes of Danny Mayor to shoot at will. With two free-kicks, three of his goals came from outside the area.

O’Shea said: “I think I won the award two years ago, at Chesterfield, but it’s definitely the best run I’ve been on at Bury.

“I think confidence and the way the team is playing is what has allowed me to get so many opportunities in front of goal and the way the team’s been performing has allowed me to chip in with a few myself.”
