Martin Jol has won the Barclays Manager of the Month Award for December after an impressive month that saw us jump six places in the Barclays Premiership.
Head Coach Martin's award follows a superb run of form that saw us pick up 13 points out of a possible 15 in December.
We enjoyed away wins at Blackburn, Manchester City and Norwich, an emphatic home victory against Southampton and then a draw against Palace.
We've now stretched that run to eight games unbeaten in the league.
The decision was made by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football’s governing bodies, the media and fans.
Nic Gault, from the Barclays Awards Panel, said: "Since his appointment in early November Martin Jol's side has only been beaten twice in the Barclays Premiership. He is often praised for being a progressive coach with immense tactical knowledge and man-management skills and his teams performances over the last month are testament to this acclaim."
