Player and Manager of the Month for September

Crystal Palace duo Dougie Freedman and Glenn Murray have won Septemberís Manager and Player of the Month awards respectively.

Freedman led the Eagles to impressive wins over Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton, Cardiff and Bolton plus a draw with Nottingham Forest.

Murray inspired these victories with six goals in five matches - four of which came from the penalty spot.

Panel member Alan Curbishley said: "This award completes a fantastic month for Dougie with Palace remaining unbeaten and recording notable wins at home to Cardiff City and away at Bolton Wanderers. It's a great start to the season and I can see them occupying a place in and around the play-off positions at the end of the season."

Npower sponsorship Manager Emma Collins added: ďItís great to see a young manager doing so well, so weíre delighted to be giving the npower Football League Championship Manager of the Month award to Dougie. Crystal Palaceís form in September was the best in the league, so it was one of our easier decisions.
