Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has been named the npower League 1 Manager of the Month for November.

In collecting three league wins, two draws and a win in the FA Cup in November, Bournemouth extended their undefeated run to 10 games and with Howe unbeaten since his return to the South Coast, the Cherries are proving to be the very embodiment of 'hard to beat'.

With the npower League 1 table looking so tight at the top, this consistency could be invaluable during the busy Christmas period.

Speaking about Eddie Howe's win, panel member Alan Curbishley commented: "Eddie Howe has enjoyed a remarkable return to Bournemouth as his side remain unbeaten following his appointment. The Cherries are now firmly in Play-Off contention in npower League 1."
