Preston North End boss Simon Grayson has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month for September.

Grayson led his side to a perfect month with a maximum four victories and a goal differential of 8-2.

He bolstered his side in the summer bringing in the likes of Kevin Davies and has brought belief back to the Deepdale faithful.

Former Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley, who chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel, said: "An impressive month for Preston taking maximum points from their four games.

"Grayson's side have a solid platform to build on for the season after their strong start and he is a manager that has previously enjoyed considerable success in this division."

Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins said: "It's been a fantastic September for Preston as they won all of their Sky Bet League 1 games.

"Grayson's decision to bring in the experienced Kevin Davies looks to be giving Preston more resilience than they've previously displayed."
