Wanderers Receive Double Award

 Owen Coyle and Johan Elmander have been named Barclays Manager and Barclays Player of the Month respectively for November.

The month saw Wanderers collect 11 points out of a possible 15 with victories over Tottenham Hotspur (4-2), Wolves (3-2) and Newcastle United (5-1), whilst also drawing against Everton (1-1) at Goodison Park and fighting back from a two-goal deficit to earn a point against Blackpool (2-2) at the Reebok Stadium.

Commenting on the awards, Coyle said: "It's a fantastic accolade for the football club and it's very much a collective effort. I'm delighted as the manager to receive the award on behalf of everybody.

"The staff, players and supporters have all played their part and I believe the club as a whole can be pleased of what has been achieved.

"For Johan, it's a great reward because we all know what he is capable of and now he is adding goals to his game and getting the credit that he deserves.

"There was a lot of hard work put in by everybody but what we must do now is kick-on and look to improve.

"We've got some big games coming up and we are looking forward to them. They will be difficult and we know that we will have to be at our maximum for each and every one."

The award maintains Coyle's record of collecting a Manager of the Month accolade at every club that he has managed. He was named Scottish First Division Manager of the Month in March 2006 whilst at St. Johnstone and Championship Manager of the Month in September 2008 during his time in charge of Burnley.

Elmander, who sits behind Dimitar Berbatov, Andy Carroll and Carlos Tevez in the Premier League's goalscoring charts, becomes the first Bolton Wanderers player to pick up the Player of the Month award since Kevin Nolan in February 2006. Jay Jay Okocha was also named winner in November 2003.

The two decisions were made by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football's governing bodies, the media and fans.
