    TV: McCall lauds his ‘Well squad

    ‘Well boss Stuart McCall paid tribute to his team after picking up his second Clydesdale Bank Manager of the Month award of the season.

    The former Scotland International collected his gong this afternoon after Motherwell won away three times during October, at Tannadice, Easter Road and the Caledonian Stadium.

    But the typically modest McCall was quick to hail his squad, including Player of the Month Keith Lasley.

    “I was fortunate to get it a couple of months ago and when you win the manager of the month award, it’s basically because you`ve had the team of the month,” he said.

    “When I look at the two performances at Tannadice and Easter Road, the lads were outstanding. Decent game against Kilmarnock and then we went up to Inverness and although we weren`t at our best, and full credit to Inverness because they played really well, we managed to score three terrific goals.

    “We`ve had a good month and all the plaudits go to the players.”

    McCall wins Manager of the Month

    Motherwell Manager Stuart McCall has been named the Clydesdale Bank Premier League Manager of the Month for October.

    Stuart McCall guided his side to tough away wins against Dundee United, Hibernian and Inverness C.T. as well as a home draw against Kilmarnock throughout the month.

    ‘Well were on sensational form as they recorded a 3-1 win over Dundee Utd which they followed up with a hard fought 1-0 win at Hibs before a 0-0 draw at home to Kilmarnock.  McCall’s side then rounded off October with a thrilling 3-2 win against Inverness C.T. to take them three points clear of Celtic and into second place in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

    It was McCall’s emphasis on attacking football whilst maintaining positive results particularly in three tough away trips that led the panel to pick him as their Clydesdale Bank Premier League Manager of the Month.

    A panel of Scottish football experts chose the award winners from a shortlist which included the top three fans’ nominations from Clydesdale Bank’s football website, www.cbfootball.co.uk.
