Manager and Player of the Month for OctoberThe Hatters are delighted to announce that John Still AND Mark Cullen have won the Sky Bet League 2 manager and player of the month awards respectively for October.
The Town won all five of their League 2 games during the month, with Cullen grabbing five goals in four matches, including a hat-trick in the 3-1 win over Dagenham & Redbridge.
Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “John Still has invigorated Luton Town as a club and they have carried all of their momentum from last season into the Football League.
“The man from Essex continues to use his tried and tested methods to great effect.”
On Cullen’s prize, Still added: “Although Mark has hit the headlines with his goals in October, his overall performances so far this season have been terrific.
“A lot was made of Andre Gray’s departure in the summer, but I knew that in Mark we had a natural goal-scorer.
“He is capable of scoring any kind of goal, and obviously his hat-trick against Dagenham saw him highlight that, with goals with both feet and his head.”
The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.
