Motherwell duo Jim Gannon and Lukas Jutkiewicz have claimed the SPL Manager and Young Player of the Month awards, respectively, for October.
Well were unbeaten in the league throughout the month with wins over Falkirk and Hearts while they drew with Celtic and St Mirren.
Their solid form sees them fourth in the table with just one defeat, while on-loan striker Jutkiewicz scored three times, including a brace against The Buddies.
Gannon has admitted his surprise at winning the monthly prize, while Jutkiewicz says the recognition is an added bonus.
"It's a pleasant surprise," Gannon said. "I don't know how these awards are concluded but to win it is great.
"I'm always a little bit bashful with individual awards because it's really about what everyone has done over the course of the month. I'm really thankful for everyone's efforts."
Jutkiewicz, 20, said: "It's a nice bonus.
"The goals are the things that get you noticed as a striker but it's been a really good month for me personally and also for the team."
