RYAN Manning has been recognised for his performances in April by being named in WhoScored.com’s Championship Team of the Month.
The 22-year-old has been operating at left-back since returning to the side and he played five matches during the month of April.
During that time, he helped the R’s to keep two clean sheets and earn four points, as they secured their Sky Bet Championship status.
WhoScored.com - who use statistics to rate players - handed Manning an April rating of 7.3, making him the highest-scoring left-back in the division for last month.
Speaking in a recent episode of The Loftcast, Manning said: “I played at left-back a little bit last season and I don’t mind it. You have less of the pitch to cover, so to speak, compared to central midfield and I’m enjoying it.”
