It was 'double delight' for Saints on Friday, with both Ralph Hasenhüttl and Ché Adams being nominated for October awards.
Having led the Club to two wins and a draw last month, Hasenhüttl was rightly named on the Premier League Manager of the Month shortlist.
The Austrian helped guide Saints to an unbeaten October, with 2-0 wins against West Bromwich Albion and Everton, as well as a hard-fought 3-3 draw at Chelsea.

Its fair to say it took Ché Adams a little while to settle on the South Coast, but boy is he making up for it now!
After a very impressive few months, which have seen him finally add Premier League goals to his tireless work ethic, the October Player of the Month nomination feels fully justified.
Adams put in a Man of the Match performance at Chelsea - scoring one and creating another (for Danny Ings) - while also finding the net versus Everton at St. Mary's.
With Ings now sidelined for the next few weeks, goalscoring focus has shifted almost entirely to Adams. Hopefully this nomination, alongside his consistent form, will help to increase personal confidence still further.
