The nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award for August have been announced.
They are as follows:-
Neil Adams (Norwich City)
Overcame an opening day defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers to instil belief and confidence at Carrow Road with 10 points from the next four games. Moulded his side in his image and savoured a 1-0 East Anglian derby victory at Ipswich Town.
Kenny Jackett (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
Picked up where his side left off in May with four wins from five and just two goals conceded. Most impressively, they recorded 1-0 victories over Norwich City, Fulham and Cardiff City - the clubs relegated from the Premier League.
Stuart Pearce (Nottingham Forest)
Made an almost perfect return to the City Ground with a haul of 13 points from 15. Just as important as the energetic, attacking displays by his new-look strike force were, the wins under pressure at Bournemouth and Sheffield Wednesday also impressed.
Ian Holloway (Millwall)
In tune with his club, the fans and his players, he has brought Millwall's end-of-season form from 2013/14 into this campaign with 10 points from five games. Combined entertainment with pragmatism in the 1-0 London derby victory at Fulham.
The winners will be announced on Friday.
