Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month nominations

5 March 2015

The nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month award for February.

Odion Ighalo (Watford)

This is a second straight nomination for Ighalo, the instinctive marksman who scored six goals in five games during February. The 25-year-old displayed his full array of finishing with a snapshot against Blackburn Rovers, a header and a volley at Brentford and a smooth strike at Bolton Wanderers.

Tom Ince (Derby County)

Ince has rediscovered his zest since his move to Derby County. His superb free-kick against Bolton Wanderers triggered a string of classy goals, with a neat curler at Rotherham United the pick of his other five strikes.

Henri Lansbury (Nottingham Forest)

Lansbury was the fulcrum of Forest’s stellar February with goals in five successive games - including two free-kicks and a stunning effort against Wigan Athletic - allied to defensive diligence, consistency and a new maturity as he assumed the captaincy.

Marco Silvestri (Leeds United)

An all-action month for the Italian who spent it diving all over the place in a one-man show of defiance. Fine reaction saves against Brentford, Reading and Brighton were bettered by a series of stops to preserve a 1-0 win at Middlesbrough.

The winners will be announced on Friday.
