The nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award for February.Sean Dyche (Burnley)
Dyche seems to have an innate ability to time a promotion drive to perfection. While their rivals stuttered, the Clarets boss guided his team through six unbeaten games - including a pivotal 1-0 win over then leaders Hull - to the top of the Championship.
Simon Grayson (Preston North End)
February was a third successive winning month for Grayson’s men as they moved to the fringes of Play-Off contention. Four wins and a draw from six games reflected his consistent approach, tactical nous and firm trust in his players.
Chris Hughton (Brighton & Hove Albion)
Hughton's reward for not panicking when Brighton suffered a blip around Christmas was a stellar February. His side renewed its promotion credentials with 13 points from six games and 15 goals scored – seven more than any other Championship team.
Lee Johnson (Bristol City)
January’s Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month made the step up to the Sky Bet Championship appear simple, leading his new team to three wins in his four games and instilling defensive stability, organisation and, crucially, belief.
The winner will be announced on Friday.
