The nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award for December 2016.Chris Hughton (Brighton & Hove Albion)
Oversaw another stellar month from his side by steering them to 13 points from a maximum 15 as they continued their serene progress towards automatic promotion. His calmness under pressure is being transmitted to his players.
Slavisa Jokanovic (Fulham)
Has built a side which is as entertaining as any seen in the Sky Bet Championship in recent seasons. Five unbeaten games brought 11 points and 15 goals. The most striking display was a convincing 5-0 triumph over promotion rivals Reading.
Garry Monk (Leeds United)
Spreading stability and gradually earning the trust of fans and directors alike, he has turned Leeds into a side capable of sustaining a promotion challenge, something they did in December by gaining 13 points from six games.
David Wagner (Huddersfield Town)
A month which saw him turn down offers of a return to the Bundesliga to stay in West Yorkshire saw his team garner 14 points from a possible 18, scoring in every game and strengthening their position in the Play-Off places.
The winner will be announced on Friday.
