The December nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month award are:
Jarrod Bowen (Hull City) - striker
December was the month in which the 22-year-old rediscovered last season’s scoring form with six goals in as many matches, plus an assist. The goals came in braces and showcased his precision shooting after cutting inside.
Kemar Roofe (Leeds United) - striker
His five goals in six games accounted for three wins for Leeds. Most impressively as he continues to evolve as a striker was his ability to find space on the ground and in the air to complete comeback wins over Aston Villa and Blackburn.
Billy Sharp (Sheffield United) - striker
It’s not how many goals you score, but how important they are. Of Sharp’s five in six games, four of them either put the Blades ahead or brought them level. Two headers demonstrated he is equally adept with feet or head.
Harry Wilson (Derby County) – midfielder
After sparkling intermittently in the autumn, Wilson was brilliant throughout December, setting up others with his vision and the timing of his passes as well as contributing three goals, including another spectacular free-kick at Sheffield United.
All winners will be announced on Friday 11 January 2018.
