The February nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award are:
Steve Bruce (Sheffield Wednesday)
Wednesday had to wait for him to take charge at Hillsborough but it was certainly worth the delay. Batteries fully charged, Bruce inspired his new team to 12 points from six unbeaten games, which included four clean sheets.
Daniel Farke (Norwich City)
A 3-1 win at title rivals Leeds set the tone for another breathless month of entertainment from his side, which included a 3-2 comeback win over Bristol City and a sweeping 4-0 victory at Bolton. It all added up to 12 points from five games.
Alex Neil (Preston North End)
Unlucky not to have been nominated before, Neil has improved his side month on month. He then enriched it with some astute January signings. With 11 more points from five unbeaten games, the play-offs may be within reach.
Chris Wilder (Sheffield United)
Fixtures against Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and West Brom suggested a tricky month, yet Wilder and his men swept away all before them with conviction. A haul of 13 points from a possible 15 and four clean sheets lifted them into the top two.
