The February nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month Award are:
Dougie Freedman (Nottingham Forest)
A rampaging start to his tenure at the City Ground with Forest collecting 16 points from 18 and averaging over three goals per game in spite of losing top scorer Britt Assombalonga. Freedman trusts his players and has given them back their confidence.
Kenny Jackett (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
Jackett has quietly brought Wolves up towards the Play-Off places with four wins from six games and a 14-5 goal differential, forging an attacking spearhead on to a solid defensive foundation.
Slavisa Jokanovic (Watford)
Of his side’s five victories in February, three of them were comeback wins away from home - at Brentford, Bolton Wanderers and Leeds United. With a wealth of attacking talent at his disposal, Jokanovic clearly fancies his players to outscore the opposition.
Alex Neil (Norwich City)
Largely unknown prior to arriving at Carrow Road from Hamilton Academicals, Neil has galvanised the players and demanded a consistency which brought five convincing February wins in as many games.
ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON FRIDAY MARCH 6 2015
The judging panel comprises former Ipswich Town manager George Burley, Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery
