The January nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month Award are:

Paul Lambert (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
The upward trend since his arrival at Molineux continued with seven points gained from four difficult fixtures. Maintained his players` focus on the league even as they celebrated cup success over Premier League opponents.

Alex Neil (Norwich City)
Refused to buckle under the pressure of a poor pre-Christmas run. Maintained belief in his players and principles to inspire a nine-point haul from four January games that lifted Norwich back to the fringes of the play-off positions.

Jaap Stam (Reading)
Four victories from six games solidified Reading`s place in the play-off positions and underscored the patience that Stam preaches to his players – never more apparent than the win at Bristol City from 2-0 down with 18 minutes left.

Neil Warnock (Cardiff City)
His side collected 12 points from six games in a busy January in which his messages began to sink into his players. Organisation and spirit have been evident in all his teams. Both were obvious in Cardiff`s 3-2 comeback win at Bristol City.

Winners will be announced on Friday 10th February 2017.
