Paul Cook will discover on Friday morning if he’s won the Sky Bet Championship manager of the month award for September.

Nine points from five games during the month saw last season’s League One champions consolidate in the play-off places, despite some tough fixtures.

Also up for the award is Daniel Farke (Norwich City), Darren Moore (West Bromwich Albion) and Chris Wilder (Sheffield United).

The judging panel comprises ex-Ipswich boss George Burley, Sky Sports’ pundit Don Goodman, EFL Marketing Director Drew Barrand, LMA Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet EFL Trader Mikey Mumford.
