ISMAËL NOMINATED FOR FEBRUARY AWARD

11 March 2021

The gaffer has been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award after a perfect record through February!

Daniel Farke (Norwich City)

February began with Norwich struggling to score a goal and losing top spot in the Championship. Farke saw no cause for concern and was proven right when 12 goals and five straight wins saw his side surge seven points clear.

 

Valérien Ismaël (Barnsley)

Succeeding Gerhard Struber at Oakwell seemed a thankless task when Ismaël was appointed, yet the Frenchman has built seamlessly on the foundation he was left. A perfect five wins from five turned Barnsley into promotion contenders.

 

Mick McCarthy (Cardiff City)

Has made an astounding impact in south Wales, re-igniting Cardiff’s promotion ambitions as they collected 19 points from a possible 21. His man-management skills were evident in his handling of mercurial, if fitful, midfielder Harry Wilson.

 

Mark Warburton (Queens Park Rangers)

Warburton’s side had been slowly sinking. February’s fixtures didn’t augur well with games against high-flying Watford, Brentford and Bournemouth, but all three were beaten as Rangers amassed 13 points from six games.

 

ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON FRIDAY 12 MARCH 2021

 

The Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel comprises former Barnsley manager Danny Wilson, Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; EFL Communications Director Mark Rowan, and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
