The nominations for the npower Championship Player of the Month award for November have been announced.

They are as follows:-

Sone Aluko (Hull City)
Playing off the main striker Jay Simpson, the 23-year-old Nigerian seems to have found his position impressing with dazzling link-up play and an array of spectacular goals. A pinpoint free-kick against Wolverhampton Wanderers was followed by two solo efforts in the 3-2 win at Birmingham City.

Marlon King (Birmingham City)
Six goals in seven November games included two in the 3-2 win over promotion-chasing Middlesbrough. Using his well-documented strength, galvanising presence and hold-up play has proven very effective in drawing defenders out of position, creating space and goals aplenty for his team-mates.

Danny Shittu (Millwall)
The imposing defender has been a highly influential figure for the Lions since he regained full match sharpness and returned to the side. A commanding presence in the air, fiercely competitive on the ground, he led by example as Millwall conceded just two goals in six matches.

The winners will be announced on Friday live on Sky Sports News, from 10am.
