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

They are as follows:-

Fraizer Campbell (Cardiff City)
A January transfer window acquisition, the 25-year-old scored the winning goal at Leeds United with his first touch as a substitute. Remarkably, he scored every one of Cardiff's goals in February, with two apiece in the wins over Bristol City and Wolverhampton Wanderers, finishing coolly on each occasion.

Tomasz Kuszczak (Brighton and Hove Albion)
The ex-Manchester United stopper has become the defensive rock upon which Brighton and Hove Albion founded their climb into the Play-Off positions. He has produced a series of brilliant saves throughout the month, most notably in the victories over promotion rivals Hull City and Cardiff City, and to preserve a third clean sheet against Burnley.

Jamie Ward (Derby County)
The energetic forward returned from injury to inspire his side going forward, scoring five goals in six February games - the highlight of which was a scorching volley in the 3-0 victory over Huddersfield Town. He clearly relished the responsibility of leading the attack and was a constant pest to defenders.

The winners will be announced on Friday live on Sky Sports News, from 9am.
