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

They are as follows:-

Chris Eagles (Bolton Wanderers)
Superb end-of-season form from the 27-year-old whose four vital goals, including the winner against Huddersfield Town, all of them swept home with panache, almost lifted Bolton into the npower Championship Play-Offs.

Chris Solly (Charlton Athletic)
Tactically superb, Solly helped his side to record clean sheets at Brighton and Hove Albion and at Cardiff City with a goal-saving block. Strode forward with purpose, as well, to supply crosses, notably for Yann Kermogant to head home in the 4-1 final-day win over Bristol City.

James Vaughan (Huddersfield Town)
Five goals in the final month, including a hat trick in the 3-1 win at Bristol City, helped Huddersfield avoid the drop. It was also his all-round play which caught the eye. Vaughan led the line superbly and formed a prolific strike partnership with Jermaine Beckford.

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