The nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award for August have been announced.

They are as follows:-

Sean Dyche (Burnley)
Three wins and a draw from five games following the eve-of-season sale of the prolific Charlie Austin demonstrated Dyche's ability to make believers of his players. Built a firm foundation with three clean sheets.

Eddie Howe (Bournemouth)
Three victories in his side's debut month in the Championship, Howe was able to maintain the confidence and focus of his players in spite of two heavy away defeats, masterminding a win over Wigan Athletic and a defining 1-0 success at Doncaster Rovers.

Paul Ince (Blackpool)
An exceptional month considering the injuries which afflicted an already small squad. Forced into fielding players out of their natural positions, Ince nevertheless inspired his team to 13 August points out of 15.

Harry Redknapp (Queens Park Rangers)
Instilled a togetherness and harmony that was absent last season as Rangers enjoyed an unbeaten month conceding just two goals in five games and winning clinically at potential promotion rivals Bolton Wanderers and Leeds United.

The winners will be announced on Friday live on Sky Sports News.
