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

They are as follows:-

Dougie Freedman (Bolton Wanderers)
Freedman re-affirmed faith at the Reebok Stadium as he led his side to three successive victories. Their away wins at Bournemouth and Watford were built on a sound defensive platform and hauled them out of the bottom three.

Oscar Garcia (Brighton and Hove Albion)
The Spaniard quietly restored resilience to Brighton while developing their passing style. His team earned 10 points from four matches, three of them away, including a 1-0 win at Wigan Athletic.

Brian McDermott (Leeds United)
Nine points from a possible 12 instilled a consistency during November which has made McDermott's Leeds genuine promotion contenders. The manager has fashioned a well-rounded forward line which attacks at pace.

Nigel Pearson (Leicester City)
Pearson has developed his side into a thrilling attacking force, going forward at will and creating chances aplenty. Three wins from four games took Leicester to the top of the Sky Bet Championship table with eight goals scored.

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