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

They are as follows:-

Sean Dyche (Burnley)
April was perhaps his most impressive month of a stellar season. Dyche had to manage without influential players, instil belief in their replacements and stay calm as his side gained 13 points from six games to clinch automatic promotion.

Oscar Garcia (Brighton & Hove Albion)
Garcia guided his side to the cusp of the Play-Off places with a seven-match unbeaten month. The highlight was a 4-1 win at table-topping Leicester City. A total of 14 goals in April exceeded the total for the rest of 2014 combined.

Ian Holloway (Millwall)
The experienced manager re-discovered his magic touch as Millwall went unbeaten during the month. His side's gritty determination to avoid relegation was evident in a marvellous 10-point haul from four difficult away trips to Nottingham Forest, Wigan Athletic, Middlesbrough and Queens Park Rangers.

Nigel Pearson (Leicester City)
Pearson finished off the task of leading Leicester to promotion and the Sky Bet Championship title in style. His cool of head complemented the ferocious drive he instilled in his players as they picked up 14 points from a possible 21 in April.

The winners will be announced on Friday.
