Manager and skipper shortlisted for Sky Bet monthly awards
Sean Dyche has been rewarded for the Clarets’ climb to the Championship summit with a manager of the month nomination.
Dyche is one of four managers shortlisted for the Sky Bet award for September, which also sees skipper Jason Shackell pick up a Player of the Month nomination.
It is the second month in succession that Dyche has been nominated, after missing out to Blackpool’s Paul Ince in August.
However, three wins and a draw from four league games in the subsequent month, plus an impressive Capital One Cup victory over Nottingham Forest, means that Dyche is again up for the award, where his rivals are Steve Lomas (Millwall), Nigel Pearson (Leicester City) and Gianfranco Zola (Watford).
Shackell earns his reward for marshalling a Clarets back line that conceded just two goals in four league games and kept two clean sheets.
The Clarets’ captain’s competition for the award comes from Robert Green (Queen’s Park Rangers), Danny Guthrie (Reading) and David McGoldrick ( Ipswich Town ).
The winners of both awards will be announced on Friday, October 4 2013
