Burnley manager Sean Dyche and skipper Jason Shackell have been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship’s April Manager and Player of Month Awards respectively.
It’s been a memorable month for Dyche and his side.
Over a hectic period, the Clarets gathered 13 points out of a possible 18 to clinch automatic promotion to the Premier League.
Dyche, who has won the award twice and has now been nominated an impressive five times for the accolade this season, will be up against Oscar Garcia (Brighton & Hove Albion), Ian Holloway (Millwall) and Nigel Pearson (Leicester City).
This is the second nomination of the season for club captain Shackell, who has been part of a defensive back line that has conceded just two goals in April, adding four more clean sheets to make it 21 for the campaign in all competitions.
Shackell has been nominated alongside Nicky Bailey (Millwall), Adam Bogdan (Bolton Wanderers) and Rudy Gestede (Blackburn Rovers)
The winner of both awards will be announced on Friday 2 May.
