Former Forest Green manager in contention for top gong


Former Forest Green manager Rob Edwards has been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month Award for April.

Edwards enjoyed a dream month as Luton clinched a play-off berth with 14 points from six unbeaten games. To add to the feelgood factor Edwards has brought to Kenilworth Road, he enjoyed personal redemption with a 2-0 derby day win over Watford.

The other April nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month Award are:

Paul Heckingbottom (Sheffield United)

Even the lure of an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley could not deflect Heckingbottom from his true purpose of achieving automatic promotion. Six wins out of seven games with a 13-4 goals differential meant they accomplished it comfortably.

Russell Martin (Swansea City)

With little more than pride at stake, Swansea played free and easy in April as Martin’s expansive passing style reaped a reward of 17 points from seven unbeaten games and pushed the Welsh side into the top half of the table. 

Neil Warnock (Huddersfield Town)

It would not be a Championship season without a Warnock nomination. His powers of persuasion remain undiminished, inspiring an ailing Huddersfield side to 11 points from six difficult fixtures and the cusp of a successful fight against relegation.
