Thomas Frank has been nominated for the EFL Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award after an unbeaten January across two competitions.
After steadying the ship with a three-match unbeaten run to end December, Thomas' Bees hit their stride in January, winning three and drawing two of our five games in all competitions.
The month started with a 1-1 draw at home to Sky Bet Championship high-flyers Norwich City before Oxford United were seen off 1-0 at Griffin Park in the Emirates FA Cup. A fine all-round performance ensured a 3-1 victory over Stoke City before four goals on the road at Rotherham United ended our wait for a league win away from home. The month then finished with a dramatic 3-3 FA Cup draw at Barnet.
Thomas is up against Blackburn Rovers' Tony Mowbray, Lee Johnson of Bristol City, and Swansea City boss Graham Potter for the monthly prize while the players' prize will be contested between the attacking quartet of Tammy Abraham [Aston Villa], Adam Armstrong [Blackburn Rovers], Kamil Grosicki [Hull City], and Oli McBurnie [Swansea City].
The winners will be announced on brentfordfc.com tomorrow, Friday, morning.
