Leicester City's Nigel Pearson is one of four nominees for March's Championship Manager of the Month award.

Leicester City's Nigel Pearson has been included in the nominees for March's Championship Manager of the Month award.

A crucial 2-0 victory over fellow promotion hopefuls Burnely helped Pearson's side continue their unbeaten run, which dates back to December, and ensure they remain favourites to win the title.

Despite the defeat to Leicester in March, Burnley manager Sean Dyche has been nominated after guiding his team to a tally of 16 points from seven games.

Eddie Howe is rewarded for keeping Bournemouth's playoff hopes alive following an impressive month for his side, who earned four wins and a draw away from home.

Doncaster Rovers manager Paul Dickov saw his players earn breathing space in the battle to avoid relegation by earning 13 points and beating Yorkshire rivals Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield Town.
