Championship high-flyers Derby County enjoy a clean sweep of awards, with Gary Rowett named Manager of the Month and goalkeeper Scott Carson winning Player of the Month.

Championship high-flyers Derby County have secured a clean sweep of both the Manager of the Month and Player of the Month awards for December.

The Rams enjoyed a fruitful December, securing a 16-point haul from six games with only one goal conceded to end 2017 second in the table.

Derby boss Gary Rowett was awarded the manager's gong for masterminding wins against Burton Albion, Barnsley, Aston Villa, Millwall and Ipswich Town, alongside a draw at Hull City.

Goalkeeper Scott Carson, meanwhile, was given the player's award for December thanks to five clean sheets from the month's six games, with only one goal conceded.

Rowett triumphed over Bristol City's Lee Johnson, Alex Neil of Preston North End, and Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

Carson was voted the Player of the Month ahead of Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson, Bristol City's Jamie Paterson and Romaine Sawyers of Brentford.
