Johnson makes January award shortlist

Lee Johnson has been nominated for Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award for the second-month running.

The City head coach guided his team to wins in each of their three league matches against Stoke City, Bolton Wanderers and Nottingham Forest.

His team scored five times, conceding only one goal in the process too.

Johnson, who this week marked three years in charge at the club, goes up against Thomas Frank (Brentford), Tony Mowbray (Blackburn Rovers), and Graham Potter (Swansea City) for the monthly accolade.

The award does not take int account other cup competitions.
