Nominated: Sean Dyche and Jason Shackell

Clarets boss Sean Dyche and skipper Jason Shackell have been nominated for SkyBet Championship accolades for September.

Others in line for the managerial gong include Millwall’s Steve Lomas, Leicester City’s Nigel Pearson and Watford’s Gianfranco Zola.

Dyche was named by the panel after the Clarets picked up 10 points from four Championship fixtures during the month, which included 3-0 wins over Birmingham City and Charlton Athletic at Turf Moor plus a 2-1 triumph over Leeds United at Elland Road.

Meanwhile defender Shackell was named in a list that included QPR goalkeeper Robert Green, Reading midfielder Danny Guthrie and Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick.

Shackell marshalled the Clarets defence to two clean sheets throughout a month which saw the club concede on two occasions.

The winners will be announced at 6 a.m. on Friday.
