Darren Moore has been nominated for the Championship manager of the month award for the third time this season.

Darren Moore has been nominated for manager of the month again.

Albion’s head coach guided Albion to a six-game unbeaten run in December, winning three games and drawing three more.

It is his second successive nomination for the award and means he has been shortlisted three times in the first five months of the season.

Having won the Premier League manager of the month award for April, Moore has now been nominated for four monthly gongs in the first six months he has been eligible.

He has already won two of them.

In December, Albion showed their resilience with late equalisers against rivals Villa and Sheffield Wednesday at The Hawthorns.

But it was their impressive 2-1 turnaround victory at Bramall Lane against fellow promotion-hopefuls Sheffield United that was the pick of the month’s results.

Albion also picked up back-to-back clean sheets for the first time of the season, thrashing Rotherham 4-0 at the New York Stadium before beating Wigan 2-0 at home on Boxing Day.

Moore is up for the award alongside Hull City’s Nigel Adkins, Leeds United’s Marcelo Bielsa and Bristol City’s Lee Johnson.


The Baggies boss was also nominated for manager of the month in November, but lost out to Norwich City’s Daniel Farke.

He was named Championship manager of the month in September, when striker Dwight Gayle also won player of the month.

Former Albion striker Kemar Roofe has been nominated for December’s player of the month award, alongside Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp, Derby County midfielder Harry Wilson, and Hull City forward Jared Bowen.

Former Albion and Wolves striker Don Goodman is on the judging panel for both awards.
