Slavisa Jokanovic has been nominated as one of the contenders to be the Championship’s Manager of the Month for December.

The Fulham boss guided his side on a five-match unbeaten run last month, with three wins and two draws before that frustrating abandonment in the fog at Reading. The Whites began December with an impressive 5-0 win over third placed Reading at Craven Cottage, before that crazy 4-4 draw at Molineux against Wolves was secured by a last-gasp header from Floyd Ayite. Jokanovic’s side then saw off plucky Rotherham at the Cottage and ended Derby County’s seven-match winning streak with a 2-2 draw, before beating Ipswich convincingly on Boxing Day.

Fulham’s Serbian head coach is nominated alongside Leeds United manager Garry Monk, the Brighton boss Chris Hughton and German coach David Wagner of Huddersfield Town. A decision will be made a judging panel that includes George Burley and Don Goodman tomorrow.
