Fulham head coach Marco Silva has been shortlisted for the Championship manager of the month award for October.

The Portuguese boss, who won the award in August, bounced back from a dismal defeat at Coventry at the start of the month to led Fulham to four successive victories, including the 7-0 thrashing of Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park. The Whites also beat third-placed West Brom 3-0 and scored thirteen goals whilst conceding just one.

Blackpool boss Neil Critchley, new Swansea supremo Russell Martin and Bournemouth’s Scott Parker have been nominated alongside Silva. The EFL will announce the winner tomorrow.
