McCarthy and Waghorn Nominated for Awards
Thursday, 7th Sep 2017 06:15
Town boss Mick McCarthy has been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award for August, while summer signing Martyn Waghorn is up for the Player of the Month gong.
The Blues picked up 12 points from 15 in the opening month of the campaign and ended August in second place.
McCarthy, 58, is up against Cardiff manager Neil Warnock, whose side top the division with a 100 per cent record, new Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen, whose team are third and unbeaten a point behind the Blues, and another summer appointee, Nuno Espírito Santo, whose Wolves side are fourth with 10 points.
The Town boss has previously won the award five times, once with Sunderland, twice with Wolves and in September 2014 and November 2015 while with the Blues.
Waghorn, 27, joined Town from Rangers in August and scored four goals in his first three Championship games before drawing a blank in the 2-0 defeat to Fulham in the month’s final match.
The former Rangers striker is up against Cardiff midfielder Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, who also scored four Championship goals in the opening month - plus another in the Carabao Cup - Sheffield United frontman Billy Sharp, who again netted four times and Preston defender Darnell Fisher. The winners of both awards will be announced on Friday morning.

The Opta stat that Town had won more points than any other EFL team from losing positions surprised me somewhat as the view on the TWTD Forum and amongst fans I've spoken to is that when we go behind we lose control a bit and tend towards hoofball.

This one feels different. After nearly eight and a half years of hurt, this one just feels like it may all fall into place for Town. A chance to bury dark memories of Grant Holt, Lewis Grabban, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond, Alex Neil et al.
