11 April 2019

Jack O'Connell is in contention to be named Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for March.

The powerful defender was in fine form last month, scoring once and helping United keep four clean sheets, picking up 10 points in the process.

The other nominees are as follows...

Semi Ajayi (Rotherham United)
Ajayi's power and will to win were always suited to the transition from central defence to midfield. Less predictable were five goals in five games, three courtesy of prodigious leaps and flying headers, two immaculately timed low shots.

Emiliano Buendia (Norwich City)
Has blossomed since the turn of the year. Imaginative and daring with his passes, the Argentine scored three goals, including a stunning strike on the run for the winner against Swansea, and set up two more in March.

Pablo Hernandez (Leeds United)
A consistent contributor all season, the Spaniard was exceptional in March. Silky smooth when running with the ball and a superb timer of shots, he scored five goals from a wide position and also set up two for teammates.

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports' EFL expert Don Goodman; League Managers' Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet EFL Trader Ivor Davies.

All winners will be announced on Friday 12th April 2019.
