Unsurprisingly, Billy Sharp has been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month award for December.

The Blades skipper netted five times in six games last month, including opening the scoring on three occasions, against Reading, Derby County and Blackburn Rovers.

Sharp scored two headers, including netting the Blades a share of the spoils at Ipswich Town before Christmas.

The other nominees are as follows...

Jarrod Bowen (Hull City)
December was the month in which the 22-year-old rediscovered last season's scoring form with six goals in as many matches, plus an assist. The goals came in braces and showcased his precision shooting after cutting inside.

Kemar Roofe (Leeds United)
His five goals in six games accounted for three wins for Leeds. Most impressively as he continues to evolve as a striker was his ability to find space on the ground and in the air to complete comeback wins over Aston Villa and Blackburn.

Harry Wilson (Derby County)
After sparkling intermittently in the autumn, Wilson was brilliant throughout December, setting up others with his vision and the timing of his passes as well as contributing three goals, including another spectacular free-kick at Sheffield United.

The winner will be announced on Friday 11th January.

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