The January nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month Award are:

Tom Lawrence (Ipswich Town) – midfielder
Given the freedom to roam, he scored four and set up the other of Ipswich`s five goals. And what goals they were. His silky effort at Preston topped even the long-range strikes against Blackburn and QPR in his personal goal of the month competition.

Joe Ralls (Cardiff City) – midfielder
The 23-year-old is fast becoming his side`s midfield general. His work ethic and enthusiasm are infectious while he relishes a tackle. His stamina is impressive, too, while his two goals in the month included the winner against Aston Villa.

David Stockdale (Brighton & Hove Albion) – goalkeeper
A second successive nomination for Stockdale whose agility and reactions proved vital in all three of Brighton`s wins. Busy against Cardiff, a penalty save at Fulham was bettered by his remarkable penalty double save against Sheffield Wednesday.

Chris Wood (Leeds United) – striker
Six goals in four games for the frontman who has become the symbol of his club`s on-field renaissance. Showed variety in his finishing with tap-ins, towering headers and a beautiful chest control and volley against Rotherham.

Winners will be announced on Friday 10th February 2017.
