Potter and James nominated for EFL awards

Graham Potter and Daniel James have been nominated for the Sky Bet EFL Manager and Player of the Month awards for April.

Potter is nominated after the Swans took 16 points from a possible 21 last month, racking up five wins from seven games including impressive home victories over Brentford, Middlesbrough and Stoke.

It was enough to get them into late contention for a play-off spot until the draw with Hull last weekend, with the Swans also scoring 16 goals during the month.

The Swans boss is nominated alongside Wigan manager Paul Cook, Aston Villa's Dean Smith and Sheffield United's Chris Wilder.

Winger James also enjoyed an outstanding month for the Swans.

The Wales international scored two goals and registered five assists, as his sizzling pace and eye for goal continued to cause Championship defences all manner of problems.

The 21-year-old is joined among the nominees by West Brom striker Dwight Gayle, Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and Derby full-back Jayden Bogle.
