Swansea City's Steve Cooper and Jamal Lowe have been nominated for the Sky Bet EFL Championship manager and player of the month awards respectively.

Head coach Cooper is among the January nominees on the back of a month where the Swans took 10 points from four league games, including a home victory over Watford and a draw with Brentford.

The Welshman is nominated alongside Norwich's Daniel Farke, Blackburn's Tony Mowbray and Reading's Veljko Paunovic.

Jamal Lowe

Lowe, meanwhile, is on the shortlist for the player award after scoring another three goals in four league appearances during January.

The striker bagged a superb brace against Watford, and backed that up with a cool finish in the win at Barnsley.

The other contenders for the award are Rotherham midfielder Matt Crooks, Blackburn midfielder Harvey Elliott and Reading's defensive midfielder Josh Laurent.

The winners of the awards will be announced on Friday, February 12.
