Leicester boss and former Wednesday captain Nigel Pearson has been named as the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month for January.

He beat the Owls’ Stuart Gray, QPR’s Harry Redknapp and Forest’s Billy Davies to the title after Leicester won all their five games during the month and went eight points clear at the top.

Reading striker Adam Le Fondre, who faces the Owls tomorrow, has taken the Player of the Month award for his two hat-tricks in successive home games - 7-1 and 5-1 wins against Bolton and Blackpool.

The other contenders were Wednesday’s Chris Kirkland, Doncaster’s Mark Duffy and Leicester’s David Nugent.
