Vincent Kompany, Michael Carrick and Mark Robins nominated for Championship Manager of the Season at 2023 EFL Awards

Vincent Kompany (Burnley), Michael Carrick (Middlesbrough), and Mark Robins (Coventry City) are nominees for the Championship Manager of the Season award at the 2023 EFL Awards.

They will announce the winners at an event in London on April 23 as another exciting campaign heads down the final stretch.

Kompany heads the shortlist and is the favourite for the award. The Clarets have already secured promotion despite having six games left.

Burnley can secure a remarkable 100 points before the end of the season.

If they win their remaining six games, they can break Reading’s record of 106 Championship points from the 2005/06 campaign.

Kompany has done a remarkable job, with the club relegated from the Premier League only 12 months ago.

Former England international Michael Carrick has also done a similarly excellent job at Middlesbrough.

When he took his first permanent managerial job in October, Middlesbrough were just a point above the relegation zone.

They are now in a play-off place and have pushed Sheffield United for automatic promotion.

Robins has Coventry fighting for a play-off spot with a handful of games left. Their 2-2 draw with Watford on Easter Monday left them three points off sixth place.

The same clubs produced the players nominated for the Championship Player of the Season award.

Burnley’s Josh Brownhill is a nominee after bagging six goals and eight assists.

Chuba Akpom is also on the list after netting 26 goals, while Coventry striker Viktor Gyokeres is another candidate after scoring 18 goals.

Kieran McKenna (Ipswich Town), Steven Schumacher (Plymouth Argyle) and Darren Moore (Sheffield Wednesday) are up for the League One Manager of the Season award.

Barry Bannan (Sheffield Wednesday), Aaron Collins (Bristol Rovers), and Jonson Clarke-Harris (Peterborough United) are the nominees for the division’s best player.
