Norwich City captain Grant Hanley and head coach Daniel Farke have both been nominated for the Championship’s monthly awards for November. 

Farke is nominated for Manager of the Month for the second successive month having led the Canaries to the top of the Championship despite an injury crisis. 

City took 11 points from a possible 15 last month, including wins at Middlesbrough and Stoke, alongside a 1-0 win over Swansea and draws with Millwall and Coventry at Carrow Road. 

The 44-year-old faces competition from Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray, Bristol City manager Dean Holden and Watford chief Vladimir Ivic. 

Farke has only won the award once since arriving in England in 2017, which was for the Canaries’ form in November 2018, during a season which would end with the German lifting the Championship trophy.
