Albion's manager and winger have been nominated for April's awards.
Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton and winger Anthony Knockaert have been nominated for April’s Sky Bet Football League Championship Manager and Player of the Month Awards respectively.
Albion won five out of their six games in April, which included the emphatic 5-0 and 4-0 victories over Fulham and Queens Park Rangers at the Amex.
Those five wins, along with Bank Holiday Monday’s draw with Derby, have seen the Seagulls take the race for automatic promotion into the final day of the season, against Middlesbrough.

Knockaert’s form has been a key factor in Albion’s current 13-match unbeaten run and he has made an impressive start to life at the club since arriving from Standard Liege in January, scoring five goals in 18 appearances, which includes the matches against Fulham and QPR.
Hughton faces stiff competition for his award from Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka, Brentford boss Dean Smith and Neil Warnock at Rotherham United.
Knockaert is up against Michael Keane at Burnley, Scott Hogan at Brentford and Johnny Russell at Derby.
The duo will find out whether or not they have been successful on Friday.
