Also short-listed for the January award were Geraint Williams of Leyton Orient, Kenny Jackett of Millwall and Swindon Town's Danny Wilson.

Alan Curbishley, chairman of the awards panel, said: "Paul Lambert continues to steer Norwich City back towards the Coca-Cola Championship at the first attempt. Eleven straight home wins is a club record and things are certainly going superbly well for both Paul and the club."
