Hatters boss Nathan Jones and midfielder Allan Campbell have been nominated for Sky Bet Championship Manager and Player of the Month for February!
The Town’s impressive league form has led to the manager being nominated for the second successive month after his side earned 15 points from a possible 18 across February.
It all started with an impressive 1-0 away win against Swansea City and continued with victory against Barnsley. After a disappointing defeat against Birmingham City, the Hatters won three games in a week for the first time since 1996 at Championship level, beating West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and Derby County.
Jones is in contention for the award alongside Carlos Corberan of Huddersfield Town, Bournemouth’s Scott Parker and Millwall’s Gary Rowett.
Meanwhile Campbell is in the mix for the player award after scoring two goals and playing every minute in the February league fixtures.
The Scotsman scored the opening goal against Barnsley, before winning the clubs’ Goal of the Month award for his spectacular effort versus West Brom in the 2-0 win.
This is what the league sponsors had to say about the contenders for the respective awards in the official announcement, with the winner due to be announced tomorrow morning…
Nathan Jones (Luton Town)
There is an insistent rhythm about Luton’s season with absolute belief and trust in their manager’s methods underpinning five wins from six February games and lifting the happy Hatters into the play-off places at month’s end.
Allan Campbell (Luton Town) - midfielder
The all-action heartbeat of a Luton side that defies budgets and reputations alike. Campbell’s energy and poise in possession drove the Hatters to five wins, while he added two goals, including a dazzling strike against West Brom.
