MILLWALL boss Kenny Jackett has been shortlisted for the Championship manager of the month award for April.

The Lions won five and drew one last month as they banished fears of relegation and finished the season a respectable 16th in the table.

West Ham's Sam Allardyce and Cardiff manager Malky Mackay are the other nominees.

Elsewhere, keeper Maik Taylor has been shortlisted for the Championship player of the month award.

Taylor, who was yesterday released by Leeds United ahead of his permanent move to Millwall, saved two penalties and kept four clean sheets last month.

Reading striker Adam Le Fondre and West Ham's Ricardo Vaz Te have also been nominated.

The winners are due to be announced on Sky Sports News on Friday morning.
