City duo up for awards

Leicester City midfielder Richie Wellens has been shortlisted for January's nPower Football League Championship Player of the Month award after a string of excellent performances that saw the Foxes through January without a defeat.

Manager Sven Goran Eriksson is also shortlisted for the Manager of the Month award against Billy Davies at Forest, Millwall's Kenny Jackett and Brian McDermott at Reading.

Wellens faces stiff competition from Shane Long of Reading, Doncaster Rovers' Billy Sharp and Swansea City's Scott Sinclair.

The winners will be announced next Thursday.
