Reading boss Jaap Stam has been named the Sky Bet Championship's Manager of the Month for January.

The Dutchman led the Royals to four wins from their six matches during the month as they continued their push towards promotion.

Reading, who claimed victories over Bristol City, Fulham, Cardiff City and Birmingham City, sit third in the Championship, just five points off the automatic promotion spots.

Leeds United forward Chris Wood picked up the Championship Player of the Month award after continuing his fine goal scoring form into 2017.

Wood netted six times in January to take his tally for the season to 21 goals in all competitions, helping Leeds consolidate their position in the play-off positions.

Garry Monk's men sit in fifth spot and have a seven-point cushion between themselves and seventh-placed Norwich City.
