Hornets boss Beppe Sannino has been nominated for the Championship manager for the month award for February.
The Watford head coach guided his side to 11 points from six games last month with wins coming against Brighton & Hove Albion, Birmingham City and Middlesbrough.
The Hornets also kept four clean sheets and claimed an impressive 2-2 draw with league leaders Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
Sannino is up against former Hornets manager Sean Dyche whose Burnley side are challenging for automatic promotion.
Wigan Athletic boss Uwe Rosler and Derby County manager Steve McClaren have also been nominated for the award.
