Hornets top scorer Troy Deeney has been nominated for the Championship player of the month award for March.

The 25-year-old netted six goals in six matches last month and bagged braces in the victories against Blackpool and Sheffield Wednesday.

Deeney’s double against the Owls on Saturday saw him become the first Hornets player since Luther Blissett to score 20 goals in consecutive seasons.

Also nominated for the award is Ipswich Town centre-back Christophe Berra, AFC Bournemouth full-back Simon Francis and Ravel Morrison, who is on loan at Queens Park Rangers from West Ham United.

The winner of the award will be announced tomorrow.
