Watford defender Craig Cathcart has been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month award.

The centre-back scored the winning goal in the Hornets' opening fixture of the campaign against Middlesbrough, while the team did not concede a single goal during the three games they played in the first month of the season.

Cathcart played every minute of those three matches.
