McCann And Magennis Receive April Nominations

5 May 2021

Grant McCann and Josh Magennis have been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Manager and Player of the Month awards for April.

The Tigers accumulated 16 points from a possible 18, scoring an impressive 14 goals, and secured an immediate return to the Championship with a 2-1 victory at Lincoln.

Northern Ireland international Magennis scored the opening goal in that promotion-clinching win, finishing the month with six goals in as many matches.

The experienced forward also netted in victories over Crewe, Plymouth and Fleetwood, while he notched a brace in the draw with Sunderland and provided an assist against Northampton.

McCann, who has been shortlisted for the monthly award five times this season, is up against Lincoln’s Michael Appleton, Wigan’s Leam Richardson and AFC Wimbledon’s Mark Robinson.

The four-man player shortlist is completed by Blackpool defender Dan Ballard, Oxford full-back Sam Long and Burton midfielder Joe Powell.

The winners will be announced at 6am on Friday morning.
