PFA Vertu Motors Championship Fans' Player of the Year - 2022/23 nominees


90min is the home of the PFA Vertu Motors Fans’ Player of the Month Award for the 2022/23 season.

Each month, you can vote for your favourite players across five divisions of English football, for the chance to win incredible prizes, including the opportunity to present the award to the winning player.

The Championship campaign is coming to a close, and so it's time to gear up for award season.

Burnley eased their way to the title playing some brilliant football under Vincent Kompany, while the race for the play-offs went down to the last day of the regular season. The battle to avoid the drop saw legendary manager Neil Warnock produce a near miracle to keep Huddersfield in the Championship.

In such a special season, there are a handful of players who have stood out more than most.
