It’s not surprising that Brighton manager Chris Hughton has been named the Championship manager of the month for December with four wins and a draw in the five games played last month.
Brighton beat QPR, Blackburn Rovers, Leeds United and Birmingham City and drew at Cardiff City.
In December Newcastle had six games and we won four and lost two at Nottingham Forest and at home to Sheffield Wednesday.
13 points from 15 in December! ???
