Nigel Worthington's transformation from a man on the edge of a precipice to a man on top of the world was completed today when he was named Coca Cola Championship Manager of the Month for December.

City turned their season around with five wins out of six in the last month of 2005, moving to within striking distance of the play-off spots by beating the likes of Southampton and Sheffield United.

Canaries fans wil now be hoping that Worthington's award does not turn out to be a curse, with the first match of 2006 having ended in defeat, and that the side can kick on towards a promotion challenge.
