Jake: ‘thanks to all who participate’. Click this image to see all of this seaon’s interviews

With nominations about to close in Salut! Sunderland’s annual HAWAY awards – the prizes offered for best interviews with opposing fans over the season just ended – there is a clear front runner.

Since judging is not quite complete, and readers may still take part as previously invited simply by adding their choices in order of first-second-third in the Comments below, it would be premature to give away more.

Nominations close at midnight UK time so there is not much time left for stragglers, and we do have a quorum with votes already cast by several contributors.

In alphabetical order, then, the entries attracting support from our judges are from fans of the following Championship sides:

* Bolton Wanderers

* Brentford

* Bristol City

* Burton Albion

* Derby County (votes for each of the season’s two interviews)

* Hull City (same here; both interviews gaining votes)

* Leeds United

* PNE

* QPR

* Wolverhampton Wanderers

One of the judges, Paul Summerside, put it rather nicely: “They are all top quality pieces of work. Hard to pick a winner but the **** one evokes so many memories.”

Each winner, when announced, will receive one of the following prizes offered by our generous sponsors:
