Reading FC's Player of the Month - March 2013

Given that we've introduced player ratings recently, it gives us a good way to put forward nominees for a player of the month. So, based on our player ratings here's our top four contenders for player of the month for you to vote on in our poll.

Jamie McDonald

Hal Robson-Kanu: Games: 4 Goals: 2 Average rating: 6.75/10

Robson-Kanu was the only Reading player to find the net in March, with late headers at the Emirates and at Goodison Park. In general, HRK had a pretty good month, with a solid display at Old Trafford and getting into some good positions against Villa. Sadly if he'd converted one of two good chances against Villa, maybe Brian McDermott is still in a job.

Adrian Mariappa: Games: 4 Goals: 0 Average rating: 6.25/10

Mariappa continues to impress in a Reading backline that's constantly under fire and his only real error was giving away a penalty at the Emirates. He looks future captain material and here's hoping we can hang onto him no matter our fate come the end of the season.

Stuart Taylor: Games 4: Clean Sheets: 0 Average rating: 6.25/10

Solid yet unspectacular month from our third-choice keeper who can't be faulted for our recent woes. His only poor game came at Arsenal when he should probably have had a penalty given against him and a slightly soft third goal. With Federici and McCarthy back to fitness we might have seen the last of Taylor but he can hold his head high after a solid month.

Alex Pearce: Games: 4 Goals: 0 Average rating: 6/10

Another solid month for Pearce who may be entering his final few games as a Reading player. You know exactly what you're going to get from the Republic of Ireland international and while he didn't look totally comfortable with a more passing orientated brief last weekend, he's still shown his potential at this level.

So those are the four leading contenders. Please give us your votes in the poll below or if you think someone else deserved a nod, please let us know in the comments below.
