The Royals conceded six goals in the two games Hope missed through injury and potential jetlag after a first call-up to the Nigeria squad earlier in the month. He took the MOTM award in the 0-0 draw at Elland Road but couldn't prevent Bournemouth grabbing three in defeat on the South Coast. Has he stood out enough to win your vote?

Comfortably the highest rated Reading player in October, a full 0.6 points ahead of anyone else, largely thanks to the best performance in a Royals shirt this month in defeat at the Goldsands Stadium, where the Aussie stopper prevented the scoreline from becoming even more embarrassing. Are his heroics to be rewarded with October's prize?

Two MOTM awards for Mackie this month as he showed his typical never-say-die attitude across all five matches in October, setting up Cox's goal at Brentford along the way. A willing runner on the right wing, is his passion and energy going to thrust him towards a Player Of The Month gong?
Average rating: 6.00 (4 apps); Man Of The Match awards: 2nd (Derby County H), joint-3rd (Blackpool H)
