In perhaps the only standout performance this month from any player, Al-Habsi showed every ounce of his experience in a solid display against Bolton, eventually only beaten from the penalty spot. Unfortunately in our last match at Nottingham Forest, he showed those doubters that he does still have a mistake in him. The exceptional and the ridiculous in the space of a month.

Not quite a month to remember for Blackman - certainly not as impressive as the past three anyway - but he's still been one of the most consistent performers in a largely under-par Reading side, and still retains the threat that he could score at any moment.

An ever-present in the midfield in November, Norwood scored the first equaliser at home to Huddersfield with a neat free-kick. Whether teams are becoming more aware of his presence or his passing, not quite the effective force we've seen in recent times but still one of the first players on the team sheet for most Reading fans.
They're your three nominees - we'll reveal the results later this week!
