It might have been a bad month for the Royals results-wise, but one man certainly stepped up to the plate and showed he’s adapted to Championship football. Tyler Blackett’s performances throughout February were a mark above what he’d achieved prior in his Reading career, and he’s duly won our Player of the Month award, taking home 59% of your votes. Two man-of-the-match performances certainly helped his cause, as he dominated against Barnsley then showed he could deal with the cream of the crop in a losing effort at Brighton.
Jordan Obita was another to impress in February but he trailed some way behind Blackett, taking second with 22% of your votes. Ali Al Habsi, searching for his second award of the campaign, mopped up the remaining 19%.
Thanks for your votes - see you again at the end of the month...
