Jon Harley
He was a clear winner in both and took no less than 42.3% of the vote in the man of the match poll to claim the three points. Lagging way behind in second place was James O'Connor, the winner of the two previous man of the match polls for the games against Sheffield Wednesday and Bristol City.

O'Connor, who polled 15.4%, has returned to the side recently because of injuries and more so suspensions and has certainly made his mark, whilst the player very much in form Wade Elliott was in third place with 9.2% of the vote.

The player ratings were as low as we've seen all season with not one single player receiving a rating of six. It was the same three players at the top as in the man of the match poll and again Harley won it with an average rating of 5.92 out of 10. Elliott took second place with a rating of 5.23 to take the two points whilst O'Connor came in third with a rating of 5.15 out of 10.

That gives Harley six points, with both Elliott and O'Connor picking up three points. The points have seen both O'Connor and Harley move up the Player of the Year Table and for Elliott, his points take him to joint second and only one point now separates the top four.
