Leroy Player Of The Round?

Leroy Player Of The Round?

Leroy Lita has been nominated for the FA Cup Player of the Round after netting twice against Birmingham in the 4th round.

The ex-England under21 striker has come into great form of recent and has been especially effective in the FA Cup.

Lita has now scored 9 goals in five starts and three featured appearances in England`s most famous cup - a pretty impressive history for the striker.

Lita is rivalled to the spot of Player of the Round by Blackburn`s Matt Derbyshire, Scott Sinclair of Plymouth, Preston`s Dave Nugent and Bristol City`s Jamie McAllister.

If you would like to vote for Lita for the prestigious award go to www.thefa.com

If Leroy wins the award he will join previous and future round winners in the Team of the FA Cup and also -should he not be playing in it!- an invitation to the FA Cup final.

Lita would also bag 500quids worth of sports equipment for the local school of his choice.

Steve Coppell lavished praise on Lita proclaiming that :

"Leroy has been on top of his game. You can see he has a real desire at the moment to do well and score goals.

"He`s been very, very sharp. People think he`s been around for a long time but he hasn`t, 18 months ago he was playing two divisions lower. But in that time he has consistently progressed and scored goals.

"That is what he is - a goalscorer. He has an instinct and an eye for goal. He`s not really a link-up player although that aspect of his game has improved almost week by week.

"He knows that is something he has to develop if he is to improve as a player, but I don`t see it as a priority."

Lita`s form will be imperative with a tough FA Cup tie against Man Utd awaiting the Royals in mid-February.

Reading will travel up to Old Trafford on Saturday the 17th to face the Red Devils; the game will be televised live on BBC with kick off being at 17:15.
