The voting for the second SBOBET Player of the Month award of 2013 is now open. Joe Cole collected January's accolade for an excellent first month back in Hammers colours.

The former Liverpool man features in the nominations once more and is joined by fellow creator Matt Jarvis. Fit-again striker Andy Carroll is also among the nominees, while goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen is up for the award too. Defenders Joey O'Brien and Winston Reid complete the line-up..

February began in fine fashion, with the Hammers securing a much-needed Barclays Premier League win over Swansea City.

Carroll scored the only goal of the game, rising majestically to nod Mark Noble's corner into the Boleyn Ground net.

However, Sam Allardyce's men were unable to build on that result the following week as they travelled to Aston Villa and came away on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline. Joe Cole created the Hammers' goal that day, sending over the cross which Ashley Westwood inadvertedly flicked past his own keeper.

With only three games in the month, February closed with a pulsating London derby against Tottenham Hotspur, settled by Gareth Bale's last minute scorcher.

West Ham had earlier battled back from falling 1-0 down to lead through Carroll and Joe Cole, and despite a string of fine saves from Jaaskelainen, the visitors found two late goals to break Hammers hearts.
