Nobby's Hammers hat-trick

Kevin Nolan has again been voted as the SBOBET Player of the Month after earning 37.3 per cent of the public vote.

Captain Nolan has already been voted as the SBOBET Player of the Month for August and September and the former Newcastle United man has now got his hat-trick after collecting the October award. His midfield partner Mark Noble finished a close runner-up with 32.7 per cent of the vote after another stellar run of games.

October began with a bang as the Hammers picked up their first away win of the campaign beating QPR 2-1 at Loftus Road. A Boleyn return followed and a shock looked on the cards with Big Sam's side pushing Arsenal every step of the way before losing 3-1 late on.

Following the international break, the Hammers returned to the Boleyn Ground once more to face Southampton, who they put to the sword in a stunning 4-1 win. Runner-up Noble scored twice but it was captain Nolan who sent the Hammers on their way, putting them in front after 48 minutes at the back post.

Winston Reid completed the top three with 13.9 per cent of the vote, followed by Momo Diame in fourth on 10.6 per cent, Jussi Jaaskelainen came fifth on 4.3 per cent and Ricardo Vaz Te wrapped up the voting on 1.2 per cent.

With all still to play for in November it remains to be seen who will be crowed as the next SBOBET Player of the Month, but you would not back against the captain after inspirational displays against Newcastle United and Stoke City already.
