Hunt has been in fine form for Reading this season

Reading midfielder Stephen Hunt has been named the Championship's player of the month for December.

Hunt's good form has helped the Royals climb to second in the table, just four points behind leaders Wolves.

Reading chalked up five straight wins, and Hunt netted his eighth goal of the season in the victory against Norwich.

Leicester City striker Matty Fryatt was named League One's player of the month and in League Two, the award went to Brentford midfielder Marcus Bean.

Hunt claimed his award ahead of Cardiff's Jay Bothroyd, Crystal Palace's Patrick McCarthy and Swansea's Jason Scotland.

The other contenders for Fryatt's League One honour were Huddersfield's Gary Roberts, Peterborough's Aaron McLean and Tranmere's Antony Kay.

Meanwhile, Bean was chosen in League Two ahead of Aldershot's Kirk Hudson, Dagenham & Redbridge's Paul Benson and former Macclesfield striker Martin Gritton, who has subsequently joined Chesterfield.
