Nottingham Forest midfielder Kris Commons has been named the FA Cup "Player of the Round" for his hat-trick in the first round against Yeading.

Commons, 23, becomes the first player to win the award in separate seasons after winning in March 2005 for his fifth-round display at Tottenham.

The four other players nominated were Francisco Ramos, Matt Tubbs, Michael Frew and Michael Rankine.

Commons joins the four previous winners in this season's "Team of the FA Cup".

He will also receive a VIP invitation to the 2007 FA Cup final.

In addition, the winner in each round will be given an engraved silver salver, and 500 worth of football equipment for a local school of his choice.

The "Team of the FA Cup" so far comprises Matt Lewis (Halesowen Town), Gary McPhee (Nuneaton Borough), Byron Bubb (AFC Wimbledon), Paul Booth (Lewes) and Commons.

Fans can vote for the player of their choice on the Football Association's official website.
