The Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round competition gives fans the opportunity to vote for the player they feel starred in the first round of fixtures.
An independent football expert selected the five worthy players that make up the shortlist and now supporters have the chance to vote for the final two via EFL.com.
The two players with the most votes will then be considered by a judging panel consisting of representatives from the EFL, before the overall winner is revealed.
Every fan who votes will be entered into a prize draw, with one lucky supporter getting the chance to present the Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round award to the winning player and win tickets to the final of the competition at Wembley in April.
