The Leasing.com Trophy Player of the Round competition gives fans the opportunity to vote for the player they feel starred in each round of the competition.
The nominations for the Player of the Round for Round Three are as follows:
Padraig Amond (Newport County)
Back to scoring ways in cup competitions, the Irishman led the Newport line with his usual dynamic presence in County’s 3-0 victory over MK Dons. He drove home a stunning free-kick and then his flicked near-post header forced Dons’ Matt Sorinola to turn the ball over his own line.
Joe Bursik (Accrington Stanley)
With two minutes left and Accrington trailing Fleetwood 2-1, Bursik spread himself superbly to deny Paddy Madden the clinching goal. Within 60 seconds, Stanley had taken the match to penalties with an equaliser. Bursik then stepped up to calmly slot home a spot-kick.
Danny Lloyd (Salford City)
A constant menace down the left wing as Salford City beat Port Vale 3-0. He beat his man on the outside on numerous occasions and was involved in two of his side’s goals, winning the corner for the opener and setting Jake Jervis free with a fine pass for the third.
Craig Mackail-Smith (Stevenage)
Handed a fresh lease of life by new manager Graham Westley, the veteran led the line superbly in the 1-0 victory at Bristol Rovers. Didn’t stop working and running all night, never more so than when he chased down a poor Rovers pass to calmly lob home the winning goal.
Kevin van Veen (Scunthorpe United)
The only player to score two goals in Round Three, Van Veen added an assist for good measure. And what goals they were – a cut inside and unerring strike into the far corner for the first, followed by a spectacular improvised volley from 20 yards as Scunthorpe beat Manchester City U21s 3-1.
