December winner Shane Long continued his good form into January, playing a crucial role in the side's recent run of three consecutive wins – a sequence that started with the Irishman scoring the opener in a 2-0 win over Watford.
November's award went to Steven Davis, and he's shortlisted once more after losing out to Long last month. The Northern Irishman played a key part in back-to-back home wins over Watford and West Bromwich Albion.
James Ward-Prowse struck twice in that victory over the Baggies and went on to set up Charlie Austin's winner at Manchester United, with his impact enough to earn him a nomination.
The four-man shortlist is completed by young defender Matt Targett, who has flourished on the left of a five-man defence and grabbed assists in those two home victories earlier in the month.
Voting for the award closes at midday on Tuesday 2nd February, with the winner to be announced to Season Ticket holders and Official Members in February's official email newsletter.
