Robins fans can now vote for their November Autovillage Player of the Month on social media.

Every month this season Robins fans will be able to choose who they think has impressed the most out on the pitch from a selected shortlist, with the award sponsored by our close friends at Autovillage. 

The candidiates for November are: 

  •  Alex Addai 
  •  Conor Thomas
  •  Seàn Long
  •  Scott Flinders

Cheltenham played four League Two matches and the same amount in cup competitions in a busy period for Michael Duff's side.

Alex Addai enjoyed a very good month, particularly in cup competitions, scoring three times as he gradually moved from an impact substitute to a starter for the Robins. 

Addai's 93rd minute equaliser helped the club force an FA Cup replay with Swindon Town after seemingly being set to lose a first round tie at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, firing in almost straight from the restart after the visitors took a stoppage time lead. 

The pacey forward scored in back to back matches, netting at the second attempt after seeing a penalty saved against Newport County in the Trophy, also assisting Max Sheaf in the same game. 

A superb performance in the replay against Swindon followed, as the 25-year-old scored a fine individual goal to send Cheltenham through to the second round, where they eventually bowed out to Port Vale. 

Versatile midfielder Conor Thomas also enjoyed a solid month appearing both in midfield and at right-wing-back, covering a lot of ground in two demanding areas of the pitch. 

After coming close to finding the back of the net with late efforts against Swindon and Exeter City, the 26-year-old tucked away his third goal of the season from the penalty spot against Colchester United. 

Thomas maintained his perfect record of eight succesful penalties taken in open play for the club since joining last summer. 

Right-wing-back Seàn Long missed a couple of matches through injury but made a positive impact as part of a back five that kept three clean sheets in not conceding away from home all month.

His dangerous crosses created many opportunities for his attacking teammates, the Irishman also netted with a header in the 11-goal thriller against Newport, going on to win the penalty against Port Vale in the FA Cup too. 

Goalkeeper Scott Flinders was another key figure in the solid defensive showings away from home, standing out in two fixtures on the road especially.

Making a few fine saves against Swindon at home, he replicated that display in the replay in Wiltshire, saving an early penalty and keeping Richie Wellens' side out for the 86 minutes that followed. 

Flinders was also in fine form at Grimsby Town, keeping the Mariners at bay with several good saves.
