The in-form Belgian star made it goals in three-successive matches after strikes at Leicester and Palace to help us negotiate a potentially tricky fourth round tie at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
Nacer opened the scoring and then headed us into a 3-0 lead before completing a fine all-round display by setting up Tom Carroll for the fourth goal - all on his 100th appearance for the club in all competitions.
Nacer polled almost 70% of over 12,000 votes cast on Facebook, Twitter and the Match Centre.
