Gareth Bale has been nominated for the E.ON Player of the Round award for the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Our Wembley defeat at the hands of Portsmouth may not have been a memorable occasion but the Welshman was one of our outstanding performers on the day.

His familiar surges down the left flank were the basis of most of our attacking play and nearly resulted in an extra-time equaliser when his cross fell to Peter Crouch to ram home.

As we know, the goal was ruled out and Pompey were left celebrating at the final whistle, but did Gareth do enough to earn your vote?

He's up against Pompey heroes David James, Aaron Mokoena and Ricardo Rocha, as well as Chelsea's Didier Drogba, who starred in the Blues' win over Aston Villa in the other semi-final.

Gareth has already picked up one Player of the Round award this season for his Fifth Round performances against Bolton Wanderers.
