Gareth wins award

Gareth Bale has been named EON Player of the Round by the FA for his performances in our FA Cup fifth round encounters with Bolton.

The in-form Welsh full-back set-up Jermain Defoe's equaliser at the Reebok Stadium in the initial tie on February 14 and shone again in the replay when another raid down the left flank led to our third goal in the 4-0 win.

Gareth polled an impressive 61 per cent of the votes with Crystal Palace's Darren Ambrose in second place.

Bolton goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen, Pompey's David James and Gareth's Spurs team-mate Jamie O'Hara, on loan at Pompey, also on the shortlist.
