Le Fondre â€“ who is often used as a super-sub by the relegation-threatened Royals â€“ scored five times to boost his sideâ€™s survival hopes.
He said: â€śItâ€™s fantastic to win the award, Iâ€™m buzzing for myself and the rest of the team.
â€śI want to keep this scoring run going right through until the end of the season. Hopefully we can stay up.â€ť
Reading boss Brian McDermott also won the Barclays Manager of the Month award after leading his team to nine points out of a possible 12 last month.
