Seven players are in contention for November's Premier League 2 Player of the Month award.
Nominees were selected by the Premier League Football Development Panel after PL2 club coaches picked out the best performance by an opposing player in each of their league matches during the month.
The 18-year-old forward was a key figure as Brighton & Hove Albion scored seven goals in two Division 1 matches in November, finding the net once in a 4-1 win at Southampton before getting a goal and an assist in the 5-3 defeat by Liverpool. He was also on the scoresheet in the Seagulls' EFL Trophy draw at Leyton Orient.
West Ham United picked up back-to-back Division 2 victories in November to take their winning streak in the league to seven. The 19-year-old Brazilian provided an assist and earned a clean sheet in the leaders' defence in the 4-0 success against Aston Villa, and also played 90 minutes in the 4-2 win at Swansea City.
The 20-year-old forward scored twice in November as Leicester City recorded consecutive wins to move up to fourth place in Division 1. His goals came in a 2-0 win at Manchester City and a 4-1 triumph against Derby County. He also scored in the 2-1 EFL Trophy victory at Sunderland.
Holland was integral to West Ham's six-match winning run in Division 2. The 21-year-old winger scored three goals and provided two assists during the month to put the Hammers three points clear at the top of the table.
Manchester United won both Division 2 matches in November to keep the pressure on West Ham, with Martinez providing two goals and an assist. The 18-year-old Spaniard set up the final goal in a 3-0 success over Sunderland before scoring twice in a 4-1 win at Middlesbrough.
Soule found the net in each of his two PL2 appearances last month, as West Bromwich Albion moved up to third in Division 2. The 19-year-old forward struck once apiece in victories over Stoke City and Middlesbrough.
Thomas, 22, joins team-mate Hirst on the shortlist after also scoring in both of the Foxes' Division 1 wins in November. The attacking midfielder netted the opener at Man City before providing a goal and an assist versus Derby.
