Queens Park Rangers midfielder Massimo Luongo has capped off a terrific season by claiming the club's Supporters' Player of the Year award.
The key Caltex Socceroo earned the accolade after appearing in 39 matches in all competitions, scoring six goals and providing three assists.
His performances helped steer the London outfit away from danger in the highly-competitive Championship.
Luongo, who signed from Swindon Town in 2015, has captained the Rs on occasion and could take the armband on a permanent basis from next season, with current skipper Nedum Onuoha announcing his intention to leave.
QPR host Birmingham in the first of their final two league fixtures late Saturday night (AEST).
Luongo will sit out both matches after manager Ian Holloway opted to give the 25-year-old a rest ahead of the FIFA World Cup.
He won his 34th cap against Colombia in March and is expected to be part of the Australia squad that will compete at Russia 2018.
