The midfielder's performances in November have been recognised by supporters.
The 20-year-old was among 12 players included on the short-list for the division - including former teammate Ross McCormack - but is now only competing with Derby County's Andreas Weimann and Lucas Joao of Sheffield Wednesday for the award, before the winner is announced on December 8th.
Despite United struggling for form in the Championship for much of the campaign, Mowatt was a driving force behind a brief upturn which saw the Whites claim back-to-back victories.
His stunning second-half strike against Cardiff City provided Leeds with their first - and only - win at Elland Road this season, before perhaps scoring an even better goal that clinched their Yorkshire derby with Huddersfield Town.
And there is little question that if Steve Evans' side wish to pull themselves away from potentially being dragged into a relegation fight, it will be crucial that some of the other key players in the squad discover the form that Mowatt found in November.
