There was an audible gasp when Lawrence picked the ball up on the left, jinked between two defenders and lifted his curling shot into the far corner.

Ben Osborn (Nottingham Forest) v Bristol City – 21st January

Matthew Cash tapped back a free-kick, Osborn flicked it up with his left foot, then used it again to unleash a dipping 25-yard dipping volley over the wall.  .

Collecting the ball outside the box, Aneke played a one-two with Paul Downing, strode on to the return pass and walloped a rasping drive into the top corner.

Josh Morris (Scunthorpe United) v Northampton Town – 14th January

On a Scunthorpe counter-attack, Morris knew exactly what to do. He picked up the ball in space, slipped it on to his left foot and curled home an unstoppable shot.

Gregg Wylde (Northampton Town) v MK Dons – 21st January

A case of adjusting your body to a dropping ball. A Northampton free-kick was cleared to Wylde, who chested it down beautifully before timing a sweet half-volley.

Sky Bet League Two - January Goal of the Month nominations:

Dan Butler (Newport County) v Hartlepool United – 28th January

Bouncing balls on muddy pitches are notoriously difficult to judge. Butler did it perfectly, steadying himself to loop his shot effortlessly over a forest of bodies.

Gavin Massey (Leyton Orient) v Portsmouth – 14th January

A game of head tennis ended when Nigel Atangana laid the ball off on the edge of the box for Massey to whip a majestic curling shot into the far corner.

Shay McCartan (Accrington Stanley) v Carlisle United – 21st January

Some free-kicks are just unstoppable. The only time McCartan’s stunning 30-yarder was on target was in the final moments of its flight when it dipped wickedly under the bar.
