Best Play-Off Final goals #1

18 May 2013

We asked followers of @Football_League to nominate the best ever Play-Off Final goals using the hashtag #PlayOffGoals and, with the 2013 npower Football League Play-Off Finals now upon us, we can reveal the winning strike.

You can read the full story in this year's Finals programmes, which can be purchased by clicking here.

Number 1: Gary Alexander - Millwall 2-3 Scunthorpe United, League 2, 2009

Millwall were trying to get back into their League 1 Play-Off Final in 2009, after going behind in the sixth minute, when Gary Alexander struck his superb equaliser.

Scunthorpe took a throw deep in their half and it was knocked forward by a Millwall player towards Alexander, who controlled it high on his chest. He spun, 35 yards from goal, only a little way infield, and exploded a cracker-jack of a volley that arrowed over Joe Murphy and flew into the far corner of the net.

Speaking about the wonder strike, Alexander said: "I've scored a few good goals in my career, but probably not as good as this one, that's for sure. Coming at Wembley makes it very special."
