Best Play-Off Final goals #7

11 May 2013

We asked followers of @Football_League to nominate the best ever Play-Off Final goals using the hashtag #PlayOffGoals and we're counting down the top 10 in the build-up to the 2013 npower Football League Play-Off Finals.

You can read the full story in this year's Finals programme.

Number 7: Richard Walker - Bristol Rovers 3-1 Shrewsbury Town, League 2, 2007

After Shrewsbury had taken an early lead, Richard Walker took charge, equalising in the 21st minute before putting his team 2-1 ahead with 10 minutes remaining of the first half.

His second goal was the product of a true striker's instinct as he timed his run to perfection when the ball was played forward down the left and a defender failed to intercept. One touch from Walker steadied himself and, even though he was at a difficult angle, he then applied a delicate finish to send the ball over the advancing Chris MacKenzie.
