The September nominations for the Sky Bet Goal of the Month are:
Diogo Jota: WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS v Millwall – 9th September
Pace and directness terrify defenders. Jota collected a loose ball at speed, drove forward and used the space as defenders backed off to arrow his shot into the net.
Mustapha Carayol: NOTTINGHAM FOREST v Wolverhampton Wanderers – 16th September
Aware that John Ruddy was off his goal-line, Carayol didn’t waste a moment as he jinked inside and sent a perfectly judged, fiercely driven strike beyond the Wolves keeper.
James Maddison: NORWICH CITY v Middlesbrough – 26th September
Collecting a slipped Marley Watkins pass, Maddison knew instantly what to do. A cushioned touch was followed by a classy, arcing 25-yarder into the top corner.
Devante Cole: FLEETWOOD TOWN v Portsmouth – 16th September
It would have been easy for Cole to try to hit Lewie Coyle’s headed knock-down too hard. Instead, he calmly used his in-step to drag his subtle volley into the far corner.
Michael Jacobs: WIGAN ATHLETIC v Northampton Town – 19th September
When the Northampton defenders didn’t close him down, Jacobs strode into space and unleashed a sumptuous 30-yard strike that was still rising when it hit the net.
Tony McMahon: BRADFORD CITY v Northampton Town – 23rd September
The sweet, laconic beauty of this free-kick made it special. With almost no run-up, McMahon timed his clip over the Northampton wall into the top corner to perfection.
Chris Hussey: Swindon Town v Luton Town – 9th September
A strike that owed equal amounts to vision and technique. Striding into the area, Hussey cannily used the outside of his left foot to bend home an unstoppable shot.
Shaun Miller: CARLISLE UNITED v Barnet – 16th September
Poetry in motion as Miller turned a hopeful punt forward into a goal to savour. The key was his volleyed control which gave him the time to judge his hooked overhead exquisitely.
Jayden Stockley: EXETER CITY v Morecambe – 30th September
There seemed little danger when Stockley chested down a throw-in at the by-line. He had other ideas. A clever lobbed flick set him through on goal. His volley did the rest.
