Some magical strikes lit up the latest weekend of EFL fixtures, including a number of fine free-kicks. However, only one of them was a divisional Goal of the Weekend winner…
Paul Coutts: Sheffield United 2-1 Reading
Instinctively reacting as the ball fell to him on the edge of the box, Coutts sent an inch-perfect strike with his weaker foot flying beyond the Royals’ goalkeeper.
Matt Grimes: Northampton Town 2-1 Gillingham
There were several free-kicks which found the net, but none quite had the precision of Grimes’ match-winning strike, which struck both posts before nestling into the net.
Simeon Akinola: Barnet 1-1 Yeovil Town
The forward made an early impact in this game, picking the ball out on the left, stepping inside and curling a precise strike inside the far post.
