Vote: EFL Goals of Month - October

23 November 2018

The nominees for October Sky Bet Goal of the Month - find out who is in the running for each division...

Adam Reach – SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY v West Bromwich Albion – 3rd October

It wouldn’t be a Goal of the Month competition without him. Simplicity, power and accuracy combined in a flash of his left foot which arrowed the ball unerringly into the far top corner. 

Harvey Barnes – Sheffield Wednesday v WEST BROMWICH ALBION – 3rd October

With defenders swarming around him, Barnes picked up the ball on halfway, drove forward, dribbled into the area, cut inside and finished cutely, leaving them all flailing in his wake.

Sergi Canos – Preston North End v BRENTFORD – 24th October

Pace terrifies defenders, yet Canos knew exactly when to break his run, jink inside and leave Preston’s Chris Maxwell grasping at thin air with a shot that took the breath away.

Tom Eaves – Portsmouth v GILLINGHAM – 6th October 

Back to goal with a header dropping towards him, Eaves cushioned the ball with his left foot, looped it up with his right, then swivelled to flash home a left-foot volley. Samba style.

Mamadou Thiam – BARNSLEY v Luton Town – 13th October

Loitering with intent to pounce just outside the area, Thiam seized the moment to intercept a clearance, take two touches towards goal and whip a sweet shot into the far corner.

Chris Maguire – SUNDERLAND v Southend United – 27th October

A second straight nomination for Maguire. As he intercepted a pass in midfield and strode forward into space to shoot, the only question was which top corner he would choose.

Nicky Maynard – BURY v Mansfield Town – 6th October 

The secret of the best scissor kicks is the timing. Maynard had his down to perfection as he stopped his run, adjusted his feet and soared to meet the ball as it dropped into his arc.

Matthew Dolan – NEWPORT COUNTY v Stevenage – 13th October

Off balance as he won the ball in midfield, Dolan took the return from Tyreeq Bakinson and righted himself just in time to pummel home a first-minute, thigh-high dipper from 25 yards.

Jordan Bowery – Stevenage v CREWE ALEXANDRA – 20th October

No easy way out taken here. Bowery clearly didn’t fancy an old-fashioned belter, opting instead to bend the ball exquisitely with the outside of his right foot and inside the far post.
