Vote: EFL Goals of the Month

7 September 2018

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

Harvey Barnes – WEST BROMWICH ALBION v Bolton Wanderers – 4 August

There was no danger when Albion debutant Barnes collected the ball by the touchline. He sauntered past two opponents and spun an unerring left-foot curler into the far corner.

Ollie Watkins – Stoke City v BRENTFORD – 11 August

What made this goal special was how Watkins adjusted instantly to a poor first touch, instinctively played a one-two with Neal Maupay and then timed his low shot to perfection.

Barry Bannan – SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY v Millwall – 22 August

No matter that defenders were rushing towards Bannan as the ball dropped, he was going to take his time. The languid swish of his left boot belied the sweetest timing on his volley.

Luke O’Neill – GILLINGHAM v Burton Albion – 11 August

What did you do this summer? O’Neill practised his free-kicks and demonstrated that practice makes a perfect dead ball as he clipped his effort in off the underside of the bar.
Siriki Dembele – PETERBOROUGH UNITED v Luton Town – 18 August

The Luton defence looked to have stopped Dembele’s surging run by bringing him down. They reckoned without his ability to play the ball on the floor, get up and scoop it home.

Dimitri Cavare – Scunthorpe United v BARNSLEY – 25 August

Even with his own teammates in the way, Cavare knew what he wanted to do, swerving around them before planting a thunderous drive past Scunthorpe keeper Rory Watson.

James Norwood – TRANMERE ROVERS v Cheltenham Town – 4 August

What a way to re-introduce Sky Bet EFL football to Prenton Park. Norwood timed his run to a bouncing ball as impeccably as his thunderous volley which flew in from 20 yards.

Michael Timlin – STEVENAGE v Morecambe – 11 August

When a finish is as unhurried as this one, it turns into an art form. It was as if Timlin was waiting for someone to pass him the ball in order to send in a deliciously cultured curler.

Lee Frecklington – LINCOLN CITY v Notts County – 25 August

The messiness of the build-up was swept away in an instant by the sheer audacity of Frecklington, who fused accuracy with power to guide his volley into the far top corner.
