Goal of the Month: November nominations

10 December 2021

The November nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month Award are:

Rhian Brewster – Blackburn Rovers v SHEFFIELD UNITED – 6th November

Brewster, a £23.5m buy, hadn’t scored in 35 league games for the Blades. He would have taken a tap-in. Instead, he made the net bulge with a blistering thigh-high volley on the run.

Philip Zinckernagel – Reading v NOTTINGHAM FOREST – 20th November

The Dane took five Reading players out of the game as he collected the ball, played a quick one-two, then slalomed his way towards goal before arrowing his shot into the bottom corner.

Andre Gray – Derby County v QUEENS PARK RANGERS – 29th November 

Last-gasp winners don’t come any sweeter. It seemed the post had denied QPR until Gray, his back to goal, controlled the ball, touched it on, then volleyed home in one beguiling blur.

The November nominations for the Sky Bet League One Goal of the Month Award are:

Ben Worman – Morecambe v CAMBRIDGE UNITED – 2nd November

In just his second EFL start, the 20-year-old scored his first EFL goal. Will he ever better a hooked control with his left foot beautifully setting up a scorching volley from 20 yards?

Cole Stockton – Fleetwood Town v MORECAMBE – 20th November

Outrageous. Daring. Technical perfection. Stockton added to his career year, turning in his own half and raking a 90th-minute shot so powerfully, it dropped under the bar for the winner.

Bersant Celina – IPSWICH TOWN v Crewe Alexandra – 28th November

Celina’s effortless control on the run of a dropping ball alone had the Ipswich fans catching their breath. His instant, perfectly-flighted chip into the far top corner took it away altogether.

The November nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month Award are:

Jamie Bowden – Exeter City v OLDHAM ATHLETIC – 13th November

Taking his shot early helped, but it was the combination of pace, swerve and dip that gave Bowden’s 20-yarder the disguise it needed to deceive Exeter keeper Cameron Dawson.

Harry Smith – LEYTON ORIENT v Sutton United – 20th November

At 6ft 5in, Smith is known better for his prowess in the air rather than his volleying technique. That may need revising after catching this stunner beautifully on his left instep as it dropped.

Omar Bugiel – SUTTON UNITED v Mansfield Town – 23rd November

After feinting to take the ball left, then going right instead and unleashing a scorcher into the top corner, Bugiel stood still, as if he couldn’t believe what he had just done. Then he could.

Voting is open from 10am on the EFL's official Twitter accounts. Voting closes on Monday 13 December. All winners will be announced on Friday 17 December.
