The April nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month Award are...
Tom Lawrence – Reading v DERBY COUNTY – 5th April
With his relegation-threatened side trailing 2-0 and in desperate need of inspiration, Lawrence took it upon himself to stride forward and unleash a stunning 30-yarder into the far top corner.
Arnaut Danjuma – Norwich City v BOURNEMOUTH – 17th April
Not content with dancing along the touchline, dragging the ball past two defenders and then slicing infield, the Dutchman cut a perfectly struck shot back against his direction of travel.
Rob Dickie – Middlesbrough v QUEENS PARK RANGERS – 17th April
Central defenders aren’t supposed to do this. As impressive as his long-range piledriver was, which was still rising as it struck the net, Dickie’s nonchalant celebration was even better.
The April nominations for the Sky Bet League One Goal of the Month Award are...
Callum Elder – HULL CITY v Northampton Town – 5th April
Elder didn’t try to complicate matters when the ball was laid back into his path as he neared the area. A simple swish of his left instep and the ball was swept swiftly into the top corner.
Joe Powell – Portsmouth v BURTON ALBION – 10th April
Befitting a player schooled at West Ham, Powell’s technique was exemplary. As the free-kick was rolled to him, he speared a shot that flew true at waist height throughout its trajectory.
Sullay Kaikai – Sunderland v BLACKPOOL – 27th April
Even in slow motion, Kaikai’s stunning winner is a blur. It’s not as if the ball came slowly towards him. The sweetness of the strike had heads turning instantly in the Sunderland area.
The April nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month Award are...
Callum Wright – CHELTENHAM TOWN v Tranmere Rovers – 2nd April
The on-loan Leicester midfielder simply stood and delivered as two headers sent the ball dropping to him on the edge of the area. His volley looked as effortless as it was magical.
Emmanuel Osadebe – WALSALL v Tranmere Rovers – 13th April
Osadebe combined balletic balance as he dummied a defender and a hammerhead of a right foot shot with wicked curve and dip as his 20-yard effort flew in off the underside of the bar.
Tom Conlon – Barrow v PORT VALE – 20th April
Wow. When Barrow keeper Joel Dixon launched a goal-kick, the last thing he expected was Conlon seizing his chance to arc an audaciously looped volley over him from the halfway line.
