Goal of the Month: October nominations

19 November 2021

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

Lys Mousset – SHEFFIELD UNITED v Stoke City – 16th October 

Substitutes bring fresh ideas and fresh impetus. A slick Blades break saw David McGoldrick slip a pass to Billy Sharp, collect a reversed return, then slide in Mousset, to side-foot home. 

Ilias Chair – QUEENS PARK RANGERS v Blackburn Rovers – 19th October 

As he moved into space, Chair considered his options. None were as inviting as going it alone, so he checked back onto his right foot and sent a searing shot into the bottom corner.

Jack Taylor – Hull City v PETERBOROUGH UNITED – 20th October

There is something gloriously graceful about a shot whipped over everyone that drops under the bar and into the top corner. Taylor even added the ingredient of pace to his effort at Hull.

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

Harry Pell – Charlton Athletic v ACCRINGTON STANLEY– 19th October

There was no subtlety about his run-up, yet Pell’s free-kick possessed both power and curl which took it over the wall and out of the reach of Addicks keeper Craig MacGillivray.

Jack Iredale – Shrewsbury Town v CAMBRIDGE UNITED – 23rd October 

Geometrically perfect. There was a pristine quality about Iredale’s strike as he took aim from the left side. The ball was still rising at terminal velocity as it flew into the opposite top corner.

Curtis Tilt – WIGAN ATHLETIC v Burton Albion – 30th October

The defender had only scored 11 goals in 202 appearances dating back to 2014 when he took aim at a bouncing ball 25 yards out. His connection was both impeccable and stunning.

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

Nicky Cadden – Carlisle United v FOREST GREEN ROVERS – 2nd October

Collecting the ball on the touchline by halfway, Cadden was direct in his thought process and running. He played a quick one-two and surged forward to drive a shot into the far corner. 

Courtney Baker-Richardson – NEWPORT COUNTY v Scunthorpe United – 2nd October

There was no hint of the magic to come as Baker-Richardson rolled his foot over the ball and the Scunthorpe defenders backed off. Certainly not of his pinpoint, wickedly curling shot.

Theo Robinson – Swindon Town v BRADFORD CITY – 23rd October

One touch was all Robinson, playing for his 16th career club, needed to size up an exquisite, whipped curler from the angle of the area up and over Swindon keeper Jojo Wollacott.

Voting is open from 10am tomorrow on the EFL's official Twitter accounts. Voting closes on Monday 22 November. All winners will be announced on Friday 26 November.

The winners of the Sky Bet EFL Goals of the Month are chosen by a fan poll on the official Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two twitter accounts.
