Goal of the Month September nominations

8 October 2021

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

Tom Dele-Bashiru – READING v Peterborough United – 14 September

Some shots are unstoppable. Posh keeper Christy Pym could only watch on transfixed as Dele-Bashiru arced his 20-yard curler inches inside the post and under the bar with pace and precision.

Alex Mowatt – Cardiff City v WEST BROMWICH ALBION – 28 September 

Him again. Mowatt owes his growing collection of stunning goals to an innate technical ability to turn timing into power. Rarely do half-volleys fly off the boot so sweetly as this one.

Aleksandar Mitrovic – FULHAM v Swansea City – 29 September 

It took less than 15 seconds for Fulham to transfer the ball from keeper Paulo Gazzaniga to the Swansea net, via six players including Mitrovic and his unerring, one-touch connection.

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

Danny Andrew – Rotherham United v FLEETWOOD TOWN – 11 September

Andrew took up a curious position for his free-kick, approaching the ball from sideways on before whipping it with such ferocity and curl that it spun into the top corner in an instant.

Cole Stockton – MORECAMBE v AFC Wimbledon – 11 September 

Decisions come easy when you are in the form of your career. Stockton took one glance at the Wimbledon goal before producing a 40-yard lob as breath-taking as it was audacious.

Ronan Curtis – Charlton Athletic v PORTSMOUTH – 25 September

Charlton keeper Craig MacGillivray was only a few feet off his line, but he could do nothing as former Pompey teammate Curtis lifted a wickedly dipping, perfectly placed shot over him.

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

David Worrall – PORT VALE v Harrogate Town – 18 September

If his tippy-tappy steps to adjust his position to the ball seemed a tad awkward, the shot that Worrall unleashed with a swish of his right foot exuded an effortless, if forbidding, power.

Josh Gordon – BARROW v Newport County – 24 September 

Gordon didn’t hesitate when he picked up the ball in midfield, turning instantly and bearing down on the Newport area before sweeping a beautifully controlled shot into the far corner.

Matty Lund – SALFORD CITY v Northampton Town – 25 September

As the ball was nodded into his path, Lund hopped into position, lifting his right foot to gain elevation and striking the ball as he did so in a wonderfully inventive piece of improvisation.

Voting is open from 10am on the EFL's official Twitter accounts. Voting closes on Monday 11 October. All winners will be announced on Friday 16 October.

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.

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, Sky Bet Sponsorship Executive Matt Goodwin and EFL Media & PR Officer Billie Marshall.
