Goal of the Month: March nominations

8 April 2022

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

Ravel Morrison – DERBY COUNTY v Barnsley – 5th March

The Barnsley defenders were mesmerised as Morrison, after cleverly stepping over a Tom Lawrence pass, was played in by Luke Plange to cap off a delightful move with a deft dink.

Neco Williams – Swansea City v FULHAM – 8th March

Williams had already scored one in Fulham’s five-star second half display when he crowned the scoring. Chesting the ball into his scoring arc, he let fly with a gorgeous dipping volley.

Djed Spence – NOTTINGHAM FOREST v Queens Park Rangers – 16th March

Spence usually sets up others, but this was all his own work. One touch 30 yards out to set himself before a strike so sweet, it bent beguilingly this way and that before bulging the net.

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

Aaron Morley – Gillingham v BOLTON WANDERERS – 5th March 

So certain was Morley that he had caught his whipped curler over Gillingham keeper Aaron Chapman to perfection, he was already running off in celebration as it dipped into the net.

Gavin Whyte – OXFORD UNITED v Burton Albion – 5th March

As he stepped up to put his laces through the ball on the edge of the Burton area, Whyte was able to judge just the right amount of slice to send it spinning into the top far corner.

Danny Mayor – PLYMOUTH ARGYLE v Cheltenham Town – 22nd March 

The true genius of Mayor’s artistry is in the disguise of his intentions. In one effortless movement he caressed a bouncing ball off the outside of his right foot to arc it into the net.

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

Elliot Anderson – BRISTOL ROVERS v Harrogate – 12th March

There was something Maradona-esque about the way Anderson slalomed his way through the Harrogate defence, showing the ball, then dragging it away before finding the bottom corner.

Jamie Proctor – PORT VALE v Sutton United – 26th March

Now at his 15th club, has Proctor ever hit the technical heights of combining a dramatic leg kick with the swish of his right boot to send a thigh-high volley thudding into the Sutton net?

Paul Smyth – LEYTON ORIENT v Barrow – 26th March

As Barrow keeper Paul Farman came out to meet him, Smyth sized up the situation in an instant, spun around and in the same movement looped home an impeccably-judged shot.

Voting is open from 10am on the EFL's official Twitter accounts. Voting closes on Monday 11 April. All winners will be announced on Friday 15 April.
