November Goal of the Month: Cast Your Vote!

8 December 2022

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

Manuel Benson – BURNLEY v Rotherham United – 2nd November

Receiving the ball a yard in from the touchline, Benson didn’t hesitate to cut inside and slip past one defender before darting past another. He followed it with a perfect curler into the far corner.

Josh Ruffels – Queens Park Rangers v HUDDERSFIELD TOWN – 8th November

Ruffels had already scored one when the ball dropped to him at a free-kick. Controlling it on his thigh with his back to goal, he hooked it instinctively over the QPR defence into the empty net.

Riley McGree – Norwich City v MIDDLESBROUGH – 12th November

There is something magical about a goal that features a leg kick to elevate a player to the right height to strike a dropping ball. McGree’s timing from 25 yards was equally spectacular.

Brandon Thomas-Asante – WEST BROMWICH ALBION v Stoke City – 12th November

As a ball into the Stoke area was sent skywards by a defender, Thomas-Asante adjusted his body and aligned it with precision to volley home a breath-taking acrobatic, angled bicycle kick.

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


Carlos Mendes Gomes – Oxford United v FLEETWOOD TOWN – 1st November

Involved earlier in the move, Mendes Gomes chased into the box for a potential rebound before performing an about-turn and then contorting his body to convert a close-range bicycle-kick.

Adam Randell – Lincoln City v PLYMOUTH ARGYLE – 12th November

The technique to drive home a low, skimming shot into the bottom corner from 20 yards should not be under-estimated. Randell made it look simple, finding a path through a packed defence.

Victor Adeboyejo – BURTON ALBION v Charlton Athletic – 12th November

After turning onto a headed clearance, Adeboyejo proved you don’t always need to take on defenders if you can take a step and send a 20-yard piledriver careering into the top corner.

Garath McCleary – Forest Green Rovers v WYCOMBE WANDERERS – 12th November

McCleary didn’t panic when the ball ran away from him. He retrieved it, then squared up a defender before executing perfectly an audacious flicked shot with the outside of his right boot.

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

Andy Cook – Mansfield Town v BRADFORD CITY – 8th November

The prolific Cook is all about power headers and poaching tap-ins, right? Wrong. His pace won a race to the corner flag before he beat one man, slipped inside another and drilled home calmly.

Scott Banks – Sutton United v BRADFORD CITY – 12th November

Such was the trajectory and flight of Banks’ shot after receiving the ball by the angle of the area that Sutton keeper Jack Rose could only watch on as it dipped wickedly into the top corner.

Harrison Biggins – Grimsby Town v DONCASTER ROVERS – 12th November

Half-volleys do not come much sweeter than this. What made Biggins’ strike from the edge of the Grimsby box even more impressive was how he tiptoed back into position to connect with it.

Samson Tovide – COLCHESTER UNITED v Doncaster Rovers – 19th November

Even as he sprinted onto a through ball, Doncaster thought they had Tovide covered. That was until he took a step and walloped his searing, rising shot inside the angle of post and bar.

The supporters' votes will be combined with the choices from a panel to determine the winners.

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL experts Don Goodman & David Prutton.
