Forward in contention to win monthly award for his strike against Gillingham

Sammy Ameobi is in the running for Sky Bet's Goal of the Month award for December 2016.

The nominations for the accolade are as follows:

Sammy Ameobi (Bolton Wanderers) v Gillingham

Picking the ball up in midfield, Ameobi strode forward, then stepped inside on the edge of the box and clipped an unstoppable shot into the far corner. 

Ian Henderson (Rochdale) v Chesterfield

A prime example of vision and skill coming together. Henderson knew exactly what to do with Oliver Rathbone’s pass – curl it languidly, first time, into the top corner. 

Gwion Edwards (Peterborough United) v Chesterfield

Edwards set off at pace as the ball dropped to him near the touchline. Dribbling past defenders, he then unleashed an angled drive which arrowed into the net. 



Voting is now open on skysports.com, while winners will be announced on Friday 13 January.


The shortlist for the poll is decided by a judging panel following suggestions from supporters via Twitter.  

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, Sky Bet Sponsorship Manager David Tweed and EFL Head of Marketing Communications Andy Dodd.
