VOTE | Sammy Ameobi nominated for October Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month

Sammy Ameobi's curling effort on his second Wanderers home debut against Sheffield Wednesday has been nominated for the Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month award for October.


Enjoying a memorbable month for Phil Parkinson's side, the popular returned from a six-week injury lay-off to score three goals and help Wanderers put together a five-game unbeaten run heading into the November international break.

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

Sammy Ameobi – BOLTON WANDERERS v Sheffield Wednesday – 14 October
Ameobi headed towards the wing initially before cutting back inside and curling an exquisite shot into the bottom corner to set up Bolton’s first EFL win of the season.

Paul Coutts – SHEFFIELD UNITED v Reading – 21 October
Coutts didn’t hesitate as the ball was poked out to him off a defender’s leg. One swish of his left foot later and it took a perfect arc on its way into the top corner of the net.

Joe Williams – Burton Albion v BARNSLEY – 31 October
Pure dynamism from Williams, firstly to anticipate a bouncing ball, next to chest it forwards into space and finally to time the sweetest of left-foot volleys to perfection.
