VOTE | Adam Le Fondre nominated for February Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month

10 March 2018

Adam Le Fondre's stunning volley against Fulham has been nominated for the Sky Bet EFL Sky bet Championship Goal of the Month award for February.


Having just joined the action as a second half substitute, the striker made an immediate impact as he sprinted onto Antonee Robinson's flick-on before unleashing an unstoppable volley against the promotion-chasing Cottagers to earn Phil Parkinson's men a share of the spoils.

With Le Fondre's effort one of several stunning strikes across the division during the month, the judging panel were unable to narrow down the shortlist so there six goals up for the award this month as opposed to the normal three.

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

Ruben Neves – WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS v Sheffield United – 3 February

Blessed with a technique that is the envy of his peers, Neves made the ridiculously hard task of curling a 20-yard shot just inside where bar and post meet look effortlessly simple.

Adam Le Fondre – BOLTON WANDERERS v Fulham – 10 February

Le Fondre performed two exquisite skills to score. Firstly, the ability to judge to perfection a ball dropping over his shoulder. Secondly, the sweetest of low volleys across his body.

Billy Sharp – SHEFFIELD UNITED v Leeds United – 10 February

Sharp adjusted his position to allow for the loop of the ball off a defender’s head as he executed a power-packed waist-high hooked volley for his 200th career Sky Bet EFL goal..

Conor Hourihane – ASTON VILLA v Birmingham City – 11 February

Hourihane etched his name in Second City derby and Villa folklore with a stunning effort. Chesting the ball down, he struck the sweetest of dipping volleys into the Birmingham net.

Jamie Allen – Barnsley v BURTON ALBION – 20 February

Is there a better way to start a game? A true team goal spanning 55 seconds featured 18 crisp, urgent passes, clever movement and ended with Allen’s pinpoint rising 20-yarder.

Liam Kelly – READING v Derby County – 24 February

The degree of difficulty in Kelly’s strike rose because he was looking at the ball coming towards him and away from the target as he swept his unerring shot into the far corner.
