Goal of the Month

Matty Dolan's superb opener vs Stevenage FC has been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month for October.

A judging panel comprising of Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, Sky Bet Sponsorship Manager Michael Holinski and EFL Senior Media Manager Rob Meaden - with the help of fan suggestions on Twitter - have shortlisted three of the best goals from across League Two.

Matty Dolan faces tough opposition from Bury's Nicky Maynard and Stevenage's Jordan Bowery as football fans decide who deserves to take home the trophy.

Voting is now under way at www.skysports.com

Voting for the award will close on Monday 26th November 2018 and the winner will be announced on the Friday 30th November.

The panel had this to say about their three nominations:

Nicky Maynard – BURY v Mansfield Town – 6th October

The secret of the best scissor kicks is the timing. Maynard had his down to perfection as he stopped his run, adjusted his feet and soared to meet the ball as it dropped into his arc.


Matty Dolan – NEWPORT COUNTY v Stevenage – 13th October

Off balance as he won the ball in midfield, Dolan took the return from Tyreeq Bakinson and righted himself just in time to pummel home a first-minute, thigh-high dipper from 25 yards.


Jordan Bowery – Stevenage v CREWE ALEXANDRA – 20th October

No easy way out taken here. Bowery clearly didn’t fancy an old-fashioned belter, opting instead to bend the ball exquisitely with the outside of his right foot and inside the far post.
