READ | Ladapo wonderstrike v Watford nominated for March Goal of the Month

16 April 2021

The March nominations for the

Sky Bet Championship

Goal of the Month are:

 

 

Evans – Millwall v PRESTON NORTH END – 2nd March

Evans defied the laws of geometry as he sprinted across the pitch to a dropping ball, yet somehow caught it so exquisitely on the volley that it flew at a right angle into the bottom corner.

 

Philip Billing – BOURNEMOUTH v Swansea City – 16th March

At first glance, the way in which Billing contorted his body to hook a left foot volley around a cross that was curling behind him seemed awkward. Look again and its brilliance stands out.

 

Freddie Ladapo – ROTHERHAM UNITED v Watford – 16th March

Watford’s players stood collectively in disbelief after Ladapo picked up the ball in midfield, sprinted forward, jinked inside and sent an angled, looping 25-yard shot into the far corner.

 

The March nominations for the

Sky Bet League One

Goal of the Month Award are:

 

 

Morgan Rogers – Ipswich Town v LINCOLN CITY – 9th March

Silky smooth from the moment he chested down a pass on the halfway line, Rogers cruised forward and then, with the minimum of effort, caressed a sumptuous curler into the top corner.

 

Conor Grant – MK Dons v PLYMOUTH ARGYLE – 16th March

There was nothing subtle about Grant’s decision-making as he received the ball 25 yards. One touched controlled it, the second sent it arrowing firm and true into the MK Dons net.

 

Siriki Dembele – Rochdale v PETERBOROUGH UNITED – 20th March

Dembele’s acceleration from a standing start proved too much for the Rochdale defence as he dribbled his way into a shooting position before whipping home an angled, dipping shot.

 

The March nominations for the

Sky Bet League Two

Goal of the Month Award are:

 

 

Tom Nichols – Tranmere Rovers v CRAWLEY TOWN – 6th March

Nicholls contributed two touches to a delightful team goal, both of them impudent flicks. The first changed the direction of play, the second delicately glanced the ball home from six yards.

 

George Maris – MANSFIELD TOWN v Grimsby Town – 20th March

Maris didn’t hesitate as the ball was rolled square to him on the edge of the area. Taking it early, it was the crispness of his shot which left Grimsby keeper James McKeown motionless.

 

Stephen Quinn – Tranmere Rovers v MANSFIELD TOWN – 27th March

Quinn’s goal was all about balance. Having joined in a game of head tennis, he calmly took a step back and allowed the ball the drop into the arc of his left foot to time a delightful volley.
