PELLY PILEDRIVER SHORTLISTED FOR GOAL OF THE MONTH!

Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu's goal against Crewe is up for Sky Bet League Two GOTM

8 May 2018

Town midfielder Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu's thumping effort in the 3-1 win over Crewe Alexandra three weeks ago has been shortlisted for Sky Bet EFL League Two Goal of the Month for April.

After a string of sterling performances in the centre of the park for Nathan Jones' side, Pelly opened his goal account for the campaign against the Railwaymen, smashing the ball home from 25 yards, finding the top left corner.

 

Pelly is up against Stevenage's Danny Newton and Newport County's Padraig Amond in the battle to win the award, with the league sponsors Sky Bet describing the trio's goals in the following way:

 

Danny Newton – STEVENAGE v Barnet – 2nd April

A game of head tennis ended with the ball bouncing towards the corner flag. Newton merely saw it as a chance to change direction and hook it over Barnet keeper Craig Ross.

Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu – LUTON TOWN v Crewe Alexandra – 14th April

Proof that Mpanzu’s rocket shot was sweetly struck comes from the fact that after 25 yards of arrowing unerringly towards goal, the ball was still rising as the net intercepted it.

Padraig Amond – NEWPORT COUNTY v Swindon Town – 14th April

A touch of South American magic in south Wales as Amond cushioned an out-swinging cross on his instep before his sublime no-look volley curled deliciously under the bar.

 

VOTING IS NOW OPEN ON SKYSPORTS.COM UNTIL 6PM ON TUESDAY 8 MAY

ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON FRIDAY 11 MAY

 

The winners of the Sky Bet EFL Goals of the Month are chosen by a fan poll on SKYSPORTS.COM
