Cairney Nominated (Again)

Friday 9 September 2016 07:51

Tom Cairney has been nominated for August’s Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month award.

Fresh from his Player of the Month nomination, Cairney’s curling strike at Leeds United is one of three nominees for the award, which will be voted for by fans on skysports.com, with the winner revealed on Friday 16th September.

Nominees:

Jacob Murphy (Norwich City) v Blackburn

Suggested by @callum_innit

Murphy picked the ball up from Jonny Howson, beat his man and rifled a shot into the top right hand corner from 25 yards. It was Murphy’s first goal for the club on a successful opening day outing for the Canaries as they ran out 4-1 victors at Ewood Park.

Tom Cairney (Fulham) v Leeds

Suggested by @_Rilerrrs

Cairney allowed Kevin McDonald’s pass from the right wing to roll across his body, before dispatching a curling effort into the bottom left corner of Robert Green’s goal from outside the area. Cairney’s 77th minute effort was cancelled out by an injury time Chris Wood strike for Leeds as they drew 1-1 at Elland Road.

Dwight Gayle (Newcastle United) v Reading

Suggested by @davearmstrong94

The first of two goals in the game for Newcastle’s new Number 9. Dwight lined up the 30-yard free kick and hit a fierce curling effort into the top left hand corner of Ali Al-Habsi’s goal. The Toon Army ran out 4-1 winners after a hectic early season clash at St James’ Park.

VOTING IS NOW OPEN ON SKYSPORTS.COM

ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 16

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; Sky Bet Sponsorship Manager David Tweed and EFL Commercial Marketing Manager James Walker.
