Goal Of The Season: Second Place

Wednesday 14 June 2017 14:00

Tom Cairney is in the top-three once again, after his dramatic equaliser against Leeds United came second in the Goal of the Season voting.

Trailing to an early own goal, we looked set for a frustrating defeat after Neeskens Kebano’s piledriver was incorrectly adjudged to have not crossed the line, while the Fulham onslaught that followed failed to yield a breakthrough.

But in the fifth minute of stoppage time at the end of the game, Cairney received a short pass from Sone Aluko and bent an unstoppable curling, dipping strike into the far top corner of the net.

The scenes that followed will live long in the memory, as the Craven Cottage faithful went collectively berserk.

The result would prove to have huge ramifications for both sides. Eight points separated the teams at full-time, but Leeds only managed two more wins all season, compared to Fulham’s seven, which saw us nab their Play-Off spot.

Just over a quarter (26.4 per cent) of fans opted for this pivotal moment as their Goal of the Season. Be sure to return to the website on Thursday when your winner will be revealed.
