Aboubakar Kamara’s deft chip against Burton Albion has won Fulham’s January Goal of the Month competition, brought to you by ICM.
The striker only came off the bench in the 75th minute but still managed to make a telling contribution before the game was out, adding Fulham’s sixth in the closing stages.
The Brewers were holding a fairly high line having been on the attack, which saw them caught cold when Ryan Fredericks sent a clearance into Kamara in the centre circle.
He played a first time pass back to Tom Cairney before darting forwards, and a pinpoint through ball from his captain sent Kamara in on goal.
He still had plenty of ground to cover but his pace took him away from the last man. Stephen Bywater rushed out to narrow the angle and even though the goalkeeper stayed tall, Kamara was able to execute a perfect chip that lofted over Bywater and dropped beautifully into the back of the net.
The 22-year-old was a comfortable winner of the award, with 44.6 per cent of supporters giving him their vote. Lucas Piazon’s sweet first time strike in the same game was second with 18.6 per cent, ahead of Jon Dagur Thorsteinsson’s trademark long ranger in the PL2 which claimed 14.6 per cent.
