VOTE NOW | Davies Strike Nominated For Sky Bet League One Goal Of The Month

6 April 2018

Steven Davies' acrobatic strike against Shrewsbury Town on Good Friday has been nominated for Sky Bet League One Goal Of The Month.

The winner is chosen by a public vote, and you can vote for Davies' strike by clicking HERE. Voting closes at 6pm on Tuesday 10th April.

Davies, who had only been introduced as a substitute three minutes earlier, put Dale 2-1 up with a fine overhead kick in the 3-1 win over Shrewsbury.

His strike is one of three nominations for the award:

Conor Wilkinson – Portsmouth v GILLINGHAM – 10th March

Three touches were all it took for Wilkinson to equalise with this beauty. One to control the ball, two to nudge it to one side and, bang, three to arc it unerringly into the top corner.

Lewis Page - CHARLTON ATHLETIC v Plymouth Argyle – 24th March

It would have been easy for Page to panic after controlling the ball with his chest. Instead, he judged the bounce perfectly, looping his shot into the far corner for his first career goal.

Steve Davies – ROCHDALE v Shrewsbury Town – 30th March

Back to goal as a free-kick was headed into his path, Davies didn’t hesitate in hooking the ball over his head and inches under bar with this acrobatic move. Who needs Ronaldo?

Watch Davies' strike and highlights from the win below.

The shortlist for the poll is decided by a judging panel following suggestions from supporters via Twitter.

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; Sky Bet Sponsorship Executive Michael Holinski and EFL Senior Media Manager Rob Meaden.
