Iron striker Josh Morris is the Sky Bet League One Goal of the Month winner for January, after receiving 49% of the public vote.

On a Scunthorpe counter-attack, Morris knew exactly what to do. He picked up the ball in space, slipped it on to his left foot and curled home an unstoppable shot.

Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: “Morris has been in scintillating form for the majority of this season and his goals have been crucial in Scunthorpe’s strong promotion push. 

“This one was the pick of the bunch and what I’m impressed by is how he expects to score as soon as he picks up the ball, curling it into the top corner from 30 yards.”

Morris said: “I'm obviously delighted to win it. It's nice to win it from a fans vote as well, which makes it extra special. 

“It shows the support we've had this season and it's been all over Twitter and social media, so a big thank you to everyone who has decided to get on their computers and phones to vote.

"To win the three points in the game makes it extra special, it was a good strike and it's nice to take the points and get the personal accolade from it as well.

"It was a long ball forward from Charlie (Goode) and the defender knocked it down to me. I took a few touches and decided to hit it. It was a good strike and probably one of the best I've scored.

"It was one of those strikes that you hit really well and you know it's in."

Morris beat off competition from MK Don’s Chuks Aneke and Northampton Town’s Gregg Wylde.
