10 February 2017

Iron winger Josh Morris' match winner at Northampton Town has been named on a 3-goal shortlist for Sky Bet League One's January Goal of the Month.

The 25-year-old powered home an brilliant left-footed strike from outside the area following a defensive throw-in and a long ball up-field to hand Scunthorpe three points on the road at Sixfields.

His effort will go up against MK Dons' Chuks Aneke, who netted away at Peterborough United and Gregg Wylde who netted against the Dons for Northampton Town on the half-volley.

Here's what the judges had to say about the efforts:

Chuks Aneke – Peterborough United v MK DONS – 28th January

Collecting the ball outside the box, Aneke played a one-two with Paul Downing, strode on to the return pass and walloped a rasping drive into the top corner.

Josh Morris – SCUNTHORPE UNITED v Northampton Town – 14th January

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.

Gregg Wylde – MK Dons v NORTHAMPTON TOWN – 21st January

A case of adjusting your body to a dropping ball. A Northampton free-kick was cleared to Wylde, who chested it down beautifully before timing a sweet half-volley.

The winners of the Sky Bet EFL Goals of the Month are chosen by a fan poll on skysports.com.

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 Manager David Tweed and EFL Head of Marketing Communications Andy Dodd.
