Billing up for Championship GOTM


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Philip Billing's stunning volley against Swansea City has been put forward as one of the three nominees for the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month.

Cherries fans can get their votes in by heading to the EFL's Twitter poll, here.

Billing is joined by Preston North End's Ched Evans and Rotherham United's Freddie Ladapo in the running.

Philip Billing – BOURNEMOUTH v Swansea City – 16th March

Arnaut Danjuma's cross towards the Dane meant nothing but an acrobatic finish would end in a goal and Billing was worthy of the task, leaping to hook a brilliant volley back over his own shoulder and leaving the 'keeper with no chance.

Ched Evans – Millwall v PRESTON NORTH END – 2nd March

Evans defied the laws of geometry as he sprinted across the pitch to a dropping ball, yet somehow caught it so exquisitely on the volley that it flew at a right angle into the bottom corner.

Freddie Ladapo – ROTHERHAM UNITED v Watford – 16th March

Watford’s players stood collectively in disbelief after Ladapo picked up the ball in midfield, sprinted forward, jinked inside and sent an angled, looping 25-yard shot into the far corner.

The winners of the Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month awards are chosen by a fan poll on the official Twitter accounts.

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, Sky Bet Sponsorship Executive Matt Goodwin and EFL Media & PR Officer Billie Marshall.

Voting closes on Monday 19th April, with winners announced on Friday 23rd April.
