Ollie Watkins has been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month Award for August. The Brentford attacker grabbed three goals in the month but it is the one against Stoke City that has been chosen as one of the top three in the league last month. The goal, which earned The Bees a 1-1 draw, can be seen below.
Goals from Harvey Barnes, of West Bromwich Albion, and Barry Bannan, of Sheffield United, are also nominated for the award. The winners of the Sky Bet EFL Goals of the Month are chosen by a fan poll on skysports.com. Voting is open now and closes on Monday, 10 September. The winner will be announced next Friday.
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 Michael Holinski and EFL Senior Media Manager Rob Meaden. To suggest a goal to be considered for future Sky Bet Goal of the Month awards, fans can tweet details of their nominated goal to @SkyBet using #SkyBetGotM.
