Saïd Benrahma wins Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month award

Algerian's strike against Hull City takes top spot

15 March 2019

Saïd Benrahma is the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month winner for February, receiving 56% of the public vote.

The Griffin Park pitch was Benrahma’s dance floor as shimmied with twinkle-toed delight through a mesmerised Hull defence before lifting a shot into the net with the toe of his boot.

The goal began a stunning hat-trick, the first of Saïd's career, as we beat The Tigers 5-1 to record another victory on home soil. It was just reward for the 23-year-old's sublime February form which saw him score four goals, contributing just as many assists, and earned him a nomination for the Player of the Month prize. 

Benrahma said: “I just picked the ball up and went. I kept on dribbling and then managed to score. It gave me great pleasure to score a goal like that”

Benrahma beat off competition from Reading’s Nelson Oliveira and Norwich City’s Teemu Pukki.
