LLOYD Dyer has scooped Burton Albion’s goal of the month accolade for October 2016.The winger’s goal against Birmingham City on Friday 21 October has been voted as October’s goal of the month ahead of Jackson Irvine, Lucas Akins and Jamie Ward who all netted during the same month.
Here’s how the goal was described in our official match report:
‘Albion finally grabbed the lead on 32 minutes with a superb finish. A quickly taken free kick was worked to Ward who showed good skill to turn his man and break towards goal. Getting to the edge of the box he opted to slip the ball to his left rather than shoot and running into the box was DYER who steered the ball beyond Legzdins with the outside of his left boot, a superb finish that deserved to see the ball nestle in the back of the net.’
It’s the first time the award hasn’t been won by Jackson Irvine after he previously picked up August and September’s awards.
