BURTON Albion’s December goal of the month has been nominated for Sky Bet’s goal of the month competition.Jamie Ward’s strike against Aston Villa was voted as goal of the month by the Brewers fans, and it has now been selected for Sky Bet’s goal of the month, along with two other entries.
Tom Cairney - Wolves v FULHAM – 3rd December
A goal off the training ground. Stefan Johansen guided his free-kick on to the left foot of Cairney whose impeccably timed volley flew past Wolves keeper Harry Burgoyne.
Jamie Ward - Aston Villa v BURTON ALBION – 26th December
John Brayford’s cross was curling away from goal but instead of deterring him, it set Ward up for an acrobatic scissors kick volley against his former club.
Luke Freeman – BRISTOL CITY v Ipswich Town – 3rd December
Freeman demonstrated superb technique to backpedal as he saw a defensive header come his way. The timing of his left-volley as he backed away was staggering.
