Goals, goals, goals! No team has scored more of them in League One this season and it's fair to say there have been plenty of excellent strikes this term.

We've trawled through every match this season to select our top ten from the campaign and managed to whittle it down to ten favourites from six Rovers players. So who gets your vote?

Goal A - Derrick Williams (MK Dons): Great strike but a horrific celebration. Williams smashes home low into the back of the net against the Dons from all of 25 yards for his first - and currently - only goal of the season.

Goal B - Craig Conway - (Portsmouth): A clinical and classy breakaway goal, Conway races through and delicately loops the ball over Luke McGee in the Portsmouth goal to seal a 3-0 win against the visitors from Hampshire.

Goal C - Bradley Dack (Bury): A cracking strike from the playmaker, whose strike from 25 yards nestles neatly in the bottom corner to finish off an excellent individual performance, with Dack already having two assists in the game before scoring the third goal of three at Gigg Lane.

Goal D - Bradley Dack (Peterborough): Dack again. The Rovers number 23 finishes off a lovely flowing move that started on the Rovers byline with Craig Conway, involved Dominic Samuel and Marcus Antonsson before Dack finished things off with a cool finish.

Goal E - Richie Smallwood (Fleetwood): A belter from the King of Ewood. Jack Payne finds him on the edge of the box and Richie does the rest; firing home from 20 yards to send the away fans wild!

Goal F - Charlie Mulgrew (Oldham): We could have picked a number of the skipper's superb free kicks this season, but this one gets the nod. The captain curls into the top corner against the Latics to start a comeback at Ewood Park. Classy strike.

Goal G - Elliott Bennett (AFC Wimbledon): A first goal of the season from Benno and it was one of his belters. He picks up the ball from 25 yards before expertly curling into the bottom corner and beyond George Long. The celebration? That famous fist pump, of course!

Goal H - Bradley Dack (AFC Wimbledon): Bennett's goal wasn't the only Goal of the Season contender against the Dons! Some great wing play from Danny Graham sees him feed Dack with a low cross and the playmkaer craftily dinks the ball over George Long to make it 3-0 on a chilly night in south London.

Goal I - Adam Armstrong (Wigan): Dack is involved in this one, too. His ball is inch-perfect for Armstrong, who takes his shot early with his weaker left foot to give Rovers an early lead in the top-of-the-table clash at Ewood Park.

Goal J - Adam Armstrong (Blackpool): A beauty from the on loan Newcastle man. Dack tees him up and another first time strike - with his right foot this time - is crashed into Joe Lumley's top left-hand corner. Absolutely fabulous!

So there we have it. We've picked our 10, now you need to pick your number one from our selection and let us know your pick below!
