Smallwood up for top goal award!

Richie's superb strike at Fleetwood is nominated for January Goal of the Month

9 February 2018

Richie Smallwood's wonderful winner at Fleetwood has been shortlisted for the Sky Bet League One Goal of the Month award for January.

The 27-year-old's stunning strike secured a 2-1 away win for Tony Mowbray's men and sparked jubilant celebrations amongst the Rovers supporters.

With 83 minutes on the clock, Jack Payne played the ball back to the Rovers midfielder, who unleashed an unstoppable 25-yard drive, which dipped and swerved past the Fleetwood stopper.

It was a goal worthy of winning any game!

Smallwood's superb strike is up against Alex Mowatt's free-kick for Oxford United against Walsall and Ellis Harrison's solo effort for Bristol Rovers against Doncaster. 

Voting is now open on and closes on Tuesday February 13th.

The winning goal will be announced on Friday February 16th.

Get voting, Rovers fans!
