Brad Potts Win Championship Goal Of The Month Award

23 September 2022

Brad Potts has been named the winner of the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month award for August!

Pottsy's stunning strike against Luton Town, which sealed the three points for the Lilywhites at Kenilworth Road, has been awarded the accolade fending off competition from three other nominees.

Following a public vote, combined with the votes of EFL pundits Don Goodman and David Prutton, Brad beat Chris Willock, Ismaila Sarr and Ilias Chair to the award.

Speaking after being presented with the award, the 28-year-old said: "It's great to win the award, obviously there was a lot of talk about the goal at the time. In the game I didn't realise it was so high up, I just thought it was a side volley, it was only when I watched the goal back and saw the angle of how high up I actually was.

"I think if I had gone with my head it wouldn't have gone in so I had to try something else! I was really happy with the goal and more importantly we won the game."

Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: “It was going to take something particularly special to prevail given the calibre of goals on display and it was the creativity in Brad Potts’ finish that really set it apart.

“Many would have attempted to head the pinpoint cross at goal, but Potts’ acrobatic volley raised the difficulty level and meant that it was a real collector’s item.”
