Unsurprisingly, the Blades have a nomination for Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month Award for October.

In a month that saw the Blades score nine times, racking up four wins in the process, Paul Coutts's stunning strike which opened the scoring against Reading has been shortlisted alongside two other goals.

The nominees in full are as follows...

Sammy Ameobi
Bolton Wanderers v Sheffield Wednesday
Saturday 14th October
Ameobi headed towards the wing initially before cutting back inside and curling an exquisite shot into the bottom corner to set up Bolton's first EFL win of the season.

Paul Coutts
Sheffield United v Reading
Saturday 21st October
Coutts didn't hesitate as the ball was poked out to him off a defender's leg. One swish of his left foot later and it took a perfect arc on its way into the top corner of the net.

Joe Williams
Burton Albion v Barnsley
Saturday 31st October
Pure dynamism from Williams, firstly to anticipate a bouncing ball, next to chest it forwards into space and finally to time the sweetest of left-foot volleys to perfection.

Voting is open now and will close on Tuesday 14th November, with winners to be announced on Friday 17th November.

The winners of the Sky Bet EFL Goals of the Month are chosen by a fan poll on

The shortlist for the poll is decided by a judging panel following suggestions from supporters via Twitter.
