Evans volley nominated

4 May 2018

Lee Evans has been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month award for April.

It was the Welshman's first of two volleyed goals that caught the eye in the Bramall Lane victory over Middlesbrough.

Voting is open now, with voting closing on Tuesday 8th May, winners will be announced on Friday 11th May.

The three nominees are as follows.

Lee Evans
SHEFFIELD UNITED v Middlesbrough
10th April
It must have been tempting to strike this volley as hard as he could. Evans resisted the urge and controlled his volley of a dropping ball so sweetly, it still flew into the top corner.

Jack Grealish
ASTON VILLA v Cardiff City
10th April
While others crowded into the box, Grealish stood his ground on the edge of the area. The key to his match-winning volley was the patience to wait for the ball to drop into his arc.

Ruben Neves
11th April
A once-in-a-career strike. Derby thought they had cleared the danger. Neves had other ideas, flicking the ball up and looping a majestic 30-yard volley into the top corner at pace.
