Danny Mayor wins Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month

26 October 2018

Danny Mayor is the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month winner for September, receiving 46% of the public vote.

Left unmarked on the halfway line, Danny turned in possession, drove two Grimsby defenders back before checking back inside to whip home an unstoppable 20-yarder.

Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: “Mayor actually scored two great goals in the same Grimsby game at the start of September, but it was the finish applied to the second after an explosive run that showed just how much quality he possesses.

“He didn’t even need to look up - after beating three men - to know exactly where the far post was and such is the power and accuracy on his shot, the keeper didn’t stand a chance.”

Mayor said: “Yeah, of course it is always nice to be awarded for a great goal, but the main thing is that we got the three points on the day.

“I think Thomo won a header, I was on the half-way line. I just went for a run and somehow it just opened up.

“We were three-nil up at the time, so there was no harm in trying. I had Fadz [Callum McFadzean] on the overlap so I was kind of looking for him, but it opened up on the inside, so I thought I would go for it and luckily it went in.

“If I come on the inside I like to go for the far corner. I have only got one of them this season so hopefully, I can get a few more.

“You know we are on a good run, we have not lost for about five games now. The gaffer has got us playing really well, so yeah, hopefully, we can continue. We are in a good place and long it may continue.”

Danny beat off competition from Stevenage’s Ben Kennedy and Morecambe’s Liam Mandeville.
