Corkers by George Maris and Stephen Quinn join a well-worked Tom Nichols goal for Crawley.

Fans are invited to vote for their favourite via the official EFL League Two Twitter account with voting closing on Monday, 19th April and the winner being announced on Friday, 23rd April.

The Maris strike came against Grimsby Town on 20th March.

He didn’t hesitate as the ball was rolled square to him on the edge of the area. Taking it early, it was the crispness of his shot which left Grimsby keeper James McKeown motionless.

Quinn’s goal at Tranmere Rovers on 27th March was all about balance. Having joined in a game of head tennis, he calmly took a step back and allowed the ball the drop into the arc of his left foot to time a delightful volley.

Nicholls contributed two touches to a delightful team goal for Crawley at Tranmere on 6th March, both of them impudent flicks. The first changed the direction of play, the second delicately glanced the ball home from six yards.

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, Sky Bet sponsorship executive Matt Goodwin and EFL Media & PR officer Billie Marshall.
