LFE’s Goal of the Month returns for the fifth edition of the 2017-18 season, with nine tremendous strikes from the month of January in the mix.

Matt Mayes (Portsmouth), Caolan Boyd-Munce (Birmingham City), Ellis Chapman (Lincoln City) and Jordan Doherty (Sheffield United) have all claimed the Goal of the Month prize so far to put their names in the hat for the Goal of the Season award.

The latest instalment includes stunning long-range efforts from Kyran Lofthouse (Oxford United), Alex Hunt (Sheffield Wednesday) and Luke Jephcott (Plymouth Argyle), while Newcastle United’s Elias Sorensen and Northampton Town’s Morgan Roberts showed their expertise from dead-ball situations with pinpoint free-kicks.

Elsewhere, Henry Wise (Derby County) struck a well-controlled volley to earn a place on the shortlist, plus accurate strikes from Ben Worman (Cambridge United), Charlie Dowd (Burton Albion) and Lewis Bradley (Rochdale) also made the cut.
