Cambridge United midfielder Jack Roles is the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month winner for October, receiving 43% of the public vote.
Having beaten two men on the halfway line, Roles saw his clip forward headed back into his path. No matter as he used his momentum to drive home a grass-cutter from 30 yards.
Roles said: “It’s great to receive this award but it's quite funny because a lot of people say that I'm always in the right place at the right time when I score my goals. Since I've been on loan at Cambridge United I’ve scored a couple a great goals.
"I tried to play a ball over the top to Paul (Lewis) and it didn't quite come off but it fell back nicely to me and I saw the keeper was off his line. I just thought why not try something and thankfully for me and the team I connected well with it.”
Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: “It was Roles’ battling in midfield and intercepted chipped through-ball that led to the it ending up at his feet after a defensive header from Eddie Clarke served only as an elaborate one-two with the Spurs loanee.
“Roles had both the vision and audacity to take on the shot first time and in doing so, caught the Macclesfield keeper Owen Evans cold with his low drive.”
Roles beat off competition from Morecambe’s John O’Sullivan and Scunthorpe United’s James Perch.
