Brandon Thomas-Asante scoops November Goal of the Month Award

Brandon Thomas-Asante with his Goal of the Month award

Brandon Thomas-Asante’s spectacular strike against Stoke City has won the Sky Bet Championship November Goal of the Month award.

The forward fired an acrobatic bicycle kick over the head of Potters keeper Jack Bonham and into the back of the net from inside the penalty area – Albion’s second goal in their 2-0 win at The Hawthorns.

Brandon saw off competition from Manuel Benson (Burnley), Josh Ruffles (Huddersfield Town) and Riley McGree (Middlesbrough).

The result was decided by an online vote combined with the choices of a judging panel including Sky Sports’ EFL experts Don Goodman & David Prutton.

Speaking about the award, Brandon said: “I’m really happy to have won. 

“I know there was a lot of really good entries and I wasn’t expecting to win it. But I’m happy to have been handed this award and hopefully I can get a few more goals going forward now. 

“The goal was instinct and I want to keep expressing myself now that I’ve got my feet under the table here. 

“I know the fans have been really supportive, but there’s a lot more to do and we’ve got to keep getting these results and, hopefully, going forward I can produce more moments like I did against Stoke. 

“I feel like I can impact any game at this level now and compliments go to my team-mates for that because they’re making it easier for me to get those chances in front of goal. 

“I’m starting to get used to everyone, they’re getting used to the runs that I like to make, and I think there’s only good things to come from this group now.”
