Danjuma wins Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month award

Nigeria-born Bournemouth winger Arnaut Danjuma is the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month winner for April, receiving 43% of the public vote.

Not content with dancing along the touchline, dragging the ball past two defenders and then slicing infield, Danjuma cut a perfectly struck shot back against his direction of travel.

Danjuma said: “I’m delighted to win this award and would like to thank everyone who voted for me.

“It was an important goal because it helped us pick up a big three points against a great Norwich side. When I cut inside, I wasn’t sure if I should have shot earlier, but I took a second touch and then hit it with my laces and it flew into the top corner.

“It was a great game and a great win for us. We went to Norwich with a mission – to win the game – and I’m delighted that I could help us achieve that. It was a big step in helping us achieve our place in the Play-Offs.”

Danjuma beat off competition from Derby County’s Tom Lawrence and Queens Park Rangers’ Rob Dickie.
