SAM HOSKINS WINS SKY BET LEAGUE 2 GOAL OF THE MONTH AWARD

Strike at Tranmere named February's top goal

15 March 2019

Sam Hoskins is the Sky Bet League 2 Goal of the Month winner for February, receiving 46% of the public vote.

Marked closely and running diagonally across the area, Hoskins defied all logic as he backheeled home a half-volley and threw in a pirouette for good measure.

Hoskins said: “It was a good cross from David Buchanan, I didn’t have the time or space to take a touch and control the ball so it was about helping it on and aiming for the far post as much as anything.

“It came off perfectly and it was a very good time for us because we were under a lot of pressure but we took a lead into half-time and went on to win what was a very important game for us.

"I'm delighted to have won the award, and hopefully we can keep our good form going in to the final nine games of the season."

Hoskins beat off competition from Swindon Town’s Kaiyne Woolery and Stevenage’s Illias Chair.
