Conor Chaplin wins Goal of the Month award for December!

Millwall strike gets the nod in fans' vote

10 January 2020

It's another individual honour for our red-hot forward!

Conor Chaplin's left-footed, first-time finish from just inside the box at The Den against Millwall came out on top in our monthly search for the best goal.

Making it back-to-back wins in this competition, the clever striker picks up the monthly gong after getting 41% of your votes. Indeed, his half-volley against QPR was nearest challenger on 29%.

The former Portsmouth forward kicked off a terrific victory over the Lions when he was on hand inside the box to meet Jacob Brown's inviting low cross and flick the ball in and over the goalkeeper into the far corner which set the Reds on their way to their first road-trip triumph of the season.

Chaplin was happy to receive the honour for a second month running and told us why it was a special moment for him and the team.

He told us: “The goal was an important one for a couple of reasons. We had just had one of our poorest 45 minutes of the season away at a very tough ground to visit. So the timing was massive.

“I think that enabled us to believe we could go on and win a very important game for us!”

Conor will receive his award at Oakwell this weekend as the Reds welcome the Terriers in Sky Bet Championship action.
