West Bromwich Albion striker Brandon Thomas-Asante, says he is delighted to have won the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month award for November.
As a ball into the Stoke area was sent skywards by a defender, Thomas-Asante adjusted his body and aligned it with precision to volley home a breath-taking acrobatic, angled bicycle kick.
Thomas-Asante said: “I’m really happy to have won the award.
“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.”
Thomas-Asante beat off competition from Burnley’s Manuel Benson, Huddersfield Town’s Josh Ruffels & Middlesbrough’s Riley McGree.
