Fulham midfielder Tom Cairney has won the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month award for December for his volley in the 4-4 draw against Wolves.

The midfielder fired home from the edge of the box after Stefan Johansen picked him out with a free-kick from the left.

He beat off competition from Burton Albion’s Jamie Ward and Bristol City’s Luke Freeman to win the prize.

“It was a great moment and a great goal,” he said. “The best I’ve scored in my career, and to have won this award, I’m happy and hopefully I can score another one soon!”

Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports pundit Don Goodman said: “What can you really say when you see a goal like that? It’s a remarkable strike, clean as a whistle and a real thing of beauty.

“The most impressive thing is that technically, it is a very difficult volley to pull off, but Cairney strikes it to perfection.”
