Around League Two

22 February 2019

It’s been another busy week across Sky Bet League Two and as the season continues to roll on, the more dramatic the season is becoming. So, we round up three stories you may have missed from around the division today.

January Goal Of The Month Winner Announced

Lincoln City striker Shay McCartan was named the winner of January’s Goal of the Month award this week.

His goal for The Imps away at Swindon Town received 53% of the vote and staved off competition from Morecambe’s Kevin Ellison and Cambridge’s Jevani Brown to win the award.

The goal itself was a sweetly struck volley which he hammered into the back of the net, leaving Swindon goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux with no chance of stopping.

McCartan told the EFL’s website: “It’s nice to get these awards, obviously it was a good goal. I was delighted with it, some could say it was one in a hundred, but I’ll take it, it was good.

“I was buzzing to be fair, I knew it was a good goal because I could see by the lad’s reactions. It was funny because I’d not trained well all week, so they took the mickey out of me a little bit with not training too well then scoring a goal like that, so it was a good feeling.”


James Norwood On Track For The Golden Boot

Tranmere Rovers striker James Norwood took his goal tally for the season to twenty-two against Port Vale on Tuesday night, extending his lead at the top of the goalscoring charts.

He scored a brace against Port Vale on Tuesday night which means the striker is now six goals ahead of his closest rival – Mansfield’s Tyler Walker.


Ilias Chair Steals The Show For Stevenage As They Leave It Late Against Lincoln

It was another dramatic week of Sky Bet League Two football and one of the most captivating games took place at Sincil Bank.

Lincoln were 2 - 0 up against Stevenage up until the 85th minute. However, Stevenage winger Ilias Chair was yet to have his say on proceedings.

He pulled a goal back with a fantastic dipping strike from just inside the area to give the visitors hope of taking something from the game before he went on to steal a point in the 95th minute with an even better strike - lobbing the goalkeeper from around thirty yards out.

The impressive performance meant Chair made it into the Football League Paper’s Team of The Day and EA Sport's Fifa Team of The Week.
