COURTNEY Baker-Richardson is in the running for League Two goal of the month for his wonderful strike for Newport County AFC against Scunthorpe.

The striker is up against Forest Green's Nicky Cadden and Bradford City's Theo Robinson for the October honour with the winner decided by a public vote.

Baker-Richardson scored his first goal for the club in the 3-0 win over Scunthorpe at Rodney Parade.

The 25-year-old, who missed the start of the season because of a quad injury, received the ball wide on the left and then curled in a shot from 22 metres to make it 2-0.

However, it could be argued that it wasn't even his best goal of the month.

Baker-Richardson slammed in a powerful shot from the corner of the box to finish off a flowing move in the 5-0 win against Stevenage. The footage doesn't do justice to the power of the strike.

Yet it's the effort against the Iron that has been put forward against Cadden’s goal at Carlisle and Robinson’s curled strike at Swindon Town.

The vote is open on the EFL’s League Two Twitter account until Monday.
