The frontman is up for the vote following his superb strike on the opening day of 2022.

Walsall striker Conor Wilkinson has been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two January Goal of the Month award.

The 27-year-old's dramatic late equaliser during the Saddlers' three-all draw against Newport County on New Year's Day is up for the award.

Conor Wilkinson – WALSALL v Newport County – 1st January
Deep into injury-time, Wilkinson had no time to lose. Three juggling touches hooked the ball deftly away from a defender, and an instant right-foot volley secured a 95th-minute equaliser.

Elliott Nevitt – TRANMERE ROVERS v Scunthorpe United – 8th January
Timing a volley as the ball takes an age to drop is an art form which Nevitt has clearly perfected. He waited just long enough to send a perfectly placed shot into the top corner.

Nicky Featherstone – HARTLEPOOL UNITED v Stevenage – 22nd January
The 33-year-old Featherstone had managed just 18 goals in 426 previous league games, yet you wouldn’t know it from this aesthetically beguiling strike from the edge of the area.
