Adebayo Akinfenwa's outrageous strike against former club AFC Wimbledon has been shortlisted for the Sky Bet League 1 Goal of the Month for December.
The 39-year-old striker held off his marker with typical strength to enable him to chest down David Stockdale's deep free-kick, and then deliver an immaculately lobbed volley over keeper Nik Tzanev from 20 yards to level the scores at 1-1.

We're running out of words to describe this man.— Wycombe Wanderers (@wwfcofficial) December 13, 2021
A wonderful lobbed volley and he's up to 50 league goals as a #Chairboy.@daRealAkinfenwa: Wycombe Wanderers royalty.#WYCvAFCW pic.twitter.com/sBpvxYNBh1
The full shortlist is as follows (supplied by Sky Bet):
Adebayo Akinfenwa – WYCOMBE WANDERERS v AFC Wimbledon – 11th December
Only ‘The Beast’ could have scored this. Using his strength to hold off a defender, Akinfenwa chested the ball into space, ignored a sly tug and executed an outrageously conceived lob.
Teddy Bishop – Cheltenham Town v LINCOLN CITY – 11th December
If the Lincoln set-piece routine was pre-planned, no-one could have predicted the way Bishop cleverly thrust his right foot at the ball and directed a side-footed stab into the far top corner.
Daniel Udoh – Fleetwood Town v SHREWSBURY TOWN – 26th December
A goal of two contrasting elements. Josh Vela’s dogged persistence to drive through three tackles in midfield was a precursor to Udoh’s unstoppable, thumping shot into the top corner.
