Sunderland midfielder Max Power has won the Sky Bet League One Goal of the Month winner for September.

His wonder strike in the win over MK Dons at the Stadium of Light collected 58 per cent of the public vote.

Power latched onto Charlie Wyke’s pass to crack home a first-time shot home from 25 yards.

He said: “I’m over the moon with it because I’ve never won an award like that before.

“It’s always nice to be recognised and all the more so because we earned the three points, because although personal accolades are great, it’s all about the team and picking up positive results.

“The game was fairly balanced at the time and it came out of nowhere, so when it hit the back of the net, it was a great buzz and a great feeling in front of 30,000 fans.

“It’s the type of moment you play football for and you can tell by my reaction what I thought about because I almost ended up on the gravel knee sliding.”
