Goal Of The Month Result

Rui Fonte’s first goal for the Club was the best scored by Fulham in August, according to the Whites faithful.

Neeskens Kebano had put his side in front at Ipswich Town in the final match of the month, and early on in the second half he spun in the box and fired in a fierce shot that Bartosz Bialkowski parried away.

The Tractor Boys goalkeeper did well to seemingly push it away from the danger zone, with the ball dropping to the side of the six yard box, creating a very acute angle between itself and the goal.

However, that didn’t deter Fonte from taking the shot on, with the forward contorting his body shape magnificently to get the trajectory of his strike spot on, sending a wicked rising effort over Bialkowski at his near post and into the roof of the net.

37 per cent of Fulham fans voted for the Portuguese to win Goal of the Month, with Lucas Piazon taking both second and third place for his Wycombe Wanderers (30.2 per cent) and Reading (29.9 per cent) efforts, respectively.
