Poll: Championship goal of the weekend; Norwich trio included while winger features twice

Norwich's Jonny Howson scores their first goal

Goals from Norwich City, Sheffield Wednesday, Burton Albion, Preston North End, Queens Park Rangers and Fulham players have made the shortlist.

Another fascinating weekend of action in the Championship saw a number of goals that would have left fans in awe. But which goal scored this weekend was the best? Before you get the chance to vote, here is a look at the contenders...

The first goal in our poll came from Friday night's game between Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham. Sam Winnall's header was certainly not a headline grabbing finish, but the stunning cross from Jack Hunt that led to the January signing opening his Owls account would not have looked out of place in the Premier League.

Burton Albion were handed a heavy defeat away at automatic promotion chasers Brighton, but they arguably scored the goal of the game as Michael Kightly made it two in two for him. His sumptuous free-kick gave David Stockdale no chance at all.

Aiden McGeady features twice on this week's poll having scored two brilliant goals in Preston's win over Brentford. The first was an excellent low drive from 25 yards into the bottom corner, while his second saw the winger demonstrate some wonderful close control before curling the ball into the net from just outside the box.

The most exhilarating game of the weekend was arguably Norwich's 5-1 win over Nottingham Forest. Three of the Canaries' goals were arguably good enough to win most goal of the month competitions. The first saw Jonny Howson channel his inner Paul Scholes to smash home a brilliant volley after a corner was cleared to him just outside the box.

Wes Hoolahan then stepped up with a strike arguably just as sweet from the best part of 35 yards, before Alex Pritchard rounded off the win with a great finish from around 20 yards out. 

QPR lost to Huddersfield but, like Burton, they perhaps grabbed the best goal of the fixture with Luke Freeman smashing the ball into the top corner from just inside the penalty area.

Finally, Denis Odoi helped Fulham come from 2-1 down against Wigan to secure all three points. The 35-yard strike levelled the scores with 20 minutes to go before they bagged a stoppage time winner.
