Sam Hoskins’ brilliant goal at Tranmere Rovers is up for the Sky Sports League Two Goal of the Season award.

The 26-year-old showed fantastic awareness and excellent technique to cleverly convert David Buchanan’s cross during February’s meeting at Prenton Park, sending a first-time flick looping over home stopper Scott Davies.

It proved to be the winning goal as Northampton ran out 2-1 victors over Micky Mellon’s Tranmere.

Hoskins faces competition from 11 other players for the award. They are: Danny Mayor, Nicky Maynard, Lee Frecklington, Matthew Dolan, Danny Grainger, Wes Thomas, George Williams, Shay McCartan, Illias Chair, Jamie Devitt and former Town player Hiram Boateng.
