Forest Green Rovers forward is up for the League Two goal of the month for December and fans can vote to ensure he wins.

The 23-year-old, who narrowly missed out on being named player of the month in League Two, netted a superb hat-trick in FGR's Boxing Day win over Newport County.

It is his outrageous second goal that is up for the award as he fired home a free-kick from 30 yards out over a hapless Joe Day in the Newport goal.

Williams is up against Yoann Arquin of Yeovil Town and Wes Thomas of Grimsby Town.

The winners of the Sky Bet EFL Goals of the Month are chosen by a fan poll and you can vote for Williams now HERE.

The shortlist for the poll is decided by a judging panel following suggestions from supporters via Twitter. 

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; Sky Bet Sponsorship Manager Michael Holinski and EFL Senior Media Manager Rob Meaden.

To suggest a goal to be considered for future Sky Bet Goal of the Month awards, fans can tweet details of their nominated goal to @SkyBet using #SkyBetGotM.

Here is what has been said about each goal:

Yoann Arquin – YEOVIL TOWN v Northampton Town – December 22

With his side trailing in the final minute, Arquin decided it was time to chest down a bouncing ball and strike the dreamiest volley of his career in off the underside of the bar.

George Williams – Newport County v FOREST GREEN ROVERS – December 26

Williams’ free-kick was so far out from the Newport goal, it was almost over the border in England. So perfectly was it struck that no goalkeeper in either country could have saved it.

Wes Thomas – Port Vale v GRIMSBY TOWN – December 26

The sign of a striker in form is that he knows what he is going to do before anyone else on the pitch. To be precise, a jink inside and an arrowhead of a shot into the far top corner.

Voting is open from 6am on, with voting closing on Monday, January 14, and all winners will be announced on Friday, January 18.
