Leeds United winger Gjanni Alioski has won the Sky Bet Championship’s goal of the month award for his stunning, match-killing finish at Nottingham Forest.

The Macedonia international – Leeds’ summer signing from Lugano – sealed a 2-0 win at the City Ground with a low, 20-yard strike on 87 minutes, his first goal for the Elland Road club.

The effort rounded off an outstanding first month in which Leeds went seven games unbeaten and finished August inside the Championship’s top three.

Alioski said: “I’m delighted to receive the award, especially as this was my first month in English football.

“However, we are a team at Leeds United and scoring the goal would not be possible without the hard work and dedication from my team-mates. I hope to score many more goals for Leeds, but this goal and this award is very special.”

Meanwhile, Sky Sports has announced that it will televise Leeds’ visit to Cardiff City on Tuesday, September 26.

This fixture has taken on sudden significance with United at the top of the table and Cardiff a point behind in second.
