Preston North End's Tom Barkhuizen has been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship goal of the month award.

Barkhuizen's superb curling strike in the 3-2 derby victory over Blackburn Rovers is in the voting together with goals from Derby County's Graeme Shinnie and Hull City striker Tom Eaves.

His goal capped a fantastic fightback from North End in the derby clash, Rovers having raced into a 2-0 lead.

Running on to a pass from Alan Browne on the left-hand side of the box, Barkhuizen opened up his body and curled a right-footed shot over Rovers keeper Christian Walton into the far corner.
