Shortlisting Evans' goal, EFL sponsors Sky Bet wrote: "Evans defied the laws of geometry as he sprinted across the pitch to a dropping ball, yet somehow caught it so exquisitely on the volley that it flew at a right angle into the bottom corner."

Voting takes place on the official EFL twitter pages, with the poll opening at 10am on Friday and running until Monday, April 19.

The winner will be announced next Friday (April 23).
