Crackers' cracking goal puts him up for another award

Crackers' cracking goal puts him up for another award

Michael Jacobs may have missed out on Sky Bet's Player of the Month award to Portsmouth's Brett Pitman, but he could still yet save some grace.

The 25-year-old's superb strike in the 1-0 win over his former club Northampton Town has earned him a nomination for the September Goal of the Month award.

Jacobs faces competition from Bradford City defender Tony McMahon and Fleetwood United striker Devante Cole.

McMahon's free-kick in the 1-0 win at Northampton and Cole's thunderous volley in a 1-4 defeat to Portsmouth will provide tough competition for Latics' playmaker.

Voting closes on Tuesday 10 October and the winner will be announced on Friday 13 October.
