Last updated : 17 November 2017 By CNS Sport

Jordan Shipley's first goal for Coventry City's first team in the 3-0 win at Luton Town has seen the goal awarded the Sky Bet Goal Of The Month For League Two in October.

The midfielder from Leamington had not been on the pitch for long when he smashed a free kick high into the net, sparking wild scenes in the away end at Kenilworth Road.

Shipley's goal polled 47% of the vote and he told City's club website: “It’s lovely to get this award and great to be voted by the fans. I didn’t really think too much of it, just stepped up to it and hit it fairly well and it’s gone in the top corner.

“It’s definitely the best goal I’ve ever scored, the way it came about, against Luton, away from home, I couldn’t have imagined it any better.

“I’ve got to keep working hard, get in amongst it and take my chances when they come.”
