City's Eliot Goldthorp has been nominated for the League Football Education's August Goal of the Month. 

Goldthorp has earned the nomination for his strike in the Bantams under-18 side's clash with Chesterfield - on August 17.

Picking the ball up 30 yards from goal, the youngster drove forward before unleashing an unstoppable drive which flew into the top corner.

The midfielder - who has made four appearances for City’s senior team - put his side 2-1 up with the goal, shortly before the match was abandoned - due to a serious head injury.

Goldthorp will be up against a further seven nominees from across England’s academy leagues.

City supporters have until 12.00pm on Friday September 20 to back Goldthorp - via the official LFE website - and can cast their vote by CLICKING HERE.

Nominees in full:

- Coree Wilson - LUTON TOWN v Northampton Town

- Richard Afrane-Kesey - CHARLTON ATHLETIC v Hull City

- Harry Kavanagh - PORTSMOUTH v AFC Bournemouth

- Charlie O’Connell - PETERBOROUGH UNITED v Southend United
