City frontman Lee Novak has been nominated for the 2021 Mitre Goal of the Season - for his spectacular overhead kick away to Grimsby Town on Tuesday 22 December 2020. 

Taking Callum Cooke's cross neatly on his chest, Novak flung himself backwards while striking a looping volley into the far corner - over a stranded James McKeown. 

The goal gave City a 1-0 lead at Blundell Park, in an eventual 2-1 victory over the Mariners. 

A prestigious, annual award, the Mitre Goal of the Season collects a shortlist of stunning efforts from over the course of a season - across all three EFL divisions. 

Novak is up against Alex Mowatt of Barnsley, Frazier Campbell of Huddersfield Town, Grant Leadbitter of Sunderland and Jamal Lowe of Swansea City. 

The winner will be revealed at the eagerly-anticipated 2021 EFL Awards on Thursday April 29 - which will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Football from 7.30pm. 

The annual EFL Awards celebrate and recognise the continued efforts and achievements of clubs, players and individuals during what has been an incredibly challenging season for everyone.
