Moussa scored a magnificent chip over Leyton Orient goalkeeper Jamie Jones in the 67th minute in what was Orient’s first defeat in the league this season.
After receiving the ball from Leon Clarke, Moussa took on a defender, completed a step-over before lifting the ball over a helpless Jones in the Orient goal with this outside of his right foot. (Video below, courtesy of James Littlewood.)
After a Football League panel pulled together the top ten strikes of last year following submissions from each of the 72 Football League clubs, the ten contenders for the award were then shown on Soccer AM and viewers’ votes decided the final five.
Moussa beat off competition from four other cracking goals, and could also have his name on next year’s shortlist already with his stunning goal to rescue a point at the death away to Preston last month!
The final five:
Paddy McCourt – Barnsley (v. Middlesbrough)
Jay Emmanuel-Thomas – Bristol City (v. Bristol Rovers)
Franck Moussa – Coventry City (v. Leyton Orient) winner
James Poole – Hartlepool United (v. Notts County)
Troy Deeney – Watford (v. Leicester City)
