Cardiff Ben Wilmot

Ben Wilmot wins October Goal of the Month

First team

Ben Wilmot's derby-day winner for Swansea City against Cardiff has been voted the club's goal of the month for October.

The defender marked his first league start for the Swans in memorable fashion as he arrived at the far post to head home Wayne Routledge's cross.

It was enough to give Steve Cooper's side the bragging rights in the first South Wales derby in over five-and-a-half years.

Wilmot's goal scooped 96 per cent of the vote, beating off competition from Andre Ayew's goals against Charlton and Stoke, as well as Yan Dhanda's equaliser at The Valley.

All those who voted went into a draw to win a Swans jersey signed by Ben, and James Fishlock is the winner.
