Shola Ameobi's strike in his final appearance for Bolton has been voted as January's Goal of the Month by Burnden Aces readers.

Ameobi, whose short-term deal came to an end at the conclusion of the game against MK Dons, latched on to a long ball from Dean Moxey before cutting inside two defenders and slotting the ball into the bottom corner of the net.

The former Newcastle United forward, who had offered but was denied the opportunity to play for free under a new contract, joins our end-of-season vote, after seeing off competition from Gary Madine's tap-in at Sheffield Wednesday and Darren Pratley's winner against Eastleigh in the FA Cup third-round replay.
