Josh Payne's stunning free-kick winner against Wycombe Wanderers is up for SkyBet League Two Goal of the Month award for February.

Payne's 30-yard wonder strike came in the 2-1 win at Adams Park. You can see the strike below.

The midfielder's strike is up against Paul Mullin's for Morecambe v Leyton Orient and Gary Roberts for Portsmouth against Carlisle United.

After the game Payne said: “I was ready, I was eager to take the free-kick as well.

“Hendo (Conor Henderson) stepped up next to me, he’s left-footed but I fancied the free-kick and it was nice it went in.

“I think Coxy (Dean Cox) fancied it as well, but it was my time to take the free-kick and luckily it went in!

“I don’t mind any free-kicks to be honest and I looked at that one and I fancied it."

The winners of the Sky Bet EFL Goals of the Month are chosen by a fan poll on skysports.com.
