Peterborough United have completed a clean sweep of Sky Bet League One awards for August.

Siriki Dembele’s superb solo strike against Luton Town has today (September 14) been announced as the winner of the goal of the month category in which the voting is done by fans.

And that honour comes to the ABAX Stadium hot on the heels of the manager of the month prize for Steve Evans and the player of the month award for Jason Cummings.

Dembele’s goal was scored at the ABAX Stadium on August 18. The Luton defence looked to have stopped his surging run by bringing him down but they reckoned without Dembele’s ability to play the ball on the floor, get up and scoop it home.

Other contenders were Dimitri Cavare of Barnsley, for his thunderous drive against Scunthorpe United, and Luke O’Neill of Gillingham, for a perfect free-kick against Burton Albion.
