Top of The Shots: Best SAFC Goals From Right Midfield

We look for our last midfielder to line up in our 'Best Goal Scored Eleven' by taking a look at memorable strikes by our right wingers.

Nothing beats a winger who gets at the full backs, taking them on and getting a good cross into the box.

We all love their flair, opening up a bit of space so they can do something magical.

Sometimes, they also chip in and score some top, memorable goals that we'll saviour for years to come.

We've scanned through the years to find some of the best of goals scored by those playing on the right for you to pick your favourite from.

Featuring two of the greatest goals ever to be scored by the lads at the Stadium of Light, this week's edition is packed with top goals all worthy to be included into our team.

The winner will then join Bolo Zenden, Kieran Richardson, Nedum Onuoha, Gary Bennett, Andy Melville, Mart Poom and last weeks' highest voted two, David Vaughan & Lee Cattermole in our best goal scored eleven!

Watch them all and pick the best:

The contenders:

Liam Lawrence v Fulham

Back in January 2006, Liam Lawrence - who is another player who could comfortably have a ‘best goal scored' competition all on his own - opened the scoring at Craven Cottage within 7 minutes with this rocket of a volley. In short, this goal is absolutely tremendous.

Steed Malbranque v Hull City

Perhaps the most gifted player to play for the lads since our return to the Premiership, the little Belgian scored his first and only goal for the club with this cracker in a 4-1 win at the KC Stadium.

Daryl Murphy v Wigan

A surprise inclusion in this position, but after a number of switches and substitutions, Murph found himself on the right of midfield when Andy Reid teed him up with one of the greatest assists in the SOL's history so far. He complimented the pass by scoring one of the greatest goals the stadium will also see.

Nicky Summerbee v Charlton

In such an agonising loss at Wembley, Nicky's goal in extra time is fondly remembered. It's such a shame this powerful drive wasn't the winner, however it was still a great strike nonetheless.

Carlos Edwards v Burnley

From the banks of the wear, Carlos smashed us into the lead and effectively the Premiership with this, well, simply indescribable counter attacking strike.

Adam Johnson v Man City

In a toss up between his run and strike against Newcastle and this one versus his former employers, we've picked his goal that surprised the England no.1, just squirming past him into the net.

That's all your choices. Choose your favourite and vote for it below.

Remember to come back next week as our selection process comes to an end as we bring you a bumper package of the greatest strikes scored by our forwards.
