Crystal Palace fan's cheeky goal of the month competition goes viral

As things stand, Crystal Palace are the only club in the top nine levels of the English football pyramid to have both no league goals and no points to their name this season.

As such, Palace supporters' group Five Year Plan found they were a little short on filler while compiling their Goal of the Month poll, with just one goal suitable for inclusion.

That goal -- the only one scored by a Palace player throughout the entire month of September -- was Bakary Sako's winner against Huddersfield in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

While the close-range header is hardly a screamer that will hardly live long in the memory of most fans, it certainly looks like it's got a decent chance of winning, even if it is only by default.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
