Blackpool goal hero Ellis Simms warns: We must not lose focus now

The winger lashed home high into the roof of the net to hand the Seasiders a vitally important three points against their promotion rivals at the Stadium of Light.

It helped Pool complete a league double over the Black Cats, who they had also beaten 1-0 at Bloomfield Road just 10 days earlier.

Kaikai thundered home from 25 yards after Luke Garbutt's corner had only been partially cleared towards the edge of the box.

There was still plenty of work to do for the 25-year-old, but he rifled home and almost took the net off in the process as he bagged his seventh goal of the season.

Callum Elder's strike for Hull City against Northampton Town and Joe Powell's effort for Burton Albion against Portsmouth have also been nominated for the EFL's monthly award.

The winner of the award will be decided by a fan poll on social media, which will remain open until Monday, May 10.

The winning goal will then be announced on Friday, May 14.

Nominees are decided by the EFL's judging panel, which comprises of Sky Sports' expect Don Goodman, Sky Bet sponsorship executive Matt Goodwin and the EFL's media officer Billie Marshall.

Kaikai's Blackpool teammate Dan Ballard, meanwhile, has missed out on winning the EFL's League One player of the month award.

Hull City striker Josh Magennis took the trophy instead, while his manager Grant McCann claimed the manager of the month award.
