Football fans have been given a New Year treat with the launch of the latest Johnstone's Paint Trophy Ultimate Finish competition.

Five net-busting strikes from the four Area Semi-Final matches have been shortlisted as the battle to find the best goal of the round begins.

Peterborough United are well represented with their trio of goal-scorers in the 3-0 victory over Newport County - Kgosi Ntlhe, Grant McCann and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing - all nominated.
