Albion's midfielder was recognised for his superb strike against Bristol City.
Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Steve Sidwell is the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month winner for November, after receiving 43% of the public vote.
Sidwell showed incredible vision and faultless technique to hit a moving ball nearly 50 yards over the scrambling Richard O’Donnell in the Bristol goal.
Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said, “It was an incredibly strong month for goals in the Championship in November, but Sidwell’s effort rightly takes the crown.
“These are the type of goals that a player will score once or twice (if they're lucky!) in their career and Steve is bound to look back on this effort fondly when he hangs up his boots.”

Sidwell said, “I had spotted the keeper off his line earlier in the game, and thought I would try my luck the next chance I got.
“This was a very special goal for the whole team, in what had been a very tough week for the squad.
“We were all thinking about Anthony [Knockaert] in the build-up to the game, and wanted to make him and his family proud by bringing home the three points.
“Fortunately we managed to do that and I am honoured that we could pay tribute to him with the celebration after my goal.”
Sidwell beat off competition from Derby County’s Darren Bent and Sheffield Wednesday’s Fernando Forestieri.
