League 1 Team of the Week

28 August 2012

Each week the Official Football League website will bring you the Team of the Week. Produced by the Press Association, the Teams of the Week feature the eleven top performing players from each division from this weekend's matches.

Yeovil Town moved to the top of npower League 1 this weekend and they have four players in the Team of the Week after a 4-0 away win against Scunthorpe United.

The key to the Glovers' win was a strong backline and it's no surprise to see two of their defenders and their goalkeeper in the XI.

Luke Ayling and James McAllister fill the full-back roles, while Marek Stech, who kept his first clean sheet of the League 1 campaign, takes the slot between the sticks.

Ed Upson is the other Yeovil player in the Team and he played a pivotal role in keeping the Iron at bay, heading off the line to deny David Mirfin.

Joining the Glovers' duo at the back is Carlisle United's Danny Livesey, who scored for the Cumbrians in their 4-2 victory over Portsmouth, and Crawley Town's Kyle McFadzean, who makes the XI for the second successive week.

Coventry City's Carl Baker scored a 28th minute free-kick to make the Team of the Week, while two Matts complete the midfield - Swindon Town's Matt Ritchie and Shrewsbury Town's Matt Richards.

Ritchie scored the only goal of the game for the Robins against Milton Keynes Dons with a cross-shot that caught out Dons goalkeeper David Martin. Richards, meanwhile, played an important role for the Shrews as they picked up a valuable point against high-flying Tranmere Rovers.

The select team is completed by an all-Brentford front two who had an afternoon to remember against Crewe Alexandra.

Clayton Donaldson, a former Alex player, and Farid El Alagui scored two goals each as the Bees romped to a 5-1 win over the League 1 new boys.
