League 1 Team of the Week

26 November 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 features the eleven top performing players from each division from this weekend's matches.

Luke Chadwick was the man in form for Milton Keynes Dons this weekend, scoring twice, as the Dons climbed to second in the npower League 1 table with a comprehensive 5-1 victory over Colchester United.

The former Manchester United midfielder opened the scoring in the 28th minute and scored his second, and the team's fourth, in the 64th minute to write his name into the npower League 1 Team of the Week.

Also netting a brace this weekend was Crewe Alexandra's Lauri Dalle Valle and Carlisle United's Mark Beck, and they take the two forward positions in the team.

Beck's brace gave the Cumbrians a two-goal lead in their eventual 3-1 win over Yeovil Town, while Dalle Valle scored the only two goals of the game in the Alex's 2-0 win over Crawley Town.

Another top performer in Crewe's win was defender Gregor Robertson and he takes his place at left-back in the team.

Also included in back-four is Leyton Orient's Mathieu Baudry, Milton Keynes Dons' Jon Otsemobor and Doncaster Rovers' Tommy Spurr.

Baudry scored the first goal of the game and was solid at the back in Orient's 2-0 win over Preston North End, Otsemobor was another goalscoring defender as he heading home a corner in the 61st minute for his first goal in over three years, while Tommy Spurr played a vital part in Doncaster's 4-0 victory over local rivals Scunthorpe United.

As Spurr provided a valiant performance at the back, David Cotterill did well on the right side of the Rovers' midfield, and got on the scoresheet just after the break.

On the opposite wing, Oldham Athletic's Jonathan Grounds is included. The 24-year-old scored the only goal of the game firing home after Matt Derbyshire's cross was parried, giving the Latics a 1-0 win over Shrewsbury Town.

Making up the squad's central midfield, alongside Chadwick, is Stevenage's Greg Tansey. Boro were 1-0 down to league leaders Tranmere Rovers before Tansey rounded off an impressive performance with a 90th-minute equaliser.

Finishing off the line-up is Notts County stopper Bartosz Bialkowski. The Polish goalkeeper made several key saves to keep Swindon Town at bay in the Magpies' 1-0 win.
