Championship Team of the Week

29 October 2012

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

Craig Noone was on form for Cardiff City as they hit the summit of the npower Championship with a 4-0 win over Burnley and he makes the Team of the Week for his efforts.

The left winger was influential all afternoon for the Bluebirds and grabbed himself a goal in the final few minutes of the first half, firing home from 25 yards.

The midfield is made up of two other players who found the net at the weekend, as well as Hull City's Robert Koren who impressed in the Tigers' 2-1 win against Bristol City.

Lawrie Wilson, who is on the right wing, found the net in Charlton Athletic's 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Sheffield Wednesday's Ross Barkley scored twice to also make the Team.

The 18-year-old Everton loanee was pivotal for the Owls as they recorded a 3-0 victory over fellow-strugglers Ipswich Town.

Up top, Millwall's Chris Wood is paired alongside Middlesbrough's Scott McDonald; both players scoring twice in their respective matches.

Wood scored his first and Millwall's opener against Huddersfield Town in the 28th minute and added another in the 61st minute before the Lions went on to beat the Terriers 4-0.

McDonald's goals for the Boro, meanwhile, were vital, as they cancelled out Chung-Yong Lee's opener for Bolton Wanderers - giving Tony Mowbray's men all three points.

Millwall defender Shane Lowry is also included after his impressive display against Huddersfield.

Crystal Palace maintained their momentum despite Dougie Freedman's departure, beating Leicester City 2-1, and defender Peter Ramage makes the squad for his performance in the victory.

The former Newcastle United man scored on the half-hour mark to give the Palace a two-goal lead, adding to Damien Delaney's opener, and then remained defensively solid throughout.

Nottingham Forest's Greg Halford and Blackburn Rovers' Grant Hanley take the centre-back slots.

Halford impressed at both ends for Forest and helped himself to a goal in their 4-1 success away to Barnsley, while Hanley was vital for the Rovers as they kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 win over Watford.

Peterborough United stopper Robert Olejnik takes the spot in goal after he kept just his second clean sheet of the season in a 3-0 victory against Derby County.
