Championship Team of the Week

24 September 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.

Another dramatic weekend of npower Championship action has left places in the latest Team of the Week as hotly contested as ever.

Barnsley and Wolverhampton Wanderers are the most represented teams with three players each included after their results on Saturday - a 5-0 win at Birmingham City and a 2-0 win at Peterborough United respectively.

The three Tykes making the cut are defenders Scott Wiseman and Stephen Foster, along with striker Craig Davies.

Foster scored Barnsley's opening goal at St Andrew's and helped keep a clean sheet alongside his defensive colleague Wiseman, while front-man Davies smashed in an amazing four goals to take his tally for the season to eight.

The three Wolves in the Team of the Week are goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, and defensive duo Stephen Ward and Kevin Foley.

Wolves put themselves fifth in the table with their win at Peterborough and it was a result built on solid foundations with Ikeme, Ward and Foley keeping out the hosts at London Road.

The midfield has a South London feel with two representatives coming from Charlton Athletic, who went away to Ipswich Town and came home with a 2-1 victory.

The first of their goals came from Johnnie Jackson and he earns his place alongside Addicks colleague Salim Kerkar, both players putting in excellent performances at Portman Road.

Joining them is Mark Davies of Bolton Wanderers, who scored in his side's 2-1 win at Sheffield Wednesday, and Brighton and Hove Albion's Will Buckley; the Seagulls' creator-in-chief as they hit the top of the Championship with a 2-1 win at Millwall.

Barnsley's Davies may have scored four goals on Saturday but not far behind him on Sunday was Leicester City's David Nugent, who also makes the Team of the Week.

Nugent fired a hat-trick as Nigel Pearson's men made it four successive home wins with a 3-1 success over Hull City.
