Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week 14/04/14 - 21/04/14

22 April 2014

After the conclusion of the Easter weekend's Sky Bet Football League matches, we've picked out a squad of the best performers from the divisions to make the Team of the Week.

Here's our best XI and a manager from the week's Sky Bet Football League matches:

Goalkeeper: Ben Garratt (Crewe Alexandra)

Garratt made a number of fine stops against Shrewsbury Town on Friday and kept a clean sheet at home to Colchester United on Monday as Crewe picked up four points from their weekend endeavours to move out of the Sky Bet League 1 relegation zone.

Defender: Ben Coker (Southend United)

Coker, fresh from signing a new two-year deal last week, played all 180 minutes across Friday and Monday as he helped Southend keep two clean sheets and pick up six-points to strengthen their grip on a Play-Off place in Sky Bet League 2.

Defender: Paul Quinn (Doncaster Rovers)

Reduced to 10 men, centre-back Quinn was in imperious form on Monday afternoon when he helped Doncaster draw 0-0 away to fellow Sky Bet Championship strugglers Millwall.

Defender: Adam Lockwood (Oldham Athletic)

Lockwood only arrived at Boundary Park in January, but the defender has been instrumental in Oldham's seven-game unbeaten run, helping the Latics to two clean sheets over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Defender: John McCombe (York City)

McCombe has played every minute for York in a sequence of nine clean sheets in their past 10 matches. Two more clean sheets over the weekend was made possible by McCombe's block on the line from Hallam Hope in Monday's 1-0 victory over Bury.

Midfielder: Paul Gallagher (Preston North End)

Gallagher's second-half hat-trick at Deepdale on Monday inspired his team to a 5-2 victory over Shrewsbury Town, with North End looking to build momentum heading into the League 1 Play-Offs.

Midfielder: Josh Morris (Fleetwood Town)

The on-loan Blackburn Rovers midfielder scored two winning goals in four days; the second in a 2-1 victory at Cheltenham Town and the only strike in a 1-0 success over Wycombe Wanderers.

Striker: Matt Derbyshire (Nottingham Forest)

Derbyshire may not have picked up a hat-trick in one game, but he did score all three of Forest's goals as they won 1-0 over Birmingham City and 2-0 at Leeds United. Those six points have re-ignited Forest's Play-Off bid, having gone 12 games without a win prior to those two matches.

Striker: Marvin Sordell (Charlton Athletic)

Relegation-threatened Charlton were 2-0 down inside eight minutes at Sheffield Wednesday on Monday in the Championship, but Sordell struck in the 10th, 43rd and 63rd minutes to help his side to all three points.

Striker: Kieran Agard (Rotherham United)

A profitable Easter weekend saw Agard net four times for the Millers; a hat-trick at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday was followed by the winner at home to Port Vale on Monday after coming on as a substitute.

Striker: Nouha Dicko (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

Dicko became the first Wolves player to score a hat-trick since February 2009 with his three goals and an assist in a 6-4 win over Rotherham United on Friday before another assist helped Wolves win 3-1 at Leyton Orient on Monday.

Manager: Sean Dyche (Burnley)

Burnley were the fourth-favourites to be relegated from the Sky Bet Championship this season, but Dyche has spearheaded a magnificent campaign for the Clarets with promotion to the Premier League confirmed on Monday afternoon after their 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic.
