Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week

11 August 2014

We pick out 11 top performers and a manager from the weekend's Sky Bet Football League matches

Goalkeeper: Trevor Carson (Cheltenham Town)

Carson was on top form against his former club Bury, denying Pablo Mills and Danny Mayor to help earn the Robins a 1-0 victory.

Defender: Josh Coulson (Cambridge United)

A perfect script was written on Saturday with Cambridge winning on their return to The Football League and their longest-serving player, Coulson, scoring the only goal of the game against Plymouth Argyle.

Defender: Reda Johnson (Coventry City)

Debutant Johnson may have given away a penalty on Saturday against Bradford City but the defender scored twice for the Sky Blues to earn his place in the Team of the Week.

Defender: Mark Little (Bristol City)

Former Peterborough United man Little had an impressive debut for Bristol City and set-up Aaron Wilbraham for his goal with a buccaneering run down the right.

Defender: Mark Beevers (Millwall)

Beevers, 24, was solid in the Millwall back line that kept a clean sheet against Leeds United. The former Sheffield Wednesday man also got the opening goal, converting Lee Martin's cross.

Midfielder: Giles Coke (Sheffield Wednesday)

The Owls produced one of the results of the day in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday, winning 1-0 at Brighton and Hove Albion, and midfielder Coke netted the only goal of the game with a fantastic long-range effort.

Midfielder: Jed Wallace (Portsmouth)

Portsmouth had to be patient for their equaliser at Exeter City but Wallace was the man on target, capping off an excellent display.

Midfielder: Yaser Kasim (Swindon Town)

Swindon were comfortable 3-1 winners against Scunthorpe United on Saturday and Kasim was a stand-out performer in central midfield.

Striker: James Hanson (Bradford City)

Forward Hanson proved his worth for the Bantams by heading in two goals against Coventry, including a last-minute winner, to help them to a 3-2 success.

Striker: Callum Wilson (Bournemouth)

It was a debut to remember for striker Callum Wilson after he scored twice against Huddersfield Town in a 4-0 victory. The 22-year-old missed a penalty but that didn't take the shine off his outstanding display.

Striker: James Collins (Shrewsbury Town)

Front man Collins has returned to the Shrews for a second spell and he started impressively, netting twice at AFC Wimbledon to earn them a 2-2 draw.

Manager: Paul Cook (Chesterfield)

Sky Bet League 1's result of the day on Saturday saw one of the division's new boys Chesterfield beat last season's beaten Play-Off Finalists Leyton Orient in their own backyard, so the manager in this week's Team of the Week is Spireites boss Paul Cook.
