Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week 10/02/14 - 16/02/14

17 February 2014

After the conclusion of the week'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 3-5-2 best XI and a manager from the week's Sky Bet Football League matches:

Goalkeeper: David Forde (Millwall)

Millwall picked up a couple of 1-1 draws during the week, at Yeovil Town on Tuesday and at home to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, in two Sky Bet Championship relegation battles. Forde picked up the man of the match accolade in that tie at the Glovers, before saving a penalty when 1-0 down against Bolton.

Defender: John McCombe (York City)

McCombe, who signed for the Sky Bet League 2 club during the January transfer window, bagged a brace and assisted in keeping a clean sheet as the Minstermen ran out 4-0 winners at Plymouth Argyle.

Defender: Joe Davis (Port Vale)

Davis, one half of Vale's central defensive partnership alongside Jack Grimmer, was a commanding figure as the Sky Bet League 1 side registered four points this week, thanks to two clean sheets.

Defender: Marco Cassetti (Watford)

Watford earned maximum points during the week courtesy of two 1-0 victories. Cassetti was instrumental in defence during those matches, helping the Hornets climb the Championship table.

Midfielder: James Coppinger (Doncaster Rovers)

Coppinger will celebrate 10 years at Doncaster this May, and he further cemented his place in the club's folklore with a brace on Saturday against fellow Championship strugglers Barnsley.

Midfielder: Gareth Evans (Fleetwood Town)

This week saw a return of four points for the Cod Army and that was largely thanks to the clinical Gareth Evans. The midfielder scored with his right foot and his head as they beat basement club Northampton Town, 2-0.

Midfielder: Alan Judge (Brentford)

Brentford overcome Crewe Alexandra 3-1 on Saturday to remain top of the League 1 table. Judge, on loan from Blackburn Rovers, smashed in two belters to ensure a 16th win in 19 games for the leaders.

Midfielder: Michael Jacobs (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

Wolves remain two points behind Brentford, thanks to a 2-0 win over Notts County. Jacobs, pushing forward from midfield, netted a brace for Kenny Jackett's promotion-chasers.


Midfielder: Jay O'Shea (Chesterfield)

League 2 leaders Chesterfield were drawing 1-1 with second-bottom Torquay United before two goals in the final 10 minutes from O'Shea rescued three points for the Spireites, to them three points clear at the summit.

Striker: Nick Proschwitz (Barsnley)

Doncaster v Barnsley could have been renamed Coppinger v Proschwitz. The Tykes' front man had given his side the lead before Coppinger's brace. Proschwitz was then frustrated by Sam Johnstone in the Rovers goal, but eventually found the net for a second time with one minute remaining for a share of the spoils.

Striker: Sam Baldock (Bristol City)

Four points represented a big week for Bristol City who stunned Leyton Orient 3-1 on Tuesday before a 2-2 stalemate with Tranmere Rovers on Saturday. In those five Robins' goals, Baldock scored twice and provided one assist.

Manager: Nigel Clough (Sheffield United)

Although not in Sky Bet Football League action this week, Clough deserves special mention for leading his League 1 side into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup thanks to a 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest. The Blades have now overcome two Premier League sides and one Championship club on their way to the last eight.
