Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week 03/03/14 - 09/03/14

10 March 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 4-4-2 best XI and a manager from the week's Sky Bet Football League matches:

Goalkeeper: Josh Lillis (Rochdale)

Dale were down to 10 men away at Bury for almost 50 minutes on Friday night but Lillis denied the Shakers time and time again to pick up the Man of the Match award and earn his side a goalless draw.

Defender: Alan Dunne (Millwall)

Dunne was one of four changes for Millwall at the weekend, with Ian Holloway getting his tactics spot on. The right-back was a stand-out performer as the Lions won 1-0 away at high-flying Derby County for just their second victory in 16 games.

Defender: Ben Chorley (Portsmouth)

The Portsmouth captain was a leader at the back for Pompey who kept two clean sheets during the week; away at table-toppers Chesterfield on Monday and at home to Cheltenham on Saturday.

Defender: Mark Roberts (Fleetwood Town)

Roberts was at the heart of a Cod Army defence that kept two clean sheets this week, against Newport County and Torquay United. In the latter game, he provided two crucial blocks in quick succession as Fleetwood won 1-0.

Defender: Zander Diamond (Northampton Town)

Diamond shone at the heart of the Cobblers' defence, as they grabbed a valuable point away at high-flying Scunthorpe United. The on-loan defender grabbed an equalising goal before helping the 10-men see out the match with the score at 1-1.

Midfielder: Lee Molyneux (Accrington Stanley)

Molyneux scored a first-half hat-trick as struggling Stanley shocked Sky Bet League 2 leaders Chesterfield by holding a 3-0 lead at the break. Down to 10 men, they eventually won 3-1 at the Crown Ground.

Midfielder: Danny Swanson (Peterborough United)

The Scotsman put in a match-winning performance for the Posh as they beat Crewe Alexandra 4-2 on Saturday. Swanson provided an assist for Nicky Ajose, before scoring their third in an all-round dominant display.

Midfielder: Ravel Morrison (Queens Park Rangers)

On-loan Morrison hit a vital brace for QPR in their 2-0 win at Birmingham City to record a first win in six for Harry Redknapp's side.

Midfielder: Jimmy Smith (Stevenage)

Smith played all 180 minutes for Boro this week as they picked up four points. In their 3-1 win over Tranmere Rovers on Saturday, he scored the first with a neat finish and was also involved in the build-up to his side's second.

Striker: Danny Graham (Middlesbrough)

Danny Graham ended a barren spell for Middlesbrough as he netted their first goal in over 700 minutes of football with a first-half strike against Ipswich Town. He slotted another to complete a double.

Striker: Ismael Miller (Yeovil Town)

Yeovil are now just two points away from safety in the Sky Bet Championship and that is largely thanks to striker Miller. He scored both of the Glovers' goals in their 2-0 home success against Sheffield Wednesday.

Manager: Uwe Rosler (Wigan Athletic)

Manchester City had won 20 of their 23 home matches this season, but Wigan Athletic - inspired by former Citizen Rosler - went 2-0 up at the Etihad in the FA Cup at the weekend. They went on to win 2-1 and join Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Barcelona as away successors at City this season.
