Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week 17/03/14 - 23/03/14

24 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 3-4-3 best XI and a manager from the week's Sky Bet Football League matches:

Goalkeeper: Adam Collin (Rotherham United)

The 29-year-old stopper was on top form on Saturday against Peterborough United, making two crucial saves to keep a clean sheet and preserve all three points with a 1-0 scoreline.

Defender: Steve Cook (Bournemouth)

Cook helped Bournemouth keep a clean sheet at Barnsley on Saturday before popping up late on to score the Cherries' winner.

Defender: Haydn Hollis (Notts County)

Notts County gave their fight for survival a significant boost with a 4-1 win against Carlisle United and Hollis was key to the result, with the defender scoring twice.

Defender: Tommy Smith (Ipswich Town)

Defender Smith helped Ipswich keep one of only three away clean sheets in the Sky Bet Championship, at Brighton and Hove Albion, and he netted their first goal to help the Tractor Boys on their way to a 2-0 victory.

Midfielder: Craig Bryson (Derby County)

Derby recorded their biggest win against Nottingham Forest since 1898 on Saturday - 5-0 - and that result was largely thanks to Craig Bryson, who netted a hat-trick.

Midfielder: Jobi McAnuff (Reading)

The Royals captain inspired his side to three points by scoring both of their goals in a 2-1 victory against Birmingham City. They were his first league goals in over two years.

Midfielder: James Henry (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

It was a lively week for midfielder Henry as he bagged Wolves' goal in their 2-1 midweek defeat to Crawley Town, before scoring one and setting up the other in their 2-0 success at Sheffield United on Saturday.

Midfielder: Jamie Allen (Rochdale)

Allen played a pivotal role in Rochdale's two wins over the week, against Northampton Town and Wycombe Wanderers. He put in an impressive display for the Dale against the Cobblers before netting a superb volley against the Chairboys.

Striker: Ishmael Miller (Yeovil Town)

Two goals against Wigan Athletic in a thrilling 3-3 midweek draw, and a goal in a 2-2 draw with Bolton Wanderers on Saturday is enough for Miller to make our Team of the Week, despite missing a penalty in the latter match.

Striker: Chuks Aneke (Crewe Alexandra)

The Arsenal loanee got on the scoresheet twice for the Alex at the weekend in their 3-1 win at Gillingham. He now has 16 goals this season.

Striker: Reuben Reid (Plymouth Argyle)

Play-Off chasing Argyle collected four points over their two League 2 games last week and striker Reid was instrumental in doing so, scoring all three of their goals - two against Chesterfield on Tuesday and one against Accrington Stanley on Saturday.

Manager: Paul Tisdale (Exeter City)

Tisdale's struggling Exeter City hadn't won a home match since 5th October before beating Fleetwood Town 3-0 on Saturday, and that result lifted them up to 17th in the Sky Bet League 2 table.
