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: Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester City)

Leicester City 'keeper Schmeichel was at the heart of the Foxes' equaliser in their 1-1 draw at home to Yeovil Town on Tuesday, before keeping a clean sheet away at Burnley on Saturday as they moved six points clear at the summit of the Sky Bet Championship.

Defender: Nathan Pond (Fleetwood Town)

Pond was named Man of the Match in Fleetwood's 3-1 success over Bristol Rovers in midweek, before he played a key role in the Cod Army's clean sheet in a 0-0 draw with Rochdale.

Defender: James Tavernier (Rotherham United)

Full-back Tavernier netted two goals in an impressive display as Rotherham beat Bristol City 2-1 on Saturday, coming after helping to keep a clean sheet in a brilliant 3-0 victory over Brentford.

Defender: James Jennings (Mansfield Town)

Jennings scored twice in Mansfield's 4-2 victory at Hartlepool United in midweek, scoring from close range before a fine free-kick.

Midfielder: Luke Howell (Degnham and Redbridge)

Howell's fourth goal of the season was the difference with his late strike securing a 1-0 victory for the Daggers at home to Oxford on Saturday - that result coming after a 0-0 draw with Accrington Stanley.

Midfielder: Dale Jennings (Barnsley)

It was a big week for Barnsley with two away wins - 3-1 at Reading and 4-1 at Yeovil Town - with Jennings netting once in each game. His first, at Reading, was a net-busting stunner from 30 yards.

Midfielder: Will Hayhurst (York City)

Hayhurst's goal secured a sixth straight win for York on Tuesday night, which they backed up with a draw at home to Burton Albion to continue their Play-Off push.

Midfielder: Albert Adomah (Middlesbrough)

Adomah scored three of Boro's four goals this week, as a 2-2 draw at Huddersfield Town and a 2-0 victory at Brighton and Hove Albion secured four points for Aitor Karanka's men.

Murray netted three goals in the week for Notts County, scoring twice at Crewe Alexandra and once at home to Colchester United as the Magpies picked up six valuable points.

Striker: Lewis Grabban (Bournemouth)
