Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week 28/04/14 - 04/05/14

6 May 2014

After the conclusion of the weekend'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 best XI and a manager from the week's Sky Bet Football League matches:

Goalkeeper: Ian McLoughlin (Newport County)

With Newport County drawing 1-1 against title hopefuls Rochdale, the Exiles stopper saved an 83rd-minute penalty before watching Kevin Feely snatch what seemed an unlikely victory at the other end.

Defender: Paul Caddis (Birmingham City)

Birmingham looked destined for Sky Bet League 1 on Saturday before Caddis popped up at the death to make it 2-2 against Bolton Wanderers, securing their Sky Bet Championship status.

Defender: Sam Ricketts (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

Wolves skipper Ricketts netted the first goal in his side's 3-0 win against Carlisle United on Saturday, setting them on their way to achieving a new all-time League 1 record points haul of 103.

Defender: Adam Dugdale (Crewe Alexandra)

Crewe recorded a surprise 2-1 success against Play-Off semi-finalists Preston North End, and Dugdale opened the scoring in the match - his first of the season.

Midfielder: Danny Hollands (Portsmouth)

Danny Hollands ended the season with a bang by netting a hat-trick for Portsmouth against Plymouth Argyle, although it wasn't good enough for three points as the the Pilgrims equalised late on to make it 3-3.

Midfielder: Sam Wood (Wycombe Wanderers)

Wycombe Wanderers secured their Football League status in the most dramatic of circumstances and Sam Wood played a significant role by scoring the first of their three goals at Torquay United.

Midfielder: Callum Harriott (Charlton Athletic)

Callum Harriot hadn't scored a league goal prior to this week but the Charlton man remarkably finished the season on five. He scored twice in the 3-1 success against Watford before grabbing a hat-trick against Blackpool on Saturday.

Midfielder: Gary Roberts (Chesterfield)

Chesterfield came from behind to beat Fleetwood Town 2-1 to lift the Sky Bet League 2 trophy and Gary Roberts completed the turnaround with a fine curling effort in the 55th minute.

Midfielder: Danny Ward (Huddersfield Town)

Huddersfield's Danny Ward scored his first professional hat-trick on Saturday as the Terriers triumphed 4-1 at Watford.

Striker: Rudy Gestede (Blackburn Rovers)

April's Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month signed off his season in style by bagging a brace in Blackburn's thrilling 4-3 win against Wigan Athletic.

Striker: Wes Thomas (Rotherham United)

Thomas fired a brace for Rotherham at Swindon Town in their 2-1 victory, to ensure the Millers go into their Play-Off Semi-Final meeting with Preston North End with the wind in their sails.

Manager: Paul Cook (Chesterfield)

Trailing 1-0 to Fleetwood at half-time, Chesterfield manager Paul Cook inspired his team to a second-half comeback to win 2-1 and clinch the Sky Bet League 2 title.
