23 May 2014

The curtain will come down on the Sky Bet League 1 season this Sunday with the Play-Off Final at Wembley and, ahead of that game, the Sky Bet League 1 Team of the Season has been announced.

Two players who will be appearing at the national stadium have made the starting XI, chosen by Manish Bhasin, Leroy Rosenior and Mark Clemmit, all from BBC Sport's The Football League Show.

Leyton Orient winger Dean Cox has been selected at right-wing, while Rotherham United striker Kieran Agard has been chosen in one of the two forward positions.

Wolverhampton Wanderers, who won the Sky Bet League 1 title with 103 points, dominate the team with five of their players selected.

Cox, who scored one of Leyton Orient's three Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off goals against Peterborough United in the Semi-Finals, just edged out Rotherham's Ben Pringle to the right-sided midfield berth.

Rotherham are represented by Agard who has scored 26 goals so far this season ahead of the Final, including one in the Semi-Final second leg against Preston North End.

Leroy Rosenior said: "Agard has been really consistent and gives Steve Evans options because he can play in the wide areas as well as centrally. He is the sort of player managers love to have on their books."

Harry Maguire, the Sheffield United defender, has been chosen for a second year in a row.

Mark Clemmit said of Maguire: "He's a local lad and in that difficult first half of the season for Sheffield United he gave the fans something to be proud of."
