13 October 2014

We pick out 11 top performers and a manager from the week's Sky Bet Football League matches.

Goalkeeper: Luke McCormick (Plymouth Argyle)

Plymouth came under pressure against Tranmere, after taking a one-goal lead, but remained solid to record the only away clean sheet in Sky Bet League 2.

Defender: Joe Jacobson (Wycombe Wanderers)

Jacobson's stunning free-kick sealed three points for Wycombe at the Globe Arena and that moved the Chairboys to the summit of Sky Bet League 2.

Defender: Michael Harriman (Luton Town)

Harriman performed superbly on his debut, after joining Luton on loan last week, receiving a standing ovation from the Hatters faithful when he was substituted in injury time.

Defender: Michael Duckworth (Hartlepool United)

Full-back Duckworth put in a tireless display at Exeter and was involved in one of the Pools goals, sprinting down the right before crossing for Michael Woods to volley in.

Midfielder: Conor Hourihane (Barnsley)

Although Hourihane didn't find the net for the Barnsley against Bradford, the 23-year-old had a say in all three of the Tykes' goals amd was a shining light in midfield throughout the 90 minutes.

Midfielder: Marcus Maddison (Peterborough United)

Maddison has impressed since making the move from Gateshead and he was in fine form again on Saturday at Crawley. He capitalised on a Reds error to get himself on the scoresheet.

Midfielder: Chris Lines (Port Vale)

The Valiants were 4-1 winners against Yeovil on Saturday and Lines was a stand-out player in their midfield. The former Bristol Rovers man pulled the strings and grabbed a goal to cap a productive afternoon.

Midfielder: Mike Jones (Oldham Athletic)

Jones was another midfielder to notch on Saturday, firing in a long-range winner for the Latics against Walsall.

Striker: Adebayo Akinfenwa (AFC Wimbledon)

After eight goalless games at the start of the season, Bayo now has seven goals in his last six appearances having netted a brace at home to Bury on Saturday.

Striker: Ade Yusuff (Dagenham & Redbridge)

The former Chatham Town front man entered the fray at half-time against Accrington when Dagenham & Redbridge trailed 1-0. By the end of the match, he had his first two Football League goals and the Daggers had a much-needed three points on the board.

Striker: Kwesi Appiah (Cambridge United)

Appiah was the star of the show for Cambridge against Oxford on Saturday. The U's found themselves a goal down early on, but the Crystal Palace loanee hit a double to put them 2-1 in front before the break. They then ran riot in the second half to win 5-1.

Manager: Steve Cotterill (Bristol City)

The Manager of the Month curse didn't strike at Ashton Gate on Saturday as Cotterill's City stretched their lead at the top of Sky Bet League 1 to five points, with a thrilling 3-2 win against Chesterfield. The Robins are unbeaten in the league since March.
