Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week 05/09/14 - 07/09/14

8 September 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 weekend's Sky Bet Football League matches:

Goalkeeper: Barry Roche (Morecambe)

Roche kept his third clean sheet of the season, pulling off a number of crucial saves in Morecambe's 0-0 draw at home to Cheltenham Town.

Defender: Ryan Haynes (Coventry City)

Haynes was instrumental at left-back in Coventry's return to the Ricoh Arena. The local lad assisted Frank Nouble's first-half winner, being rewarded with the Man of the Match award for his consistently threatening runs down the left.

Defender: Aden Flint (Bristol City)

Bristol City continued their fine unbeaten start to the season with a 2-0 home victory over Scunthorpe United. In addition to keeping a solid clean sheet, Flint also netted the opener for the Robins, marking the goal with an unusual foam roller celebration.

Defender: Aaron Martin (Yeovil Town)

Martin scored two first-half headers for Yeovil in their 3-1 win at Bradford City, his first goals for the Glovers and the first time he has found the back of the net since February 2012.

Midfielder: Abdulai Bell-Baggie (Tranmere Rovers)

Rovers might have gone down 3-2 at Accrington, but it was a fine afternoon on a personal note for Bell-Baggie who netted a brace in the second half.

Midfielder: Peter Vincenti (Rochdale)

Vincenti was also a double scorer from midfield on Saturday afternoon, netting Rochdale's second and third goals in a 4-0 thumping of Crawley Town. His first came from a Matt Done cutback before heading home 12 minutes later.

Midfielder: Jon Taylor (Peterborough United)

Taylor may not have scored in Posh's 3-1 win over Port Vale, but on his return from injury the winger provided the assist for Kyle Vassell's header in an energetic individual performance full of tricky, marauding runs on the counter-attack, earning him the Man of the Match accolade.

Midfielder: Brad Walker (Hartlepool United)

It's easy to forget that Walker is only 19, such is his composure and experience in the Pools engine room. His storming forward run to get on the end of Jack Compton's low cross helped Hartlepool to a 2-0 victory and in the process ended Shrewsbury Town's unbeaten start to the Sky Bet League 2 campaign.

Striker: Matt Tubbs (AFC Wimbledon)

Tubbs, fresh from claiming the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month Award for August, continued his purple patch with a double in a 4-4 thriller at Carlisle United. That moved the forward onto six goals for the campaign.

Striker: Marc Richards (Northampton Town)

Richards scored twice in the first half for Northampton, slotting home from a cross and netting a fine header, to secure all three points for the Cobblers in their 2-0 win at Dagenham & Redbridge.

Striker: Wes Fletcher (York City)

York were winless and unbeaten heading into the weekend, but after five straight draws they finally secured a victory thanks to Fletcher's brace. The striker put York 2-0 up after 15 minutes, and after seeing Stevenage come back to 2-2, he calmly slotted home from the spot to secure a 3-2 triumph at the Lamex Stadium.

Manager: James Beattie (Accrington Stanley)

Accrington took the lead before falling 2-1 behind at home to Tranmere Rovers in their quest for a first league win of the season. Beattie sent on Josh Windass when they were trailing, and Stanley scored twice in the final 12 minutes to pick up their first victory of the campaign.
