Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week

19 October 2015

After last week's international break, it was back to a full Football League schedule for us to select our latest Team of the Week.

A number of fine displays across the three divisions made this a tough one but, with assistance from fans on social media, we've narrowed it down to these 11 players and manager...

Goalkeeper: Jesse Joronen (Stevenage)

Well, this wasn't a difficult one! Joronen played his part in Stevenage's Sky Bet League 2 success over Wycombe Wanderers, but not in the way you probably expect.

The on-loan Fulham man opened the scoring for Teddy Sheringham's men with a long clearance, and his side held on for a 2-1 triumph.

Defender: Donervon Daniels (Wigan Athletic)

Wigan romped to a 5-0 victory over Colchester United in Sky Bet League 1 and a host of players impressed.

@football_league Donervon Daniels and Will Grigg, both scored twice and Daniels is a CB 👍🏻

However, none more so than Daniels who, alongside helping the defence keep a clean sheet, found the net twice for an emphatic Latics.

Defender: Adam Webster (Portsmouth)

Portsmouth continued to keep the pressure on Plymouth Argyle in Sky Bet League 2 with a 1-0 win at Newport County.

The fixture gave Academy graduate Webster the chance to shine in his first league start of the season, and the 20-year-old grasped the opportunity with both hands, putting in an assured display at the heart of the defence.

Defender: Ian Evatt (Chesterfield)

Evatt grabbed the winning goal as Chesterfield picked up a fine victory at Sky Bet League 1 high-flyers Walsall.

The central defender powered home a back-post header to double their advantage on the day, and that proved to be crucial as the Spireites prevented a late Saddlers' surge to win 2-1.

Midfielder: Bobby Grant (Fleetwood Town)

Two goals and an assist for Bobby Grant helped Fleetwood cruise to a 4-0 victory over Burton Albion in Sky Bet League 1.

The winger impressed throughout, with him and Jamie Proctor being singled out for praise by manager Steven Pressley, who celebrated his first win since taking charge of the Cod Army.

Midfielder: Alex Gilliead (Carlisle United)

On-loan Newcastle youngster Gilliead scored his first senior goal and produced a fine display as Carlisle recorded a 1-0 win over Exeter City.

What a win! What a team performance! Buzzing to have scored my first senior goal and get the win! Fans were unreal! Thanks for the messages!

The 19-year-old struck the match-winning goal in the 77th minute, coolly slotting home after good work from Derek Asamoah, to give the Cumbrians all three points.

Midfielder: Ben Reeves (Milton Keynes Dons)

Reeves bagged a brace as Milton Keynes defeated Blackburn Rovers 3-0 in the Sky Bet Championship.

The 23-year-old coolly slotted home a penalty to set the Dons on their way, and he rounded off the scoring with a neat finish after cutting in from the right-hand side.

Midfielder: Alan Judge (Brentford)

Judge netted twice to give Lee Carsley his maiden managerial victory at Brentford, and the first of the Irishman's goals was simply stunning.

Just 67 seconds of the Bees' clash with Rotherham had passed when the ball dropped to Judge outside the box, and he cushioned a volley back beyond the helpless Millers keeper, before doubling his tally with a second-half header.

Forward: Shaun Miller (Morecambe)

Miller makes an appearance in our Team of the Week for the second time in succession, having scored another brace for Morecambe.

After going behind against AFC Wimbledon, Miller won and scored a penalty before firing home a long-range effort to put the Shrimps ahead, in a game which they went on to win 5-2.

Forward: Andre Gray (Burnley)

Gray struck both goals for Burnley as they defeated Bolton Wanderers 2-0 to move up to fifth in the Sky Bet Championship table.

The Clarets front man showed his poaching prowess, reacting quickest to a rebound to put his side in front, and he added a well-taken second to clinch the points.

Forward: Chris Martin (Derby County)

Martin put in a superb forward display on Sunday afternoon when Derby defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-2 in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

The striker scored a sublime first goal and bravely nodded home a second. He missed out on the matchball after seeing his penalty saved, but the Scottish international was more than pleased with the Rams' performance.

Manager: Steve Cotterill (Bristol City)

In his 100th game in charge, Cotterill guided his side to a much-needed first home win of their Sky Bet Championship campaign

Cotterill's charges did him proud by defeating Nottingham Forest 2-0 at Ashton Gate, with Aaron Wilbraham particularly impressive with a two-goal haul.
