Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week

21 September 2015

Another enthralling weekend of Football League action has passed, with plenty of players vying for a place in the Team of the Week.

With a little bit of help from fans on social media, here's 11 players and a manager to make up the latest line-up...

Goalkeeper: Jamie Jones (Colchester United)

Colchester earned a second successive win on Saturday, inflicting a first defeat of the season on Gillingham in Sky Bet League 1.

Goalkeeper Jones played a huge part in the 2-1 victory by saving Cody McDonald's penalty, which was his second spot-kick save in five days after denying Sheffield United's Billy Sharp from 12 yards in midweek.

Defender: Charlie Taylor (Leeds United)

Leeds bounced back from a first Sky Bet Championship defeat in midweek to record a 2-1 triumph at Milton Keynes Dons, with birthday boy Taylor inspirational in the win.

Brilliant birthday weekend with friends and family! Topped off with 3pts and a goal 🎉🎁

The full-back, who turned 20 on Friday, won the Whites a first-half penalty which was coolly converted by Chris Wood, and then doubled the lead with a fine angled drive into the far corner.

Defender: Nathan Cameron (Bury)

Bury secured a third straight victory on Saturday to move into the top six of Sky Bet League 1, with Cameron crucial to their success.

The Shakers' skipper was a rock at the back, and popped up to head home a 78th-minute winner as Bury continue to impress on their return to the division.

Defender: Harry Davis (Crewe Alexandra)

Crewe finally picked up maximum points in Sky Bet League 1, at the eighth time of asking, coming away from Shrewsbury Town with a 1-0 win.

Manager Steve Davis praised his back line for their display, and his son and skipper Harry was at the heart of that to help the Railwaymen lift themselves off the foot of the table.

Midfielder: Ross Wallace (Sheffield Wednesday)

Wallace was the architect for all three Wednesday goals when the Owls defeated Fulham 3-2 at Hillsborough on Saturday.

@football_league Ross Wallace has to be in it!!!

Set pieces proved key, with Wallace's deliveries finding the heads of Fernando Forestieri, Tom Lees and Michael Turner as Carlos Carvalhal's men recorded just their second win of the Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Midfielder: Emyr Huws (Huddersfield Town)

Huws was in fine form this week with Huddersfield racking up six points from two Sky Bet Championship outings.

After netting in the midweek win at Charlton Athletic, the Welshman added another two to his tally in the 4-1 rout of Bolton Wanderers, and also created a goal for Mustapha Carayol in a dominant Terriers performance.

Midfielder: Josh Windass (Accrington Stanley)

Accrington recorded a 4-2 win against Exeter City on Saturday to climb up to sixth in Sky Bet League 2, and they had Windass to thank for putting them on their way.

The midfielder converted Piero Mingoia's cross to open the scoring, and he doubled his tally just 30 seconds later when pouncing on an error by Grecians goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik.

2 goals 3 points . Happy Saturday everyone 👏🏻👏🏻

Midfielder: Nicky Adams (Northampton Town)

Northampton brought Morecambe's four-game winning run in Sky Bet League 2 to an end, with Adams instrumental in the Cobblers' success.

His cross for Lawson D'Ath's opener set the tone for the afternoon, with the attacking midfielder playing a part in the other three goals in a convincing victory at the Globe Arena.

Midfielder: Jacob Murphy (Coventry City)

Coventry returned to winning ways courtesy of a 1-0 victory at home to Chesterfield, and Murphy impressed for Tony Mowbray's side.

Great from back to front today!🙌🏽 Buzzing @AdamArma9 got back on the score sheet🔥Great home debut by @ryankent_10 also #PUSB@Coventry_City

— Jacob Murphy (@JacobMurphy95) September 19, 2015
The winger was always a threat, and his run and through-ball put Adam Armstrong in for what proved to be the game's decisive goal.

Forward: Jordan Rhodes (Blackburn Rovers)

Rhodes had his shooting boots on when Blackburn picked up their first three-point haul of the campaign.

In the 3-0 win over Charlton, the striker nodded home the opener from close range and then converted a near-post cross to double the advantage, adding to his midweek strike in Rovers' draw at Queens Park Rangers.

Forward: John Akinde (Barnet)

So often the man on the receiving end of Barnet's service, Akinde turned provider this week when the Bees ended a six-game winless streak in Sky Bet League 2 on Saturday against Stevenage.

Firstly, the target man set up Aaron Mclean to level the scores at 2-2, before his low cross was turned into the path of Michael Gash for what proved to be the winner.

Manager: Aitor Karanka (Middlesbrough)

Karanka guided his Middlesbrough side to a fourth straight victory in the Sky Bet Championship, which saw his side climb to second in the division.

Boro's 2-1 win at Nottingham Forest also brought a barren run at the City Ground to an end, with David Nugent and Daniel Ayala's goals giving them their first win there since 1999.
