Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week

28 September 2015

It's that time again! We've taken a look at The Football League's weekend action and rounded up 11 players and a manager who impressed in Matchday 9.

With the help from fans on social media, here's the selection for the latest Team of the Week...

Goalkeeper: Barry Roche (Morecambe)

Morecambe made the trip to Oxford United in Sky Bet League 2 on Saturday, coming away from the Kassam Stadium with a 0-0 draw.

The Shrimps have goalkeeper Roche largely to thank for that point, with the goalkeeper making a number of saves before denying Kemar Roofe from the penalty spot.

Defender: Ben Coker (Southend United)

Coker created one goal and scored another as Southend fought back from a goal down to beat Scunthorpe United 2-1 in Sky Bet League 1.

The left-back teed up Michael Timlin to level the scores, before securing the three points with a low drive in the second half.

Defender: James Husband (Fulham)

Fulham were in fine form on Friday night when they romped to a 4-0 Sky Bet Championship victory over West London rivals QPR.

Less than two minutes were on the clock when Husband's fantastic cross was headed home by Moussa Dembele, and the attacking full-back continued to be a dangerous asset down the left-hand side throughout.

Defender: Farrend Rawson (Rotherham United)

Rotherham United picked up an impressive win at an in-form Birmingham City, securing a 2-0 success at St Andrew's.

Matt Derbyshire and Tony Andreu did the damage in front of goal but, at the other end, their defence was marshalled expertly by Rawson, with the Millers limiting Gary Rowett's men to just a single shot on target.

Midfielder: Harrison Dunk (Cambridge United)

Cambridge may have left it late, but they eventually found a way through to pick up all three points against Stevenage in Sky Bet League 2.

Dunk had impressed in midfield throughout the match, and he then popped up in the 97th minute to head home the winner to secure a 1-0 success at the Abbey Stadium.

Midfielder: Tom Ince (Derby County)

Derby recorded a third straight Sky Bet Championship victory and Ince impressed for Paul Clement's men with a goal and an assist against Milton Keynes Dons.

The tricky midfielder supplied a low ball across for Darren Bent to put the Rams 2-1 up at stadiummk, and he raced clear to put the icing on the cake with the third goal.

Midfielder: Larnell Cole (Shrewsbury Town)

Cole was influential for the Shrews as they picked up their first home victory in Sky Bet League 1 this season, courtesy of a 2-0 success over Blackpool.

The 22-year-old's run and brilliant through-ball gave Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro the opportunity to fire the Shropshire side ahead in the 73rd minute, and the duo combined to the same effect three minutes later to seal the points.

Midfielder: Callum Harriott (Colchester United)

Colchester's hot streak in Sky Bet League 1 continued with Harriott impressing again in the U's 2-1 win at Swindon Town.

Good result yesterday another win and another winning goal roll on Tuesday and let's keep going 🙏🏾⚽️💥…

Harriott played a part in the first goal which was finished off by the equally-impressive George Moncur, and he grabbed the crucial second himself after a neat flick by Marvin Sordell.

Forward: Michael Gash (Barnet)

Barnet defeated Dagenham & Redbridge 3-1 on Saturday, securing a second successive victory in Sky Bet League 2.

The impressive Gash set the Bees on their way in the opening minute, and he grabbed his second of the game after reacting quickest to a loose ball in the penalty area.

Forward: Leon Clarke (Bury)

Clarke's impressive form continued as he hit a brace against former club Coventry City on Saturday  afternoon.

The powerful forward expertly fired into the top corner to give Bury a first-half lead, and he then won, and scored, the penalty which proved to be the match-winner.

Forward: Jack Marriott (Luton Town)

Marriott bagged a brace for Luton as they secured a 2-0 win over AFC Wimbledon at Kenilworth Road.

The Dons had held out for most of the game with 10 men, but Marriott was introduced to the action after an hour, to devastating effect - the striker scored two late goals to give the Hatters maximum points.

What a feeling! Buzzing to get the 3 points and a couple of goals as well 😆🔥⚽️ #LTFC

Manager: Graham Westley (Peterborough United)

After being appointed as Peterborough's boss last week, Westley's first task was to take his new club to Bradford City.

And the new man in charge oversaw a debut victory, with second-half goals from Lee Angol and Chris Forrester handing the Posh a 2-0 win.
