Sky Bet Football League Team of Midweek

24 February 2016

With midweek action taking place across all three Football League divisions, we've put together a selection of the stand-out stars.

Thanks, as always, to the fans for their assistance on social media. Here is our Team of Midweek...

Goalkeeper: Jamie Stephens (Barnet)

Stephens was in fine form as Barnet defeated Play-Off hopefuls Portsmouth in Sky Bet League 2, keeping Pompey at bay with a string of saves.

John Akinde's penalty won it for the Bees, while the 22-year-old produced the goods at the other end – a fine save from Adam McGurk among the stopper's highlight reel.

Defender: Andrew Robertson (Hull City)

Hull maintained their lead at the top of the Sky Bet Championship, defeating Ipswich Town 1-0 on Tuesday night.

Good 3 points tonight at a tough place, another clean sheet! Onto Friday now #hcafc

As well as helping to shut out the Tractor Boys, Robertson was also the architect behind the winning goal; setting up Mohamed Diame to decide matters at Portman Road.

Defender: Paul Robinson (AFC Wimbledon)

Robinson impressed at both ends of the pitch as Wimbledon defeated Carlisle to make the leap up to fifth in Sky Bet League 2.

The centre-back scored the decisive goal, and contributed to a clean sheet, in a 1-0 win which sent the Dons soaring into the Play-Off positions.

Defender: Ashley Eastham (Rochdale)

Eastham was a rock at the heart of the defence as Rochdale overcame Fleetwood Town 1-0 in Sky Bet League 1.

Despite conceding the majority of possession, Man of the Match Eastham and his defensive colleagues stifled the Cod Army, restricting them to just one shot on target over the 90 minutes.

Defender: Cameron Dummigan (Oldham Athletic)

A first career goal for the on-loan Dummigan set Oldham on their way to another crucial victory in their bid for Sky Bet League 1 survival.

The teenage full-back opened the scoring after just two minutes, as the Latics went on to win 2-1 away at Peterborough United.

Midfielder: John Swift (Brentford)

Swift shone for Brentford as they ended a three-game losing streak with a comfortable win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 20-year-old, on loan from Chelsea, produced an energetic midfield display and helped himself to two goals in the 3-0 win at Griffin Park.

Midfielder: Liam Walsh (Yeovil Town)

Walsh produced a Man of the Match performance when Yeovil earned a fantastic draw with high-flying Plymouth Argyle.

The 18-year-old belied his years with an all-action display in the centre of the park, helping the Glovers to a point which took them out of the Sky Bet League 2 relegation zone.

Midfielder: Rommy Boco (Accrington Stanley)

A brace from Boco earned Accrington another three points to remain on the coat-tails of the sides in the Sky Bet League 2 promotion places.

The Benin international's two goals helped Stanley to a 3-2 win over Notts County, and were his first since returning to the club in January.

Midfielder: Gaston Ramirez (Middlesbrough)

Ramirez was the star of the show for Middlesbrough to see them return to form with a 3-1 win over Cardiff City at the Riverside.

After five winless games, the Uruguayan international inspired Boro, scoring one goal, making another and winning a penalty in the Sky Bet Championship victory.

Forward: Jordan Bowery (Oxford United)

Oxford maintained their automatic promotion charge with an emphatic 4-1 win at Exeter City; Bowery netting twice in the triumph.

Michael Appleton's men have now won four successive Sky Bet League 2 away matches, and the latest success saw them close the gap to second place to just three points.

Forward: Tomer Hemed (Brighton & Hove Albion)

Brighton bounced back from their weekend disappointment in style, crushing Bristol City at Ashton Gate to further underline their promotion credentials.

Hemed was in fine form in the Tuesday night triumph, scoring one and creating two in the comfortable 4-0 victory.

Manager: John Sheridan (Oldham Athletic)

Sheridan has now overseen a five-game undefeated run, with last night's win at Peterborough the second three-point haul in four days for the relegation-threatened Latics.

Goals from Cameron Dummigan and Liam Kelly secured the latest victory, which took Oldham within just two points from Sky Bet League 1 safety.
