Sky Bet Football League Team of Midweek

9 March 2016

With a number of games having taken place on Tuesday night, we've put together a list of the stand-out performers to make up our Team of Midweek.

Taking supporters' social media suggestions into account, here's our best XI and a manager...

Goalkeeper: Marco Silvestri (Leeds United) 

Silvestri was in fine form to prevent Cardiff City from climbing into the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off positions, and helping earn Leeds all three points.

The Italian recorded a clean sheet, making brilliant saves to deny both Peter Whittingham and Tom Lawrence as United won 2-0.

Defender: Clint Hill (Queens Park Rangers)

The experienced centre-half put in an excellent performance to help QPR keep their second successive clean sheet at Loftus Road.

Tjaronn Chery got the first of the game with one of Hill's defensive colleagues, Gabriele Angella, wrapping up all three points late on. 

Defender: Matt Doherty (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

After a solid performance, left-back Doherty scored an injury-time winner to secure all three points against Bristol City in a 2-1 victory at Molineux. 

It was the club's second consecutive home win which puts them 12th in the league table.

Defender: Matt Mills (Nottingham Forest)

Dougie Freedman's side kept their first clean sheet in five games with Mills an integral part of a solid back four that helped overcome Preston North End 1-0.

Nelson Oliveira, on loan from Benfica, netted the winning goal late in the first half at the City Ground.

Defender: Reece Burke (Bradford City)

The on-loan West Ham defender scored the Bantams' second goal at Valley Parade where Phil Parkinson's men defeated Sky Bet League 1 leaders Burton Albion.

Kyel Reid netted the opener, prior to the 19-year-old adding the second to keep Bradford's promotion hopes alive.

Midfielder: Lee Frecklington (Rotherham United)

Frecklington struck with just two minutes left to play to help record Rotherham's third successive win.

The match looked set to finish all square but the former Peterborough United man struck late on to deny Middlesbrough the chance to reduce the gap at the top. Rotherham's efforts saw them rewarded with The Football League's Result of the Night.

Midfielder: Michael Doyle (Portsmouth)

Pompey dominated first-half proceedings in a crucial clash at the top end of Sky Bet League 2 against Accrington Stanley. 

Michael Doyle scored a spectacular 30-yard volley to put the visitors 3-0 up, with Kyle Bennett grabbing the opener before Matt Pearson scored an unfortunate own goal. 

Midfielder: Ollie Clarke (Bristol Rovers)

Clarke struck Rovers' second goal in an important 3-1 win over fellow Play-Off hopefuls AFC Wimbledon.

It was Darrell Clarke's side's third successive win and it was them go fifth in the Sky Bet League 2 table.

Midfielder: Mark Randall (Barnet)

Barnet clinched their third away win of the season with Randall on target in a fantastic Bees display.

Andy Yiadom scored his second goal in three games to grab the opener, with Randall doubling the advantage just before half-time. 

Forward: Sam Vokes (Burnley)

Burnley extended their lead at the Sky Bet Championship summit by beating Fulham 3-2, largely thanks to a double from Vokes.

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers hitman opened the scoring on nine minutes before converting a penalty early in the second half to help clinch all three points.

Forward: Jamie Paterson (Huddersfield Town)

Huddersfield clinched their first win in four to end Reading's five-match unbeaten run.

Nahki Wells was on target early in the second half, but Paterson makes our best XI having doubled the advantage 10 minutes later when he converted Sean Scannell's low ball. It was his fourth goal in four games against Reading this term.

Manager: Neil Warnock (Rotherham United)

The Rotherham United boss inspired his team to a third successive Sky Bet Championship win, this time over promotion-chasing Middlesbrough.

Lee Frecklington scored the decisive goal just two minutes from time as the Millers kept their second clean sheet in the space of four days.
