Sky Bet EFL: Team of the Week

6 March 2017

A new month is under way in the EFL, and we've pulled together March's first EFL Team of the Week.

After another full schedule across the three divisions, we've selected some stand-out performers to make up our selection, in association with FIFA 17 Ultimate Team.

Goalkeeper: Glenn Morris (Crawley Town) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Morris was the hero as Crawley held Sky Bet League Two leaders Doncaster Rovers to a goalless draw at the weekend.

The 33-year-old produced a superb save to stop a John Marquis penalty, and got back up to keep the rebound out as the Reds earned a point.

Defender: Alan Sheehan (Luton Town) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Luton were emphatic winners at Yeovil Town, and Sheehan was one of a number of Hatters in line for selection this week.

The skipper excelled in roles at left-back and centre-back during the 4-0 rout, and his set-piece expertise caused havoc, with Glen Rea profiting for the third goal.

Defender: Ian Evatt (Chesterfield) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Evatt was a rock at the back as Chesterfield earned a dramatic three points in their bid for Sky Bet League One survival.

The Spireites captain marshalled the backline brilliantly away at Swindon Town, and were rewarded with a dramatic stoppage-time winner against their relegation rivals.

Defender: Will Boyle (Cheltenham Town) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Down to 10 men after just 18 minutes, it looked like being a long afternoon for Cheltenham against Play-Off chasing Mansfield Town.

However, Boyle had other ideas, and the Robins defender starred as the Stags failed to produce a shot on target all game.

Midfielder: Josh Koroma (Leyton Orient) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

The EFL Star of the Day, Koroma couldn't have picked a better time to get off the mark for Leyton Orient, grabbing three goals in the 4-0 win at rock-bottom Newport County.

The winger had already teed up Steven Alzate for the opening goal, before taking centre stage as the O's moved within five points of safety.

Midfielder: Bradley Dack (Gillingham) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

It was one goal and one assist for Dack, and one very important victory for Gillingham as they defeated Bury 2-1 to leapfrog the Shakers in the process.

The midfielder opened the scoring, finishing a counter attack with a low drive from the edge of the box, and assisted the winning goal, scored by Cody McDonald.

Midfielder: Brad Potts (Blackpool) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Blackpool got the better of local rivals Morecambe, with Potts the star of the show in a 3-1 win on the Fylde coast.

The midfielder's fine cross was headed home by Mark Cullen for the opener, and he got himself on the scoresheet with a cool finish after a neat move.

Midfielder: Fernando Forestieri (Sheffield Wednesday) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Sheffield Wednesday were in blistering form as they romped to a 5-1 victory over Norwich City, with several players staking their claim for a Team of the Week spot.

We've opted for Forestieri, though, who set two goals up before adding the gloss with a sumptuous free-kick.

Forward: Lewis Alessandra (Hartlepool United) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Two goals in midweek for Alessandra followed that with another two on Saturday, as Hartlepool United upset the odds against Play-Off chasing Exeter City.

Trailing 1-0 since early on in the first half, the 28-year-old restored parity just after the hour, and added another with a fine individual effort.

Forward: Chris Wood (Leeds United) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Leeds were forced to absorb plenty of pressure in Friday night's trip to Birmingham City, but when they did foray forward, they had a clinical Wood to make it count.

A sublime lobbed finish put the Whites in front at St Andrews and, just moments after being pegged back, he finished from close range to reach the 25-goal landmark for the season.

Forward: Matt Godden (Stevenage) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Another man in lethal form is Godden, who took his season tally to 20 with two goals in a resounding 3-0 win against Notts County.

That brace means it's 12 in 11 now for the striker, and he also set up Jack King for the other goal as Boro moved up to sixth in Sky Bet League Two.

Manager: Gary Brazil (Nottingham Forest)

Nottingham Forest produced a stunning weekend result, storming to a 3-0 win over title-chasing Brighton & Hove Albion.

The game was goalless until Brazil introduced Zach Clough to proceedings. The substitute opened his Forest account moments later, and rounded off the result with a stoppage-time penalty.
