Sky Bet EFL: Team of the Week

20 March 2017

After another weekend of action spread across three days, here's the latest EFL Team of the Week, in association with FIFA 17 Ultimate Team.

Goalkeeper: Ali Al-Habsi (Reading) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Al-Habsi was in fine form for Reading as they started the weekend in style, defeating fellow Play-Off hopefuls Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night.

The Omani stopper made several saves to deny Jordan Rhodes, Callum McManaman and more as the Royals earned an important three points.

Defender: Will De Havilland (Wycombe Wanderers) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Wycombe made it five games unbeaten, with a fine defensive display laying the foundations for a 2-0 win at Hartlepool United.

De Havilland impressed throughout as the Chairboys limited their opponents to just one effort on target, and Wanderers are now just three points outside of the top seven.

Defender: Scott Wharton (Cambridge United) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

After going a goal up after just two minutes, Cambridge were made to work hard for victory against Cheltenham Town.

Wharton was one of the stand-out performers, making a goal-line clearance to deny the Robins an equaliser.

Defender: Matt Tootle (Notts County) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Notts County were reduced to 10 men after just 11 minutes of their home fixture with Barnet, but that didn't matter, with the Magpies running out 1-0 winners.

Tootle ensured the Bees failed to make the most of their numerical advantage, and then smashed home a superb winner to seal the points.

Midfielder: Bright Osayi-Samuel (Blackpool) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Osayi-Samuel was the star of the show as Blackpool defeated a resurgent Newport County and moved within a point of the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off places.

The teenager struck twice for the Seasiders in the 3-1 victory, and won a penalty which was converted by Mark Cullen.

Midfielder: Dave Edwards (Wolverhampton Wanderers) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Edwards took his season tally into double figures after scoring in Wolves' impressive 3-1 win at Fulham.

The visitors soaked up plenty of pressure, but the Welsh international delivered a composed performance in the heart of midfield and was rounded off the result in the 72nd minute.

Midfielder: Lee Tomlin (Bristol City) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Bristol City earned three vital points in their bid for Sky Bet Championship survival with a stunning 4-0 rout of Huddersfield Town.

Tomlin opened the scoring for the Robins and dazzled throughout, earning the Man of the Match award for his performance in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Midfielder: Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (Rochdale) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

Rochdale ended their 10-game winless run with a comfortable 4-1 triumph against Gillingham, and Mendez-Laing was the key to victory.

The winger opened the scoring in the 10th minute, before setting up Ian Henderson and Callum Camps in a sterling display.

Forward: Yeni Ngbakoto (Queens Park Rangers) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

It was a good day at the office for QPR, and a good day for Ngbakoto, who scored one and made two in the 5-1 thrashing of Rotherham United.

The Frenchman scored the third goal in the win, and assisted the fourth and fifth with two excellent deliveries.

Forward: Lasse Vibe (Brentford) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

A thoroughly entertaining affair at the Pirelli Stadium saw Brentford overcome Burton Albion in an eight-goal thriller, and Vibe played his part.

The Danish striker scored two and set two up as the Bees fought back from 3-1 down to win a memorable encounter.

Forward: Charlie Wyke (Bradford City) >> FIFA 17 Ultimate Team™ Database

The EFL Player of the Day honour was awarded to Wyke, after he hit two late goals to seal a comeback victory for Bradford City.

The Bantams looked to be heading for a first home defeat of the season when falling behind to Swindon Town with 15 to play, but the striker had other ideas with two close-range finishes.

Manager: Darren Sarll (Stevenage)

Stevenage's sensational form was temporarily halted by Blackpool in midweek, but Sarll and his promotion-chasing troops bounced back with a 3-0 win against third-placed Portsmouth.

The result saw Matt Godden grab goal number 20 of a prolific season, and the Boro have now won seven from seven at the Lamex Stadium in 2017.
