Team of the Week: Matchday 44

23 April 2018

Not many more of these to go! Here's the Team of the Week from Matchday 44...

James McKeown: Swindon Town 0-1 Grimsby Town

A clean sheet from the Mariners’ stopper came when they needed it most, making key stops to deny the hosts and edge his side closer to safety.

Tim Ream: Millwall 0-3 Fulham

The hosts did all the early running but Ream’s stunning goal-line clearance kept the scores level at the break, and the Cottagers took full advantage in the second half.

Conor Coady: Bolton Wanderers 0-4 Wolverhampton Wanderers

A clean sheet, an assist, and the final goal of the afternoon as Wolves clinched the Championship crown. The perfect day for captain Coady!

Dan Burn: Fleetwood Town 0-4 Wigan Athletic

Wigan secured promotion back to the Championship with a thumping win; Burn was outstanding at the back, while popping up with a goal at the other end.

Jevani Brown: Cambridge United 4-3 Cheltenham Town

Brown was the star of the show, setting up two of the goals and coolly converting from the penalty spot in this seven-goal thriller.

Josh Onomah: Ipswich Town 0-4 Aston Villa

Villa eased to a 4-0 win at Portman Road with Onomah the architect — the on-loan Tottenham Hotspur midfielder setting up two goals after the break.

Bradley Dack: Blackburn Rovers 3-1 Peterborough United

With Rovers a goal down, the League Two Player of the Season took control, grabbing two goals in a Thursday night win which puts his side on the brink of promotion.

Daniel Powell: Northampton Town 2-0 Plymouth Argyle

Powell created a goal either side of the break, helping the Cobblers shock the play-off chasing Pilgrims and boost their chances of League One survival.

Fernando Forestieri: Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 Reading

Forestieri was at the double, including netting the Championship Goal of the Weekend, in a resounding home win.

Theo Robinson: Southend United 4-0 Milton Keynes Dons

The main man this weekend! Robinson struck three times as Southend eased to victory against the relegation-threatened Dons.

Marc McNulty: Coventry City 3-1 Stevenage

Two goals in the first six minutes from McNulty laid the foundations for Coventry’s Friday night success — the win further cementing their place in the top seven.

John Coleman: Wycombe Wanderers 0-4 Accrington Stanley

The EFL Result of the Day went to Accrington, and John Coleman earns his place in our selection after guiding his side to within a point of the title with this demolition of a side hoping to join them in League One.
