Team of the Week: Matchday 30

5 February 2018

Another entertaining weekend of action has reached its conclusion. As always, we've selected 11 standout performers, and a manager, to make up our Team of the Week.

So without further ado, here it is...

Goalkeeper: Mark Oxley - Peterborough United 0-1 Southend United

Oxley played a vital part in Southend’s success, producing a string of fine saves to preserve a clean sheet and help earn his side maximum points.

Defender: Joel Lynch - Queens Park Rangers 1-0 Barnsley

Up against it with 10 men, QPR defended doggedly to hold on for victory, with Lynch making a crucial late block to deny an equaliser.

Defender: Sonny Bradley - Plymouth Argyle 2-0 Blackburn Rovers

Argyle’s defence stood firm, helping end Rovers’ 18-match unbeaten streak, and Bradley narrowly gets the nod in our selection after teeing up the opener.

Defender: Nathan Smith - Yeovil Town 2-0 Cambridge United

Smith struck his first league goal this term, volleying home the opener, while producing a determined display as the Glovers kept a second straight clean sheet.

Midfielder: Junior Hoilett - Leeds United 1-4 Cardiff City

Hoilett scored one, made another, and had an involvement in the other two goals as he tore Leeds apart at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

Midfielder: Elliott Hewitt - Notts County 4-1 Crewe Alexandra

A bumper Meadow Lane crowd were given plenty to celebrate, with Hewitt’s brace the highlight as the Magpies returned to winning ways.

Midfielder: Jota - Sheffield Wednesday 1-3 Birmingham City

The Spaniard netted two of the Blues’ three goals as they racked up a second straight 3-1 win, climbing to 19th in the Sky Bet Championship.

Midfielder: Tom Huddlestone - Derby County 3-0 Brentford

A midfield masterclass from Huddlestone, who pulled all the strings and registered his first goal for the club, more than 14 years after making his Rams debut.

Midfielder: Sean McConville - Accrington Stanley 3-2 Stevenage

Named EFL Star of the Day, McConville grabbed his second successive home brace, leading a fabulous fightback from two goals down at the Wham Stadium.

Forward: Sammy Ameobi - Bolton Wanderers 1-0 Bristol City

Ameobi was the catalyst for a Bolton victory on Friday night, deservedly grabbing the winner at the Macron with a splendid solo run and strike.

Forward: Ivan Cavaleiro - Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-0 Sheffield United

Cavaleiro stood out for the Championship leaders with an array of tricks and flicks, and his performance was capped off with the third goal of the night.

Manager: Gareth Ainsworth - Wycombe Wanderers 4-3 Carlisle United

Down to 10 men and trailing 3-2, a triple substitution reignited Wycombe, and the team spirit instilled by Ainsworth shone through as the Chairboys claimed an extraordinary triumph.
