Team of the Week: Matchday 39

26 March 2018

Matchday 39 has come to a close and, with that, we've chosen the 11 standout displays from across the EFL. Here’s the Team of the Week…

Ryan Boot: Wycombe Wanderers 0-0 Port Vale

Boot’s heroics ensured that he and his Valiants team-mates left Adams Park with a point, as he foiled Adebayo Akinfenwa, Joe Jacobson and Sido Jombati, to name a few.

Luke Prosser: Stevenage 0-1 Colchester United

A part of the Colchester defence which helped keep out Stevenage, Prosser aided the U’s in securing their first victory in six games.

Cian Bolger: Fleetwood Town 2-0 Northampton Town

The Cod Army registered back-to-back league wins for the first time since December thanks to the triumph over Northampton Town, with Bolger netting the second of John Sheridan’s side’s two goals at Highbury Stadium.

Chey Dunkley: Bury 0-2 Wigan Athletic

Speaking of goalscoring defenders, that takes us to the Latics’ centre back, who, like the previously mentioned Bolger, got on the scoresheet in a 2-0 success.

Stephen McLaughlin: Southend United 2-0 Rotherham United

McLaughlin’s seventh-minute finish set the Shrimpers on their way to maximum points against the Millers, as he placed the ball past Lewis Price with a left-footed strike.

Hiram Boateng: Exeter City 3-1 Swindon Town

The midfield man had a hand in all three of the Grecians’ goals, with him delivering a commanding display in the encounter with Phil Brown’s Swindon Town.

Louis Reed: Chesterfield 3-1 Notts County

Back in the side after a two-game ban, the Sheffield United loanee ran things in the centre of the park, and played a huge role in the Spireites’ vital derby day win over the Magpies. Chesterfield are now within three points of safety.

Dayle Grubb: Forest Green Rovers 2-0 Mansfield Town

Grubb added the finishing touches to a fine performance from the hosts, by capping a mazy run into the box with a smart finish across the goal and into the opposing corner of the net.

Harry Pell: Crawley Town 3-5 Cheltenham Town

Two goals inside the opening twelve minutes from Pell, kicked off a high-scoring affair between the Red Devils and the Robins, as the 26-year-old marked his return from suspension in style.

Marc McNulty: Coventry City 4-0 Grimsby Town

The striker grabbed the headlines in a routine home victory over Grimsby Town, who couldn’t reply to four Sky Blues finishes — three of which were courtesy of McNulty.

Brett Pitman: Portsmouth 3-0 Oxford United

Pompey brought the curtain down on a weekend of League One action by sweeping aside the visitors, with Pitman grabbing two goals, to inflict defeat on Karl Robinson, in his first match in charge of the U's.

Lee Bowyer: Charlton Athletic 2-0 Plymouth Argyle

The Charlton caretaker manager got off to a winning start in the Valley hot-seat. Lewis Page's early wonder-goal was followed by Michael Zyro strike to secure a 2-0 win over the Pilgrims.
