Team of the Week: Final Weekend

7 May 2018

The final Team of the Week of 2017/18. Eleven players, one manager. Here it is…

Barry Roche: Coventry City 0-0 Morecambe

Roche produced a number of fine saves to deny Coventry, keeping a clean sheet and earning Morecambe the point needed for League Two survival.

Jake Carroll: Cambridge United 5-0 Port Vale

Playing a huge part in the first goal and grabbing an assist for the second, Carroll produced a brilliant all-round display in the final day rout.

David Wheater: Bolton Wanderers 3-2 Nottingham Forest

Solid at the back but useful up top, too! Wheater was thrown up front late on, contributing to the sensational comeback which kept Bolton in the Championship.

Wes Harding: Birmingham City 3-1 Fulham

A fantastic display from the 21-year-old, who set up the opening goal and kept Ryan Sessegnon quiet as the Blues secured Championship survival.

Kyle Knoyle: Swindon Town 3-0 Accrington Stanley

Knoyle was part of a brilliant back four which kept out the League Two champions, while providing a fine assist for Marc Richards’ opener.

John Fleck: Bristol City 2-3 Sheffield United

Fleck demonstrated his skill and vision, notching two assists as Sheffield United rounded off their first season back in the Championship with victory.

Paddy McNair: Sunderland 3-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers

McNair was instrumental in the opening goal and got himself on the scoresheet, putting in an all-action performance against the champions.

Joe Thompson: Rochdale 1-0 Charlton Athletic

Thompson returned to the matchday squad mid-season after beating cancer for a second time, and he rounded off the season with the goal which secured Rochdale’s League One status.

Atdhe Nuhiu: Sheffield Wednesday 5-1 Norwich City

One of three hat-trick heroes in the selection, the in-form front man netting a treble at Hillsborough to see off the Canaries in style.

Tom Eaves: Gillingham 5-2 Plymouth Argyle

Plymouth’s faint hopes of reaching the Play-Offs were put to bed at Priestfield, with Eaves firing home three goals for the Gills.

JJ Hooper: Forest Green Rovers 0-3 Grimsby Town

Grimsby made it four wins from their last five with Hooper scoring all three, including two sublime late goals to complete the hat-trick.

David Artell: Crewe Alexandra 2-1 Cheltenham Town

Artell selected a starting line-up consisting entirely of players who had come through the ranks at the club, and the Academy XI repaid his faith with a win.
