Team of the Week: Matchday 10

A select XI from the latest round of EFL fixtures

1 October 2018

The EFL weekend was packed with more than 100 goals so we've picked an attacking team from your nominations...


Lee Burge (Coventry City)

Having chalked up a century of league appearances for Coventry City earlier in the season Burge is looking forward to adding some clean sheets to his tally to match his performances. There has only been one so far this term, but his displays are contributing to Coventry's points tally after another strong display between the sticks stopped Sunderland leaving the Ricoh Arena with three points on Saturday.


Connor Roberts (Swansea City)
Roberts netted the first senior of the club career on Saturday in Swansea's 3-0 win over Queens Park Rangers, to add to a first international goal scored for Wales at the start of the month. His contribution at the back was equally important and he helped keep a clean sheet that moved Graham Potters' side up to seventh in the Sky Bet Championship.

Jack Hobbs (Bolton Wanderers)
It may only have been his third league start for Bolton since his summer switch from Nottingham Forest, but the Trotters have yet to concede in the league when he has been on the field in the Sky Bet Championship. On Saturday, it was Derby County who were denied as Bolton moved to within one point of the top six.

Matt Clarke (Portsmouth)
Pompey are back on top in Sky Bet League One thanks in no small part to Clarke's contribution. Not content with keeping strikers quiet at one end, he's showing them how to do it at the other. If you've not seen his goal from the weekend yet, you should. A half-cleared corner fell to him and three touches later, including a nutmeg, and it was in the net.

Mickey Demetriou (Newport County)
For a man with an eye for a goal, surprisingly his goal at the weekend was his first of the season, and it came from the spot. It halved the deficit at home to Cambridge and gave the Exiles something to play for in the second period, and they did just that, securing the three points with three second-half goals.


Mateusz Klich (Leeds United)
The born again Klich is loving life under Marcelo Bielsa and Friday night's spectacular strike made it five for the season so far, and his ongoing influential displays will be key to Leeds building on their impressive start to the campaign.

Adam Reach (Sheffield Wednesday)
A dipping volley from distance that found the top corner was a strong reason to justify his inclusion in Matchday 10's Team of the Week, but it's not the first time we've seen a special goal from Reach. His value to Wednesday goes beyond those eye-catching moments and while this goal was only worth one point to the Owls it keeps them in the mix of a very tight division after 10 games.


David McGoldrick (Sheffield United)
A brace against Millwall secured another three points for Sheffield United and took him to four goals in 10 appearances since signing in the summer after five years at Ipswich Town. More importantly, it kept the Blades a point off the top of the table, with McGoldrick looking an astute addition in their bid to improve on last season's 10th place.

Lukas Jutkiewicz (Birmingham City)
Two second-half strikes from Lukas Jutkiewicz capped a fine frontline performance - he was also denied by the woodwork - as Birmingham City came from two down to draw with Ipswich Town - their seventh stalemate in their opening 10 matches.

John Marquis (Doncaster Rovers)
On his 100th league appearance for Rovers, Marquis scored twice, taking his tally in all competitions to 50 for Doncaster and helped them climb up to third in the Sky Bet League One table.

Danny Rose (Mansfield Town)
The former Barnsley trainee scored two and set up the other two as Mansfield Town put four past Northampton Town at the One Call Stadium.


Terry McPhillips (Blackpool)

Twice the Seasiders came from behind to frustrate then Sky Bet League One leaders Peterborough United on Saturday as Blackpool followed up their midweek Carabao Cup success with a point that extended their unbeaten run in the league to eight games. New leaders Portsmouth remain the only team to have been Blackpool in the league since McPhillips took over.
