Team of the Week: Matchday 6

A select XI from the latest round of EFL fixtures

3 September 2018

EFL Matchday 6 was packed with action, we've pulled together 11 players and a manager for the latest Team of the Week:


Daniel Iversen: Oldham Athletic 2-1 Crawley Town

Oldham's on-loan stopper proved his worth in Saturday's win over managerless Crawley Town. With the score at 1-1, Iversen denied Ollie Palmer from the penalty spot, which saw his side go on to claim the three points.


Kyle Naughton: Millwall 1-2 Swansea City

Originally left out of Graham Potter's starting XI, Naughton was thrown in early on after the Swans were reduced to ten men. His stellar defensive work was paired with a vital strike to bring Swansea level at The Den, in a game they went on to win.

Krystian Bielik: Southend United 1-2 Charlton Athletic

Bielik is on loan from Arsenal and is quickly establishing himself in the Charlton side, either in defence or midfield. He starred in their away win over Southend, and netted the winner to boot.

Dan Butler: Port Vale 1-2 Newport County

A constant threat moving forward, and a solid defensive display. Dan Butler provided the complete full-back performance on Saturday and even chipped in with a goal as the Exiles were 2-1 winners at Vale Park.


Ronan Curtis: Portsmouth 3-0 Plymouth Argyle

Signing of the summer? Quite possibly. Ronan Curtis' stellar start to the Sky Bet League One season continued on Saturday as he grabbed his fifth goal in six Pompey appearances in their 3-0 win over Plymouth.

Lee Frecklington: Exeter City 0-3 Lincoln City

The Imps' heartbeat. Lee Frecklington produced another phenomenal display for his home-town Club on Saturday afternoon. The central midfielder was key to a huge team performance, and netted in their 3-0 win away at the Grecians.

Josh Brownhill: Bristol City 4-1 Blacburn Rovers

Bristol City were rampant in the second-half against Blackburn Rovers, but it was Brownhill's early strike that got them going. He, along with Niclas Eliasson, were the thorns in the side of Rovers.

David Templeton: Burton Albion 3-0 AFC Wimbledon

The Scot was the stand-out man for the Brewers on Matchday 6, a goal and an assist was his return for reaping havoc down the left wing at the Pirelli.


Kieffer Moore: Barnsley 2-1 Gillingham

Another week, another goalscoring display from Kieffer Moore. The Tykes' striker netted a double, and claimed Sky Bet League One Goal of the Weekend in Barnsley's victory over Gillingham.

Luke Norris: Cheltenham Town 1-3 Colchester United

Two set-pieces, two goals got Luke Norris. The striker netted a superb free-kick and converted from the penalty spot to help Colchester to a 3-1 win away at Cheltenham.

Dwight Gayle: West Bromwich Albion 2-1 Stoke City

Dwight Gayle continues to show his class at Championship level. The Baggies striker hit two superbly taken goals at home to Stoke City to give Darren Moore's side a 2-1 triumph.


Chris Wilder: Sheffield United 4-1 Aston Villa

A superb team performance from Sheffield United resulted in the Blades dismantling Aston Villa in a 4-1 win. It also meant it was too difficult to choose any players for the EFL Xi. That means their spot in Team of the Week goes to the mastermind behind it all, Chris Wilder.
