Team of the Week: April 22-23

24 April 2019

There were countless standout performances across the EFL on Monday, but only 11 players could make it into our Team of the Week!

Jed Steer (Aston Villa)

The Villa shot-stopper produced a fine performance in his side’s 1-0 win over Millwall; Dean Smith’s men have been in sensational form of late, winning their last 10 games on the bounce and securing a Play-Off position in the process.

Anfernee Dijksteel (Charlton Athletic)

A 22-year-old defender, Dijksteel was instrumental in the Addicks’ thumping 4-0 victory over Scunthorpe United on Easter Monday, opening the scoring in that fixture.

Gavin Gunning (Forest Green Rovers)

Gavin Gunning netted his first goal of the season on Monday in Forest Green’s 2-1 win over Cambridge United at the New Lawn, further strengthening their position in the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off places.

Sam Lavelle (Morecambe)

Morecambe fired four past Cheltenham Town in the side’s biggest win of the 2018/19 season so far. A Liam Mandeville corner was expertly headed home at the back post by Lavelle, who scored the third goal of the afternoon.

Gevaro Nepomuceno (Oldham Athletic)

Oldham produced another stunning performance in Monday’s 3-2 win over Mansfield Town at Boundary Park, and Nepomuceno was at the forefront once again, netting a double against the Stags.

Harry Wilson (Derby County)

Cometh the hour, cometh the man, and Harry Wilson was Derby’s main man against Queens Park Rangers. The on-loan Liverpool man scored twice, deep into stoppage time to pull the Rams back into the Play-Off positions in the Championship.

Ethan Hamilton (Rochdale)

Since the arrival of new manager Brian Barry-Murphy at Spotland, Rochdale have all but secured their status in Sky Bet League One for another season. Ethan Hamilton’s 82nd-minute winner against Bristol Rovers was enough for all three points.

Joe Lolley (Nottingham Forest)

A Joe Lolley double sank Play-Off-chasing Middlesbrough at the City Ground. Martin O’Neill’s side have found it difficult in recent weeks, but the Northern Irishman will be hoping to build a strong outfit next season, with Lolley at the heart.

David McGoldrick (Sheffield United)

The pressure was mounting on the Blades ahead of kick-off at Hull, knowing that a win would shift that pressure onto Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United. David McGoldrick’s clinical brace was enough to settle the nerves at the KCOM Stadium.

Chris Porter (Crewe Alexandra)

It has been one of the better seasons in recent years for Crewe Alexandra, who are up to 13th in the league standings and only four points off the final Play-Off spot in Sky Bet League Two. Two goals from striker Chris Porter sent the Railwaymen to a 2-1 win over Swindon Town.

Gavin Whyte (Oxford United)

Being down to 10 men is never easy but when you are 2-1 down at half-time, it is unlikely that you will get anything from the game. Step up, Gavin Whyte; the U’s striker added two goals to his first-half strike to secure all three points in a win against Shrewsbury Town.

Paul Cook (Wigan Athletic)

Latics manager Paul Cook guided his side to Sky Bet Championship safety on Monday with a 2-0 victory over North West rivals Preston North End at the DW Stadium, just days after a fantastic 2-1 victory over Leeds United which came against all odds.
