EFL Team of the Week: 15-17 Feb

19 February 2019

Stunning saves, midfield masterclasses and fantastic finishes - it was another weekend of standout individual performances across the EFL. Here's our Team of the Week...

Mark Halstead - Morecambe 

The stopper made a series of incredible saves including one from Tom Pope’s penalty as Morecambe picked up a vital win and clean sheet at fellow strugglers Port Vale.

Sam Stubbs - Notts County

With County bottom of Sky Bet League Two and hosting local rivals Mansfield Town, a big performance was needed from the Magpies defence. Alongside Ben Barclay, Stubbs put in a solid display as his side kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 win.

Ben Barclay - Notts County

Another top performer this weekend, the Brighton loanee showed maturity beyond his years to keep the free-scoring Stags at bay. Barclay will surely have a key role to play if his side are to compete their rivival. 

Ben Davies - Preston North End

Davies dealt very well with the threat of Nottingham Forest’s Lewis Grabban as Preston kept a valuable clean sheet at Deepdale to extend their unbeaten run to seven games. 

Emi Buendia - Norwich City

It was yet another good day for Buendia in the Canaries midfield as they returned to the Sky Bet Championship summit. The Argentine’s well-taken goal capped a near-perfect performance which earns him a spot in our XI. 

John-Obi Mikel - Middlesbrough

Mikel has quickly become a fan favourite at Boro, and it’s easy to see why on the latest evidence. The travelling fans sang his name throughout Sunday’s win at Blackburn Rovers, as the midfielder showed his class.

Jake Hesketh - MK Dons

The on-loan Southampton man was in fine form as MK Dons won at Carlisle United in front of over 10,000 fans. Hesketh scored an excellent goal of his own and was involved in another, also hitting the woodwork. 

George Moncur - Luton Town

The man who set the tone for Luton’s record-breaking win at Fleetwood, Moncur scored a stunning free-kick as the Hatters went on to make it 20 EFL games without defeat. 

Teemu Pukki - Norwich City

Fast becoming a Team of the Week regular, the flying Finn scored a brace in Saturday’s 4-0 win at Bolton Wanderers, as the Canaries kept up their title charge in style.

Gary Madine - Sheffield United

With top scorer Billy Sharp on the bench, it was left to Madine to step up to the mark, and he did just that. The striker scored twice as the Blades impressively saw off Reading to move into the automatic promotion places.

Simon Cox - Southend United

The striker’s performance against Portsmouth was a perfect example of leading from the front. With Southend 3-0 down, Cox netted a hat-trick to salvage a point for his side, in what was a fantastic individual display.
