Team of the Week: March 23

25 March 2019

It's that time again! Check out the EFL Team of the Week for March 23...

Goalkeeper: Craig MacGillivray (Portsmouth)

The Pompey shot-stopper was in fine form as he played an instrumental part in the side’s 2-0 win over Shrewsbury Town.

Defender: Luke O’Neill (Gillingham)

The 27-year-old registered two assists in Gillingham’s 4-2 victory against AFC Wimbledon at Kingsmeadow. A victory that saw them move five points clear of the drop zone.

Defender: Cian Bolger (Lincoln City)

The Imps are now just four wins away from securing promotion to Sky Bet League One, a leading performance from Bolger saw him find the back of the net as well as keeping a clean sheet in Lincoln’s 3-0 win over Crawley Town.

Defender: Curtis Nelson (Oxford United)

A huge 1-0 victory for Oxford United saw them rocket to 13th in the Sky Bet League One table, a solid display from Nelson saw him find the back of the onion bag and keep a clean sheet in the process.

Defender: Jack Stacey (Luton Town)

Wing-back play at its finest at the weekend as run-away league leaders Luton Town hammered Doncaster Rovers by four-goals-to-nil. Stacey grabbed an assist for Kazenga LuaLua’s strike.

Midfielder: David Perkins (Tranmere Rovers)

Got on the scoresheet and registered an assist in a huge 2-0 win for Rovers against fellow Play-Off chasers Colchester United. The win saw them move within five points of the automatic promotion places.

Midfielder: Reece Brown (Forest Green Rovers)

It has been a brilliant season so far for Mark Cooper’s Forest Green Rovers, as they find themselves firmly in the race for promotion in Sky Bet League Two. Brown’s inclusion in the Team of the Week is well deserved after his double in the side’s 2-0 win over Port Vale.

Midfielder: Callum O’Hare (Carlisle United)

The Cumbrians night not have picked up three points on the day, but a sterling performance from O’Hare was the highlight of the day as he assisted both of Carlisle’s goals in a 2-2 draw with Cambridge United.

Forward: Aaron Wilbraham (Rochdale)

The Dale are still managerless since the departure of Keith Hill but that hasn’t hampered their performances in recent weeks, a 3-1 win over Scunthorpe saw Wilbraham bag a brace in a huge win at the Crown Oil Arena.

Forward: Luke Varney (Cheltenham Town)

At the tender age of 36, Luke Varney has been well amongst the goals this season, another two at the weekend against mid-table Northampton side.

Forward: Armand Gnanduillet (Blackpool)

The lively forward was on the scoresheet twice again at the weekend, as Blackpool ran riot against former manager Gary Bowyer and his Bradford City side at the Northern Commercials Stadium.

Manager: Nigel Clough (Burton Albion)

Originally saw his side go 2-0 down at home to a spirited Accrington Stanley side, but it was the Brewers who would claim all three points in a sensational turnaround.
