Burton Albion are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week’s action.

The performance by John Brayford in the one nil victory over Nottingham Forest at the weekend at the Pirelli Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.

I think we’ll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Brayford was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the FL blurb read.

‘Brayford was captain for the afternoon as Burton hosted Nottingham Forest in another big match at the bottom of the Sky Bet Championship, and he led by example in the 1-0 victory. On loan from Sheffield United, the defender put his body on the line throughout, making a superb block to deny Matty Cash, and earning special praise from boss Nigel Clough.’

It’s always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Brayford for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the points.

Full Team:

Jamal Blackman (Wycombe Wanderers), Luke Wilkinson (Stevenage), Aden Flint (Bristol City), John Brayford (Burton Albion), Filipe Morais (Bolton Wanderers), Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham), Josh Wright (Gillingham), Kal Naismith (Portsmouth), Medy Elito (Cambridge United), JJ Hooper (Port Vale), Tom Barkhuizen (Preston North End).

Manager – Mike Flynn (Newport County).
