Six clubs have representatives in our XI in a 3-4-3 formation. Have a scroll through the line-up, see what you think and let us know in thecomments section at the bottom whether you would have added some different names.

Goalkeeper: Brad Collins (Barnsley): Stood tall and got in the way everything that Rotherham United threw at him in a one-sided Oakwell derby. The main thing is that Barnsley still won, though, thanks in no small part to Collins.

Defence: Lewie Coyle (Hull City): Produced contributions for both goals as City returned to the second tier at the first time of asking with a precious win at Lincoln. At the heartbeat once again for the amber and black. A strong character and leader and he will be back playing Championship football next season.

Top Tiger: Lewie Coyle.

Grant Hall (Middlesbrough): Sporting a bandage to his head after being stretchered off in the previous game at Rotherham, Hall was a dominant figure at the back against Sheffield Wednesday.

Pascal Struijk (Leeds United): His distribution was immaculate and he produced a classy defensive performance against Manchester United. A quiet achiever for Marcelo Bielsa’s side and has a fine future ahead of him.

Midfield: Chiedozie Ogbene (Rotherham United): Posed no end of problems for Barnsley with his pace and directness and forced the hosts into substituting Michael Sollbauer early in the second half. Also had two good chances for the Millers, but failed to stick them away. But it was still an eye-catching outing in his first start for nearly six months.

Kalvin Phillips (Leeds United): A dominant figure in the middle of the park against exalted opponents and showed his international class in an impressive display.

Team of the Week

Ben Osborn (Sheffield United): Here, there and everywhere in the middle ground for the relegated Blades, who provided a chink of light in a wretched run home by virtue of a rare victory.

Yannick Bolaise (Middlesbrough): Produced the main vestiges of quality on show against the Owls and scored a deflected goal. Has certainly enjoyed himself in his last two games for Boro, both against South Yorkshire opposition.

Forwards: Josh Coburn (Middlesbrough): The lanky lad from Richmond, just 18, was afforded a special moment in his career in just his second appearance from the bench for Boro. Three days after making his debut, Coburn, on his home bow, planted home an excellent header for his first professional goal. One to watch.

Josh Magennis (Hull City): Has come to the party during Hull’s outstanding run-in and got another key goal at Lincoln as the Tigers sealed the deal. A big player in every way for Grant McCann’s side. Has scored six goals in his last six games and notched 19 goals this term. Pretty impressive.

David McGoldrick (Sheffield United): Linked up play adeptly and managed to find the net as well, a winning goal against Brighton. One of the few Blades players this season who have performed at anything like their previous levels.

Manager/head coach: Grant McCann (Hull City)
