The PFA have announced their respective teams of the year for the Championship, League One and League Two, with Brighton, Sheffield United and Plymouth well represented throughout the divisions.
Championship leaders Brighton have four players in the team voted for by their fellow professionals, with second-placed Newcastle United close behind with three players represented, though Matt Ritchie surprisingly misses out.
League One champions Sheffield United are represented by five players, while second-placed Plymouth lead the League Two numbers with three players.
The PFA announced this year's nominees ahead of the 2017 PFA Awards, with the event to be held at the Grosvenor House, London on April 23.
