Team of the week
Andy Lonergan - Leeds United
Leeds' keeper conceded a whopping seven goals at home to Nottingham Forest in midweek so one could expect the former Preston man to be a little short on confidence. However, the 28-year-old played a key role in Leeds' clean sheet against Millwall at The Den by denying Darius Henderson from the penalty spot after Ross McCormack had opened the scoring.
Joel Lynch - Nottingham Forest
The Forest defender grabbed a last-gasp share of the spoils against Brighton at the City Ground. Sam Vokes headed the Seagulls in front, but the home side were handed the initiative in the second half when Matt Sparrow was sent off. Forest, who had scored seven at Leeds in midweek, were spared defeat when Lynch converted from close range.
Pablo Mills - Crawley Town
The high-flying League Two side made it three wins in a row over the weekend courtesy of a 3-0 success over Rotherham United. Goals from Billy Clarke and a Gary Alexander penalty put the home side in firm control of the game. Mills helped keep a clean sheet at the back and he padded the scoreline with a second-half header.
Reda Johnson - Sheffield Wednesday
The Owls climbed to second in League One on Saturday courtesy of a 1-0 success at Leyton Orient. The defender scored the only goal of the game in the 49th minute after Orient's on-loan Paul Rachubka saved his initial header, but the keeper was powerless to prevent Johnson slotting home the rebound.
Ian Harte - Reading
The Royals full-back netted his second of the season as Reading bounced back from their first defeat in 11 games with a 3-1 victory over Blackpool. It was their sixth consecutive win on home soil and Harte opened the scoring with a close-range finish after Jobi McAnuff's long-range effort struck both posts. He also assisted Reading's third by swinging in the free-kick which Mikele Leigertwood powerfully headed home.
David Cotterill - Barnsley
The former Swansea City man made his mark at Oakwell over the weekend with a fine finish in a crucial 1-0 win over Peterborough. Matt Done's left-wing cross found its way to Cotterill who curled home a delightful shot with the outside of his right boot - his first for the club. The Tykes' win was made even sweeter as the home side played a man light for over an hour due to Nathan Doyle's red card.
Michael Bostwick - Stevenage
The Stevenage midfielder earned his side a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw at Walsall with a sublime finish at the Banks's Stadium. Andy Butler's fine turn and finish put the home side in front, but the visitors levelled matters on the hour mark when Bostwick was given time and space from distance before curling home a delightful long-range strike.
Luke Murphy - Crewe
Crewe are League Two's in-form side after Murphy grabbed the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win at rock-bottom Hereford. Murphy collected a lay-off on the edge of the Bulls' penalty area before skipping past one would-be challenge before squeezing the ball past Hereford keeper David Cornell.
Toumani Diagouraga - Brentford
The winger stepped off the bench to score Brentford's opener in a 2-0 win over Rochdale. Diagouraga was perfectly placed to slot home the rebound after Clayton Donaldson's initial shot struck the post. The victory moved the Bees to within eight points of the play-off spots while Dale find themselves six points adrift of safety.
Billy Sharp - Southampton
The former Doncaster striker may not have set the world alight following his move to St Mary's in January, but the 26-year-old earned his side the three points with a double in a 2-0 success over his former paymasters over the weekend. He headed home his first from Danny Fox's corner before adding a second after capitalising on a mistake from Habib Beye.
Jordan Rhodes - Huddersfield
The Terriers heaped a third defeat in five games on League One leaders Charlton over the weekend following a 1-0 win at the Galpharm Stadium. The striker may only have converted a penalty in the victory, but it was his 35th goal of the campaign - a strike which surpassed a post-war goalscoring record for the West Yorkshire outfit.
