Team of the Year
Joe Murphy - Scunthorpe United
The former Republic of Ireland Under 21 international has been a rock all season for Scunthorpe as they aim to bounce straight back into the Championship. It looked as though the shot-stopper was on his way from Glanford Park after s summer of speculation but he is still the best goalkeeper in League One and is looking forward to the play-offs with the Iron.
Neal Eardley - Oldham Athletic
The Wales international has enjoyed another impressive season at full back as Oldham have pushed for the play-offs all season. Eardley has already made over 120 appearances for the Latics and made his debut as a 16-year-old full back in 2005.
Jack Hobbs - Leicester City
The 20-year-old has been such a hit at the Walkers Stadium this season that manager Nigel Pearson is reportedly trying to tie up the on-loan Liverpool star on a permanent basis. Hobbs has played over 40 games for the Foxes and been an integral part of their quest for promotion back to the Championship.
Sean O'Hanlon - MK Dons
This no-nonsense centre-half has been one of the main reasons behind MK Dons' attempt to win consecutive promotions. O'Hanlon was signed by Martin Allen for £175,000 from Swindon back in 2006 and has made over 100 appearances for the Dons. The former England Under 20 international is a real powerhouse and is a centre forward's nightmare.
Dean Lewington - MK Dons
Lewington was named n the League Two divisional side last year and he has achieved the same feat this year after another storming campaign. The 24-year-old is MK Dons' longest-serving player and captain and has made over 250 appearances for the club, becoming a fans' favourite in the process.
Fabian Delph - Leeds United
The 19-year-old starlet has made a huge impact with Leeds this season and broken into the England Under 21 squad after catching Stuart Pearce's eye. Delph has already been crowned the Young Player of the Year in the Football League awards and has reportedly been attracting the attention of both Newcastle and Arsenal.
Matt Oakley - Leicester City
The 31-year-old midfielder has been a rock in Leicester's engine room and helped the Foxes set a new club record unbeaten run this season. Oakley has chipped in with crucial goals and been a pivotal player in Leicester's title charge.
Chris Taylor - Oldham Athletic
Joe Royle will be happy that one of his brightest young talents has signed a new contract until 2012 as Oldham look to recreate the glory days under Royle. Taylor has already reached double figures for the season from a wide role and insists he wants to stay at Boundary Park for the foreseeable future.
George Boyd - Peterborough United
Boyd's career goes from strength to strength after only linking up with Posh from non-league Stevenage in January 2007 for £260,000. He was part of the League Two divisional side last year as Peterborough were promoted and is hoping to complete the same double this year as Posh look for a return to the Championship.
Rickie Lambert - Bristol Rovers
The powerful striker joined Bristol Rovers in 2006 from Rochdale and has bagged over half a century of goals for the Pirates in the three seasons since, including 25 league goals this term. The 27-year-old is the subject of constant speculation but gets on with the job in hand and scores on a regular basis.
Matty Fryatt - Leicester City
It has been a season to remember for Fryatt as his goals have helped fire Leicester to promotion and break records along the way. He became the first Leicester player to score 20 goals before Christmas in 42 years and the first in 83 years to hit hat-tricks in successive matches. His partnership with Steve Howard has proved very problematic for defenders.
