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

The performance by Charlie Mulgrew in the one nil victory over Newcastle United at the weekend at St James’ Park 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 Mulgrew was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the FL blurb read.

‘Mulgrew netted his first Blackburn goal and helped them to a clean sheet, and on what a stage to do it. Newcastle United were on a eight-game winning run, but couldn’t find a way through, and the Scottish international struck in the second half to secure three points for Rovers.’

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

Full Team:

Neil Etheridge (Walsall), Tom Smith (Swindon Town), Charlie Mulgrew (Blackburn Rovers), Ryan Shotton (Birmingham City), Scott Wagstaff (Gillingham), Luke Gambin (Barnet), Ed Upson (MK Dons), Henri Lansbury (Nottingham Forest), Jay O’Shea (Chesterfield), Scott Kasket (Wycombe Wanderers), Charlie Wyke (Carlisle United).

Manager – John McGreal (Colchester United).
