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 Derrick Williams in the one nil victory over Aston Villa at the weekend at Ewood 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 Williams was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the FL blurb read.

‘Defensively sound, and a constant attacking outlet down the left-hand side, Williams produced a first-class display as Blackburn kept alive their hopes of Sky Bet Championship survival. After helping Rovers to a 1-0 win over Villa on Saturday, the 24-year-old was named the club`s Player of the Season at their end-of-season award ceremony 24 hours later.’

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

Full Team:

Connor Ripley (Oldham Athletic), Derrick Williams (Blackburn Rovers), Aden Flint (Bristol City), David Wheater (Bolton Wanderers), Christian Burgess (Portsmouth), Jake Taylor (Exeter City), Shane Ferguson (Millwall), Craig Gardner (Birmingham City), Curtis Weston (Barnet), Nicky Adams (Carlisle United), Harvey Barnes (MK Dons).

Manager – Nathan Jones (Luton Town).
