Sports Mole's Championship Team of the Week

Sports Mole selects its second Championship Team of the Week in 2014-15.

Just two of the 24 teams in the Championship have still got 100% records with the second gameweek now done and dusted.

They are Bournemouth and Millwall, who are also both yet to concede a goal ahead of tomorrow night's first midweek matchday.

The Cherries edged out Brentford to hold top spot in the table for the second week running, while the Lions were too good for struggling Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Fulham are one of four sides without a point after two games, the others being Brighton & Hove Albion, Blackpool and Huddersfield Town.

Here, Sports Mole chooses its second Team of the Week, as well as highlighting the weekend's biggest numpty and best goal.

Lee Grant (Derby County)
The Rams are still yet to concede a goal this season and largely had Grant to thank for holding on to that record in a goalless draw with Sheffield Wednesday.

Simon Francis (Bournemouth)
Perhaps the second-best right-back in the league behind Burnley's Kieran Trippier last year, Francis has started strongly again this season and impressed against Brentford.
Mark Beevers (Millwall)
A second week in a row here for Beevers, who once again was a rock at the back for Millwall as they caused an upset by winning across London at Fulham.
Michael Hector (Reading)
Reading maintained their unbeaten start to the season by ousting Ipswich Town 1-0 at the Madejski Stadium. Hector was dominant in the air and on the ground, also clearing one of Ipswich's efforts off the line to preserve three points.
Joe Mattock (Sheffield Wednesday)
Another side yet to see the ball bulge at the back of their net is Wednesday. On Saturday against Derby, Mattock was so close to winning it for the Owls but was denied by one of Grant's key saves.

David Cotterill (Birmingham City)
The Blues finally scored a home league win for the first time in 10 months by defeating Brighton & Hove Albion and it was Cotterill's driving run and cross that Wes Thomas headed home for the winner.
Tom Adeyemi (Cardiff City)
Adeyemi impressed on his home debut for the Welsh side, setting up one of the three goals as they inflicted another defeat on Huddersfield.
Bradley Johnson (Norwich City)
Norwich earned their first league win of the season and Johnson was the key, controlling influence in midfield in the victory over Watford. He scored the first of three goals with a delightful chipped effort from outside the area.
Jordan Cousins (Charlton Athletic)
The Addicks' last-gasp winner against Wigan Athletic was extremely fortunate, but there was nothing lucky about their opener - a rocket of a strike from Cousins.

Rudy Gestede (Blackburn Rovers)
Gestede has picked up where he left off at the end of last season for Rovers. On Saturday he was dominant in the air and scored both goals as nearby Blackpool were put to the sword.
Kenwyne Jones (Cardiff City)
Jones is having fun in the Championship and is now top of the scoring charts with three goals in two games following a brace against Huddersfield.

Numpty of the Week

Joel Ekstrand: Watford were always going to struggle to get anything at Norwich after Ekstrand was sent off for an off-the-ball incident in just the second minute of the game.

Goal of the Week

Bradley Johnson (Norwich) vs. Watford: Johnson finished off a well-worked Norwich move with a precise, delicate finish into the far corner.
