Sports Mole picks out its best XI from gameweek 12 of the Championship, as well as highlighting the biggest numpty and best goal.

Gameweek 12 in the Championship saw 33 goals and three red cards as Burnley went clear at the top of the table on their own.

The Clarets nicked three points from Ipswich at Portman Road as Queens Park Rangers' run of clean sheets came to an end at Millwall, where they were held to a 2-2 draw.

At the bottom, Barnsley climbed up from 24th to 22nd place by overcoming Middlesbrough 3-2 at Oakwell.

Sheffield Wednesday are still without a win after they drew their seventh game of the season at Bolton.

Here, Sports Mole picks out its best XI as well as highlighting the biggest numpty and best goal.

Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester)
In the last round of fixtures Schmeichel was our numpty of the week for his clanger against Doncaster but this time he's our best keeper for a dazzling display between the sticks as Leicester edged out Huddersfield.

Kieran Trippier (Burnley)
The Burnley right-back has been a regular in team of the week and again he makes it for assisting the one and only goal at Portman Road with a lovely cross that Scott Arfield flicked into the far corner.
Richard Wood (Charlton)
Struggling Charlton travelled to Blackburn and the league's most-feared striker in Jordan Rhodes and Wood led the defence to a surprising clean sheet and victory at Ewood Park.
Shane Duffy (Yeovil)
Yeovil have been in dire form since winning on the opening day of the season but should be given credit for keeping out Brighton on Saturday, with Everton loanee Duffy the stand-out player in the Glovers' defence.
Rhoys Wiggins (Charlton)
Another Charlton man in the back four is Wiggins, who was an excellent outlet for the Addicks at Blackburn.

Garath McCleary (Reading)
McCleary scored one goal and assisted the other three as Reading swept aside Doncaster at the Madejski.
Craig Bryson (Derby)
Jamie Ward will grab the headlines for his brace as Derby ended Watford's unbeaten home record, but for us it was Bryson who shone for the visitors by setting up both of Ward's goals.
Rodolph Austin (Leeds)
Austin was a powerhouse in midfield as Leeds blew away Birmingham 4-0 in Sunday's only game. The Jamaican skipper also started and finished off a lovely second goal for Brian McDermott's side.
Albert Adomah (Middlesbrough)
A second-straight week in TOTW for Adomah after his two late goals almost inspired an unlikely Middlesbrough comeback at Barnsley.

Chris O'Grady (Barnsley)
The Tykes won their first game since August and O'Grady's brace proved decisive as Adomah's late double made it a nervy ending for David Flitcroft.
Matt Smith (Leeds)
Smith hasn't had much playing time since joining from Oldham this season but he impressed greatly against Birmingham. The 6'6" striker bagged a brace and won a number of headers at Elland Road.

Numpty of the Week

Alex Baptiste: Bolton defender Baptiste bulleted a header into the corner of the net at the wrong end to gift Wednesday an equaliser at the Reebok.

Goal of the Week

Henri Lansbury (Forest) vs. Bournemouth: The former Arsenal man picked up the ball 25 yards out and curled home a delightful shot into the top corner to give Forest the lead. Unfortunately, they couldn't claim three points as Bournemouth stole a late equaliser. Notable mention to Barnsley's Paddy McCourt, who scored a wonderful solo effort to open the scoring against Middlesbrough.
