Sports Mole's Championship Team of the Week

Sports Mole picks out its favourite XI from Tuesday night's Championship matches.

All 24 Championship teams have now played twice since the weekend after last night's full schedule, which gave us 35 goals and one red card.

Burnley moved to within three points of league leaders Leicester City by seeing off Doncaster Rovers as the Foxes were held at home by Yeovil Town.

Queens Park Rangers moved up to third in the table by ending Wigan's eight-game unbeaten run, while at the bottom Millwall have plummeted to the foot of the table after they lost to Birmingham City and Barnsley and Yeovil Town picked up points.

Here, Sports Mole selects its best XI, highlights the biggest numpty and chooses its favourite goal from last night's games

Robert Green (Queens Park Rangers)
QPR became the first team to stop Wigan scoring for over a month and Green was the main reason, making a brilliant one-handed save in the final moments to keep the Latics out.

Simon Francis (Bournemouth)
Francis has been one of Bournemouth's best players of late and last night set up three of the Cherries' four goals as they annihilated troubled Leeds United.
Christophe Berra (Ipswich Town)
Scottish defender Berra has been perhaps the best free signing of this season, becoming an ever-present in Ipswich's backline. Last night against Derby County he made a vital late block at one end before going up the other and scoring the winning goal in stoppage time.
David Wheater (Bolton Wanderers)
As well as netting the winner against Blackpool, Wheater also helped restrict the Seasiders to just one shot on target at the Reebok.
Ben Mee (Burnley)
Mee was here on Saturday and again gets the left-back spot for a solid performance for on-fire Burnley.

Junior Stanislas (Burnley)
Stanislas got a rare start for the Clarets as Sean Dyche rested Michael Kightly. The former West Ham man took his chance with an attacking display and opened the scoring for the high-flyers.
Jordan Cousins (Charlton Athletic)
Even though Nottingham Forest are going through a torrid time, Charlton were still expected to lose at the City Ground but they got their second win in three games thanks to Cousins's late winner.
Jonathan Williams (Ipswich)
Crystal Palace loanee Williams has been a star for Ipswich since moving to Suffolk and yesterday scored a 30-yard screamer to level the scores against Derby.
Albert Adomah (Middlesbrough)
Probably Middlesbrough's best player this season, Adomah scored a double for Boro as they got a point at Huddersfield Town. His second was a great goal as he collected possession before driving at the Terriers' defence and firing a shot high into the net.

Chris O'Grady (Barnsley)
Barnsley picked up three massive points in their fight against relegation by comprehensively beating playoff hopefuls Reading on the road. O'Grady was a nuisance all game and was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet.
Yann Kermorgant (Bournemouth)
The Frenchman netted two of Bournemouth's four goals last night on his return to the starting lineup at home. Cherries fans must be impressed with the former Charlton man as he has scored a hat-trick and a brace in his last two starts at Dean Court.

Numpty of the Week

Oscar Gobern: The Huddersfield midfielder gifted Adomah his first with a careless backpass towards his own goal that was easy to intercept.

Goal of the Week

Jonathan Williams (Ipswich) vs. Derby: Williams's drive was an unstoppable shot that flew into the corner. Check it out from 55 seconds in the video below.
