Zakuani In Team Of The Week (23/11/17)

Zakuani In Team Of The Week (23/11/17)

Gillingham are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week's action.

The performance by Gabriel Zakuani in the one nil victory over Walsall at the weekend at the Banks's Stadium 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 Zakuani was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.

'Gillingham were made to work hard for all three points in Saturday`s trip to Walsall, especially after Max Ehmer was dismissed for two bookable offences with 20 minutes left to play. However, the Gills held firm, with Ehmer`s central defensive partner Zakuani making some key blocks, ensuring that Conor Wilkinson`s first-half goal was enough for victory.'

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

Full Team:

Dean Henderson (Shrewsbury Town), Clint Hill (Carlisle United), Ian Evatt (Chesterfield), Gabrial Zakuani (Gillingham), Hakeeb Adelakun (Scunthorpe United), Jorge Grant (Notts County), Bradley Dack (Blackburn Rovers), Albert Adomah (Aston Villa), Eoin Doyle (Oldham Athletic), Craig Mackail-Smith (Wycombe Wanderers), Danny Hylton (Luton Town).

Manager - Nathan Jones (Luton Town).

The EFL have added a substitute bench to acknowledge those who narrowly missed out.

John Ruddy (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Bruno Ecuele Manga (Cardiff City), Marc Roberts (Birmingham City), George Saville (Millwall), Pablo Hernandez (Leeds United), Elliot Lee (Luton Town), Billy Sharp (Sheffield United), Christian Doidge (Forest Green Rovers).
