Crawley Town are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week’s action.

The performance by James Collins in the two nil victory over Crewe Alexandra at the weekend at Gresty Road 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 Collins was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the FL blurb read.

‘Collins moved into double figures in all competitions with his 10th and 11th strikes of the campaign. Crawley had failed to win in their five previous away trips, but a goal in each half from the striker ended that run at Crewe Alexandra.’

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

Full Team:

Jayson Leutwiler (Shrewsbury Town), Dean Lewington (MK Dons), Christian Burgess (Portsmouth), Leon Legge (Cambridge United), Roy Beerens (Reading), Daniel Johnson (Preston North End), Mark Duffy (Sheffield United), David Wheeler (Exeter City), Dwight Gayle (Newcastle United), James Collins (Crawley Town), Tom Nichols (Peterborough United).

Manager – Paul Warne (Rotherham United).
