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

The performance by Will Atkinson in the three nil victory over Bradford City at the weekend at Roots Hall 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 Atkinson was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the FL blurb read.

‘Atkinson returned to haunt former club Bradford City, scoring twice as Southend inflicted a 3-0 defeat on the high-flying Bantams. The midfielder coolly slotted home to put the Shrimpers on their way, and he doubled his tally in the second half with a well-struck effort.’

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

Full Team:

Jamie Jones (Stevenage), Morgan Fox (Charlton Athletic), Joe Worrall (Nottingham Forest), Scott Wiseman (Scunthorpe United), Tom Ince (Derby County), Chris Clements (Mansfield Town), George Francomb (Wimbledon), Will Atkinson (Southend United), Omar Bogle (Grimsby Town), Dwight Gayle (Newcastle United), Charlie Wyke (Carlisle United).

Manager – Marcus Bignot (Grimsby Town).
