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 Nile Ranger in the four one victory over Bury at the weekend at Gigg Lane 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 Ranger was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the FL blurb read.

‘Another man to get off the mark this weekend was Ranger, who found the net for the first time in two years as Southend eased past Bury. It took Ranger nine minutes to open his account, and he doubled his tally just past the hour mark in the 4-1 victory.’

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

Full Team:

Luke McCormick (Plymouth Argyle), Conor Townsend (Scunthorpe United), Matthew Bates (Hartlepool United), Nathaniel Knight-Percival (Bradford City), Liam Mandeville (Doncaster Rovers), Johnny Goddard (Swindon Town), John Fleck (Sheffield United), Josh Sheehan (Newport County), Jay Simpson (Leyton Orient), Nile Ranger (Southend United), Kyle Vassell (Blackpool).

Manager – Graham Westley (Newport County).
