Each week the Official Football League website will bring you the Team of the Week. Produced by the Press Association, the Team's of the Week feature the eleven top performing players from each division from the weekend's matches.

Chris Wood's sparkling form continued for Nigel Pearson's Leicester City as he scored a hat-trick to secure a 4-0 win away against Bristol City and earn himself a place in the npower Championship Team of the Week.

The New Zealand international notched his trio of goals inside the first half and that took his total to six goals in his three appearances for the Foxes.

Alongside Wood up top is Barnsley's Chris Dagnall. The former Scunthorpe United striker scored a three-minute brace - his first goals since the opening day of the season - as the Tykes overcame Leeds United 2-0 at Oakwell.

Another Barnsley player to make the team is midfielder Stephen Dawson. The Irishman pulled the strings form the centre of the park and caused issues for the Leeds backline when attacking.

Partnering Dawson in middle is Brighton and Hove Albion's Andrea Orlandi, who scored the Seagulls' second - the match-winning goal - to help the South Coast side secure a 2-1 win against Derby County.

Selected in the wide positions are Huddersfield Town's Sean Scannell and Nottingham Forest's Henri Lansbury. Scannell caused havoc for the Birmingham City full-backs in their 1-1 draw, whilst Henri Lansbury provided an assist as Forest went on to take all three points with a 2-1 victory over Peterborough United.

The beneficiary of Lansbury's corner was centre-back Greg Halford and he takes his position in the heart of the defence. On the scoresheet in another match, and partnering Halford at the back, is Wolverhampton Wanderers' Roger Johnson. The former Birmingham City man equalised in the 74th minute against Blackburn Rovers to earn new boss Dean Saunders his first points as Wolves manager.

Burnley were one of only five teams to hold out for a clean sheet as they beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at Turf Moor, and full-back Kieran Trippier makes the team for his part in keeping the league's leading marksman Glen Murray quiet throughout the 90 minutes.

Millwall's Liam Trotter takes his place on the opposite flank. The Lions took a point with a 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers and Trotter played a vital part in the goal. The 24-year-old seized the ball and set up Andy Keogh before the striker was brought down, leading to a spot-kick, which was converted.

Completing the team, between the sticks, is Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel. The Danish goalkeeper provided a number of crucial stops to ensure the Foxes registered their fourth clean sheet in five matches.
