Tommy’s my No 1 after Wembley wonder save

THERE is still much work to be done if Chesterfield are to stave off the threat of relegation.

For the Derbyshire outfit to survive, it is essential goalkeeper Tommy Lee keeps hitting top form. He made one critical stop to deny the dangerous Lee Holmes in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final as Chesterfield secured their second piece of silverware under John Sheridan in less than 12 months. Lee, the supporters Player of the Year for the past two seasons, produced a commanding performance at Wembley so he gets the nod in between the sticks.

The right-back position goes to Steve Foster, who starred as Barnsley halted their alarming run of results in the Championship. On the opposite flank, Nathan Smith makes the cut having superbly nullified the threat of Matt Ritchie.

Miguel Llera and Rob Jones are the centre-back pairing after helping Sheffield Wednesday record another shut-out at Leyton Orient.

Jermaine Johnson is the third and final Owls star to be named in the team following a sparkling display which saw the club leapfrog Sheffield United into second position.

Reds ace Matt Done is joined in the four-man midfield by team-mate David Cotterill, who bagged the only goal at Oakwell.

John Oster put a good shift in but could not prevent Doncaster Rovers from losing for he third consecutive match against table-topping Southampton.

Jordan Bowery and Craig Westcarr utilised their pace and power to good affect versus the Robins. An injury to Jack Lester handed Westcarr his chance to impress and he coolly slotted home the second after Mark Randall put him clean through.
