Here is our Star Team of the Week after a day in which draws were a running theme...

(4-3-3)

GOALKEEPER

Keiren Westwood (Sheffield Wednesday): That howler against Watford last Saturday can be forgotten about now as the Owls keeper did, against Norwich, what he has been doing for almost all of the season to date - pulling off superb saves and keeping Sheffield Wednesday in games. Another stunning display to earn a point for Stuart Gray’s side including a phenomenal one-handed stop to keep out Cameron’s Jerome header in the second half

DEFENCE

Paddy McCarthy (Sheffield United): The centre-half, on loan from Crystal Palace, gets better and better with every game. Did not have much to do as Sheffield United dominated for long periods but, when he was called into action, he dealt comfortably with everyone that came his way.

Craig Morgan (Rotherham United): Hardly put a foot wrong in central defence against Brighton and found time to almost score with a well-struck 20-yarder. Consistently good all season.

Andy Butler (Doncaster Rovers): Making his debut for Rovers after a loan move from Sheffield United, where he was frozen out, Butler brought strenghth and experience to his home town club’s defence and helped them to a hard-earned clean sheet against MK Dons.

Tom Lees (Sheffield Wednesday): The former Leeds player starred as Owls recorded their ninth clean sheet of the campaign, making several important interceptions, tackles and headers. Along with Westwood, he has been Wednesday’s top performer this season.

MIDFIELD

James Wallace (Sheffield United): A real physical presence in midfield on his return from injury and produced some eye-catching passes too. Showed good experience, despite his tender years, when he deliberately collected a booking rather than let Crewe lauch a counter-attack during the closing stages.

Sam Clucas (Chesterfield): Spireites’ most dangerous player. Saw two shots well saved, two headers fly within an inch and his energy and link up play was as good as anyone on the park.

Conor Hourihane (Barnsley): Produced another all-action midfield performance and registered his eight goal of the season against the high-flying Robins.

FORWARDS

Jamie Murphy (Sheffield United): Full of invention, energy and provided the assist for Sheffield United’s winning goal. Murphy made a slow start to the new campaign but is now showing the type of form which made him such a key player for Nigel Clough last season.

Alex Revell (Rotherham United): Three in three games for the big fella who deserves the success coming his way. Worth his worth place for his workrate, team ethic and aerial prowess, never mind the goals.

Sam Winnall (Barnsley): As well as scoring a well-deserved fourth goal of the season against table-topping Bristol City, Winnall proved a real threat throughout.
