Holy and Wilson in Team of the Week
Monday, 19th Oct 2020 10:59
Town pair Tomas Holy and James Wilson have been named in the Sky Bet League One Team of the Week for their performances in Saturday’s 2-0 home victory over Accrington Stanley.
It’s the second time in two weekends that the Blues have had two players in the select XI with League One top scorer Gwion Edwards and Teddy Bishop included following the 4-1 win at Blackpool.
Reflecting on Saturday’s display on Facebook, keeper Holy said: “Excellent performance in the second half secured us another successful weekend and we are staying at the top of the table.
“The first 45 minutes we were a little bit lost against Accrington Stanley, but with time we got into the game and especially in the second half we performed well again.
“Just a little shame that the score end up only with two scored goals, but it seems that this score is meant for us. From six [league] matches it's now the fourth time when it ended like this. But if it persists till the end of the season, I won't blame anyone at all.
“Straight tomorrow we can follow up our last performance against Doncaster Rovers. We are having a really busy schedule right now, pure 'English weeks', but I hope that we will keep performing in the same way.
“The squad is deep enough and strong as well, so I believe that we will manage it. Keep your fingers crossed for us!”
Former Blues loanee Callum Elder, now with Hull City also makes this week’s Team of the Week.

Cycle of Hurt by Steve_M
It's hard not to see a club that has got nearly every big decision wrong and come out on the wrong side of almost every promotion or relegation fight over 19 years as being in anything other than terminal decline. The very obvious exception to that pattern of failure was the appointment of Mick McCarthy and his first few years here.
Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
