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.

It seems to becoming a regular thing that Town players are in the “ team if the week”. Guess we are doing something right .

Congratulations! Surprised that Edwards hasn't made it into the TOTW yet.

Very well deserved I would say.

Congrats to both

Holy did make a howler, Edward shepherded the ball back but Holy chose to kick it when it was easier to pick up. Cannoned off a player and they should have scored. However, can be easily be forgiven as he plucked several dangerous crosses out of the sky and made 3/4 good saves. Has generally looked reassuring this season.

Wilson didnt put a foot wrong. His distribution was sound and he held the back line together. For me he was MOTM

Well done to all for Saturday, surprising Edwards isn't included. Is it just me or is the totw always quite hul heacy at the moment

Edwards would be in my team of the week every week, goals and works hard for the team defensively, even when things are going bad for him.

Hmmm,seem to remember last season going this well with Holy in goal until Lambo started potching about with the keepers - let’s hope he’s learnt his lesson & leaves things alone this year.

Four Hull players? I can't say their win against Rochdale was that special, was it??
