Oldham Athletic are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week’s action.

The performance by Anthony Gerrard in the one nil victory over Walsall at the weekend at Boundary Park was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.

I think we’ll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Gerrard was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the FL blurb read.

‘Gerrard was a rock at the heart of an impressive Oldham defence who kept out promotion-chasing Walsall at Boundary Park. The 1-0 success – which came thanks to a Curtis Main strike – took John Sheridan’s men out of the bottom four and up to 18th in Sky Bet League 1.’

It’s always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Gerrard for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the win.

Full Team:

Joe Anyon (Scunthorpe United), Stephen Warnock (Wigan Athletic), Anthony Gerrard (Oldham Athletic), Maxime Colin (Brentford), Johnny Russell (Derby County), Bobby Reid (Bristol City), Nathan Thomas (Hartlepool United), Kyle Bennett (Portsmouth), Chris Maguire (Oxford United), John Akinde (Barnet), Louis Dodds (Port Vale).

Manager – Neil Warnock (Rotherham United).
