King and Young were included in the prestigious list after being voted for by their Championship colleagues.

King, arguably the Championship signing of the season at £500,000 from Nottingham Forest, has bagged 21 this term and is likely to finish the season as the Championship?s leading marksman.

Stevenage-born Ashley Young, a product of the Vicarage Road Youth Academy, has weighed in with an impressive 13 goals this season ? despite playing the majority of the season on the wing.

Champions Reading have five players in the team whilst Aidy Boothroyd?s side provide the next largest amount of representatives. Runners-up Sheffield United provide one player, along with fifth-placed Leeds but Watford promotion rivals Preston and Palace do not have a single player in the list.

Championship Team of the Year (4-4-2):

Marcus Hahnemann (Reading); Gary Kelly (Leeds), Ibrahima Sonko (Reading), Joleon Lescott (Wolves), Nicky Shorey (Reading); Steve Sidwell (Reading), Ashley Young (Watford), Phil Jagielka (Sheffield United), Jason Koumas (Cardiff); Marlon King (Watford), Kevin Doyle (Reading).
