Quite how Watford keeper Mart Poom got named in the Championship Team of the Week, for his performance in the win over Charlton, we are not sure?but he has been.

After all, it was Poom`s opposite number, Addicks keeper Nicky Weaver picked up the man of the match award at Vicarage Road for an acrobatic showing that kept the 1-0 result from being a cricket score.

Even Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd reckoned the former Man City keeper was worthy of some hefty praise insisting “we dominated proceedings and, but for Nicky Weaver, we would have won by two or three.”

But it appears those guys in the know at the Football League went for the experienced legs of Mr Poom despite him not really having a shot to save on Saturday.

Still, praise is praise and if it gives the Estonian stopper some extra confidence then bring it on.

The full Championship Team of the Week for weekend 16-17th August is:

Poom (Watford); McNaughton (Cardiff); Kilgallon (Sheff Utd); Sonko (Reading); Davidson (PNE); Esajas (Sheff Wed); McKenna (PNE); Howard (Barnsley); Trotter (Ipswich); Iwelumo (Wolves); Sharp (Sheff Utd)
