Watford keeper Scott Loach and defensive rock Mike Williamson both got the nod for the Championship Team of the Week after a pair of clean sheets in the space of 5 days against Swansea and Blackpool.

A place alongside Cov`s Scott Dann in the Championship’s finest caps a solid month for former Wycombe man Williamson, who has been the catalyst for change in a leaky backline. He even chalked up his first Hornets goal with a lovely little header to break the deadlock in the 2-0 win at Bloomfield Road.

As for Loach, well the rookie keeper has had a splendid few weeks. Not only is he fully deserving of his place between the sticks for this week`s division`s best 11 but he also collected his first England U21 cap under 2 weeks ago?.

?all this from a player who was at Bradford on loan this time last season.

The Championship Team of the Week in full?

Loach [Watford]; Orr [Bristol City]; Dann [Coventry]; Williamson [Watford]; Spurr [Sheff Wed]; Routledge [QPR]; Skuse [Bristol City]; Gomez [Swans]; Surman [Saints]; Sagonowski [Saints]; Counago [Tractor Boys]

Elsewhere in the lower leagues and former Hornet Dominic Blizzard got himself a rather tasty slot in the heart of the Div 1 Team of the Week midfield after an impressive showing (and the opening goal) for Stockport in a 2-1 away day win at Carlisle.
