Bodin In Team Of The Week (4/4/17)

Bodin In Team Of The Week (4/4/17)

Bristol Rovers are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week's action.

The performance by Billy Bodin in the two nil victory over Shrewsbury Town at the weekend at the Memorial Stadium 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 Bodin was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.

'Bodin struck twice for Bristol Rovers to secure a 2-0 win over Shrewsbury Town, a result which keeps the Pirates` Play-Off hopes alive. The winger opened the scoring from the penalty spot early in the second half after being felled in the box, before doubling his tally late on.'

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

Full Team:

Christian Walton (Southend United), Danny Batth (Wolverhampton Wanderers), John Mousinho (Burton Albion), Raphael Rossi Branco (Swindon Town), Billy Bodin (Bristol Rovers), Harry Pell (Cheltenham Town), Luke Berry (Cambridge United), Chris Eagles (Port Vale), Jonathan Kodjia (Aston Villa), Shola Ameobi (Notts County), John Marquis (Doncaster Rovers).

Manager - John Coleman (Accrington Stanley).
