Bodin In Team Of The Week (12/12/17)
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 three nil victory over Southend United 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 weighed in with a goal and an assist in what proved to be a routine victory against Southend United, who conceded three times without reply. He opened the scoring with a clinical volley from inside the area, prior to teeing up Ellis Harrison for the Pirates` second.'
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.
