Exeter City are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week’s action.

The performance by Ollie Watkins in the three nil victory over Colchester United at the weekend at St James Park 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 Watkins was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the FL blurb read.

‘It’s not often a forward makes the Team of the Week without finding the net, but Watkins made a telling contribution to Exeter’s 3-0 win over Colchester despite not getting on the scoresheet. The 21-year-old teed up all three goals in the battle between two in-form teams, and the Grecians are now unbeaten in nine after their latest success.’

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

Full Team:

Joe Day (Newport County), Eoghan O’Connell (Walsall), Sonny Bradley (Plymouth Argyle), DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle United), Anthony Knockaert (Brighton), Josh Wright (Gillingham), Jamey Osbourne (Grimsby Town), Conor Grant (Doncaster Rovers), Rob Hall (Oxford United), Chuks Aneke (MK Dons), Ollie Watkins (Exeter City).

Manager – Steve Evans (Mansfield Town).
