League One Team of the Week: Stuckmann; McMahon, Hill, Goodison, Ribeiro; Grabban, Foley, Inman, Taylor; Lowe, McGoldrick

Thorsten Stuckmann - Preston North End

German goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann helped to earn Preston a hard fought point in Saturday's 0-0 draw at Portsmouth. Stuckmann pulled off a number of fine saves and he tipped Scott Allan's strike over the bar in the second half to ensure that his side got a point on the road.

Tony McMahon - Sheffield United

Former Middlesbrough full-back Tony McMahon was part of the Sheffield United defence which kept out league leaders Tranmere in Saturday's goalless draw at Bramall Lane. He nearly opened the scoring in the first half but he saw his shot blocked by Owain Fon Williams.

Matthew Hill - Sheffield United

Defender Matthew Hill helped the Blades to a clean sheet in their 0-0 draw against top of the table Tranmere Rovers. Just a point separates the two sides and Danny Wilson's side maintained their unbeaten home record in a bore-draw.

Ian Goodison - Tranmere Rovers

Veteran Tranmere defender Ian Goodison aided his team to a point at Bramall Lane which keeps Rovers at the top of League Two. He was fortunate not to concede a penalty for what looked like a handball just before half time but he held the defence together, helping to prevent the Blades from recording a third straight league win.

Christian Ribeiro - Scunthorpe United

Welsh full-back Christian Ribeiro fired Scunthorpe in front when he fired through the legs of Leyton Orient goalkeeper Ryan Allsopp in Saturday's 3-1 win. It was a vital three points for the Iron who had gone four games without a win prior to this game.

Lewis Grabban - Bournemouth

Lewis Grabban notched his sixth goal in his last six games as he scored the winner in Bournemouth's 1-0 win over Colchester. The result means that Eddie Howe's men extended their unbeaten run to 13 games and they now sit just two points short of the play-offs.

Sam Foley - Yeovil

Midfielder Sam Foley set up a goal and scored a late equaliser as Yeovil came from two goals down to grab a point at struggling Walsall. He played in Reuben Reid to start the comeback before firing in a low drive in the 90th minute to earn a 2-2 draw.

Bradden Inman - Crewe

Crewe midfielder Bradden Inman scored a late winner in the 1-0 victory over Bury as Steve Davis' side recorded their third straight league win. The Australian, currently on loan from Newcastle, stabbed in an 88th minute goal to pile further misery on Kevin Blackwell's Bury who are now five games without a win.

Jon Taylor - Shrewsbury Town

Young winger Jon Taylor fired Shrewsbury into the lead with a fine strike in their 2-1 victory over Carlisle United. The win sees the Shrews climb out of the relegation zone following a winless run of three games.

Ryan Lowe - MK Dons

MK Dons striker Ryan Lowe scored the only goal of the game in their 1-0 win over bottom of the table Hartlepool. It is now his third goal in his third successive League One game, taking his tally to five for the season and ensuring that MK Dons keep hold of their play-off spot.

David McGoldrick - Coventry City

League One's top goalscorer David McGoldrick grabbed a brace for the second successive week as Coventry brushed aside Doncaster Rovers in a 4-1 win at the Keepmoat Stadium. McGoldrick took his goal tally to 15 for the season and he helped to ensure that the Sky Blues' charge up the table continued.
