David McGoldrick: Scored a double as Coventry saw off Crawley

Two Crewe stars and two Brentford stars are among the players picked in TEAMtalk's League One Team of the Week.

George Long - Sheffield United

Teenager Long continued to impress between the sticks for the Blades as he helped them to a clean sheet in their goalless draw at Swindon - his fifth in eight games since coming into the club's first-team. The 19-year-old pulled off a host of saves to deny the Robins as United nicked a crucial point.

Danny Holmes - Tranmere

Rovers kept themselves in pole position at the top of League One with a 2-0 win at Hartlepool and Holmes produced a solid display at the back to help his side keep out the hosts for their eighth clean-sheet of the campaign.

Niall Canavan - Scunthorpe

The Iron claimed a decisive 4-1 victory at Walsall despite being reduced to 10 men and Canavan was instrumental to the much-needed win, which lifted his side closer to escaping the drop zone. The defender scored either side of the break as well as holding things steady at the back for the visitors.

Harry Davis - Crewe

A quality all-round performance from Crewe resulted in a 2-0 triumph at Doncaster and Harry Davis contributed a solid display at centre-half to help keep a clean sheet and subdue the threat of Rovers frontmen Billy Paynter and Iain Hume.

Jake Bidwell - Brentford

Bidwell helped the Bees keep out the home side as they won 1-0 at Portsmouth to go unbeaten in three games, while the defender also won the free-kick which set up Clayton Donaldson's winner early on.

Dean Bowditch - MK Dons

MK Dons claimed their second successive win with a 1-0 home success against Leyton Orient to stay within touching distance of the promotion play-off places. Bowditch was impressive in midfield and set up Ryan Lowe's winner just before half-time as his low cross allowed the striker to tap home.

Harry Arter - Bournemouth

The Cherries continued their resurgence under Eddie Howe as they beat Shrewsbury 2-1 and Arter was an influential figure. The youngster produced a diligent display, pulling the strings in midfield while also looking a threat in front of goal as he put himself all over the pitch.

Alan Judge - Notts County

The Magpies remain in the play-off spots after beating Colchester 2-0 on the road, with Judge scoring their second of the night on the stroke of half-time. The winger had earlier set up Neal Bishop's opener when he provided the 17th-minute free-kick which allowed his team-mate to volley home.

David McGoldrick - Coventry

McGoldrick is the second highest scorer in the league so far behind Tranmere's Jake Cassidy after bagging a brace for the Sky Blues in their 3-1 win over Crawley to take his haul to nine. The striker steered home a deflected cross from fellow goalscorer John Fleck shortly before half-time before curling home a superb 20-yard finish to seal the win after the break.

Clayton Donaldson - Brentford

Donaldson scored the only goal of the game as Brentford triumphed at Portsmouth, with his breakthrough coming in just the ninth minute. The striker did well to flick home an Adam Forshaw free-kick with a glanced back header.

Lauri Dalla Valle - Crewe

The young striker made an instant impact on his Crewe debut after joining on loan from Fulham just the day before. The 21-year-old only needed five minutes to make his mark, picking up a defence-splitting pass from Chuks Aneke to blast in an early opener.
