Clayton Donaldson: Scored a double as Brentford triumphed at Oldham

TEAMtalk picks out the best performers from League One after the latest round of fixtures, with Clayton Donaldson spearheading the attack.

Here's TEAMtalk's latest top XI from England's third tier. We explain our selections and then invite you to pick your team of top men. We're looking for the players who caught your eye with dazzling displays or powerful performances in League One.

You can choose any formation and there's no limit on how many players you can pick from each team - so have a think, then get involved.

League One Top Men (4-3-3): Moore; Logan, Jones, Livesey, Bakayogo; Chambers, Arter, Robinson; Donaldson, Madden, Hawley.

Simon Moore - Brentford

The Bees kept themselves firmly in the race for promotion as they triumphed 2-0 at Oldham and Moore cut a solid figure between the sticks, making a string of fine saves and prompting manager Uwe Rosler to say he did not put a foot wrong for the entire game.

Shaleum Logan - Brentford

Logan was another strong performer as he assisted in keeping things tight at the back for Brentford, helping them to one of the weekend's four clean sheets in the division. Logan also showed his prowess getting forward, linking up well with the Bees' attacking force.

Rob Jones - Doncaster

Captain and joint caretaker manager Jones netted his fifth league goal this season for Rovers as they won 2-1 at Stevenage. The defende's back post header from David Cotterill's corner was a crucial strike as it sealed the superb comeback victory in stoppage time.

Danny Livesey - Carlisle

The Cumbrians eked out a 1-0 home win over Coventry and Livesey helped hold things steady at the back for the crucial clean sheet. The centre-back made a number of important blocks, including a goal-line clearance to deny Coventry's Jordan Clarke.

Zoumana Bakayogo - Tranmere

Left-back Bakayogo has continued to impress for leaders Tranmere this season and he contributed another fine display in the 2-0 success over Crawley, capping his performance with a first-half goal to double Rovers' lead as they retained pole position.

Adam Chambers - Walsall

Chambers was instrumental as Walsall secured a convincing 3-1 win at below-par Preston. The experienced midfielder created chances as the Saddlers took control and was rewarded for his efforts when Paul Downing headed in his cross shortly before half-time for the visitors' second.

Harry Arter - Bournemouth

The Cherries' unbeaten run continued as they drew at home to fellow high-fliers Swindon and Arter's goal opened the scoring at Dean Court as he rifled home from 20 yards in the 26th minute to put the South Coast side on the front foot.

Andy Robinson - Tranmere

Robinson was another important performer in Rovers' win over Crawley, providing a creative outlet on the left of midfield and setting up Bakayogo's strike as he cut a simple pass into the path of the onrushing defender.

Clayton Donaldson - Brentford

Donaldson, the current second top scorer in the league, bagged both of Brentford's goals in their triumph over Oldham. The prolific striker first headed home Harry Forrester's cross in just the fifth minute before adding another eight minutes from time to seal the success.

Paddy Madden - Yeovil

Madden netted a brace as Yeovil put another dent in Sheffield United's promotion hopes with a 2-0 win at Bramall Lane. The striker's double came in the second half as he struck twice in 15 minutes, lashing home a low finish before completing his brace with a tap-in after George Long failed to control Danny Higginbotham's back pass.

Karl Hawley - Scunthorpe

Lowly Scunthorpe claimed a much-needed 2-1 win at Colchester and Hawley grabbed the Iron's second just 25 seconds after the break, coolly slotting home from the edge of the six-yard box after pouncing onto Akpo Sodje's flick-on.
