Championship GW3 TOTW

TOTW3

Gameweek 3 TOTW

The third gameweek in the Championship is officially over and we were treated to some cracking fixtures.

30 goals were scored this weekend including a five goal thriller, with Swansea and Preston being one of the stand out games.

As always we've had the tough task of narrowing down every individual performance to just the best eleven, and we think we've got the right balance based on Fantasy Hub points scored.

Goalkeeper

Bartosz Bialkowski (6.1m) - 11 Points

The first pick for us in our team of the week is Millwall's summer signing, Bartosz Bialkowski.

Millwall found themselves in trouble this weekend after midfielder Jed Wallace was sent off in the first half, just 6 minutes after Matt Smith had given the Lions a 1-0 lead.

A man down and up against it, the big Polish international showed exactly why he was brought in on loan from Ipswich.

Despite playing the whole second half with 10 men, Bialkowski managed to keep a clean sheet whilst pulling off nine saves in the process.

TOTW1
Bialkowski is the highest scoring goalkeeper of the gameweek.

Defenders

Michael Dawson (6.0m) - 14 Points

Michael Dawson is the first defender to make it into our gameweek three team of the week.

The former England international had a fine game for Nottingham Forest this weekend, as he managed to keep a clean sheet and get himself on the score sheet against a decent Birmingham side.

Andy Yiadom (6.1m) - 13 Points

Andy Yiadom couldn't have asked for a better game this weekend as his Reading side thrashed newly relegated Cardiff City, 3-0.

Playing his part defensively by helping to keep a clean sheet, the Ghanaian also put in a great shift going forward by chipping in with two assists.

Jack Robinson (6.3m) - 7 Points

There were many players we could have gone for, for our third spot as many defenders picked up 7 points this weekend.

We decided to go for Jack Robinson who like his team-mate Michael Dawson also had a good game at the back, keeping a clean sheet against Birmingham this weekend.

The full back completed 4 tackles whilst also ending the game with a 82% pass success rate, in what was a solid individual performance.

TOTW2
34 points were picked up between the back three in our team of the week.

Midfielders

Conor Gallagher (5.8m) - 11 Points

First up for the midfielders is none other than Charlton's Conor Gallagher.

The Chelsea loanee was one of the standout performers this weekend, scoring the goal which levelled the game for Charlton at 1-1.

Gallagher was also credited with the assist for The Addicks' second equaliser as he was brought down in the box which resulted in Lyle Taylor tucking away a 89th minute penalty.

Joe Lolley (7.9m) - 11 Points

The third Nottingham Forest player to make it into our team of the week is Joe Lolley.

Forest's star player was arguably the most influential player on the pitch against Birmingham, with the midfielder getting on the scoresheet before turning provider for Lewis Grabban's 22nd minute goal.

John Swift (6.6m) - 11 Points

Likewise with Lolley, John Swift was also a real standout player this weekend.

Assisting George Puscas' second goal of the game before putting the final nail in the Cardiff coffin, with his goal in the 83rd minute.

Grady Diangana (6.6m) - 13 Points

Look up 'instant impact' in the dictionary and sure enough you'll find Grady Diangana's name.

The West Ham loanee was substituted on for his debut in the 46th minute as West Brom trailed to Championship newcomers, Luton by 1-0.

Within the first five minutes of being on the pitch, the England U20 midfielder had already bagged himself a brace with goals in the 48th and 51st minute.

Which completely turned the game on it's head and was enough to give The Baggies all three points.

TOTW 3
The four top scoring midfielders managed to pick up a combined 46 points this gameweek.

Forwards

Borja Baston (7.2m) - 15 Points

The highest scoring Championship player of the gameweek, Borja Baston has certainly found his form so far this season.

Scoring Swansea's first equaliser at the end of the first half before netting the match winner in the 69th minute, taking the Spaniard's tally up to three for the season.

George Puscas (6.8m) - 12 Points

The third Reading player to make it into our team of the week comes as no shock.

George Puscas had an exceptional game against Cardiff, with the former Inter Milan forward netting a brace on his home debut.

Patrick Bamford (7.8m) - 12 Points

The final player to make it into our third Championship team of the week is Leeds' frontman Patrick Bamford.

The former England U20 international has made a great start to the new campaign and things got even better this weekend.

Bamford won the game for Leeds by bagging a brace against the 10 men of Wigan, scoring in the 34th and 65th minute.

TOTW 4
A total of 130 points were scored from our Team Of The Week this gameweek.
