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

The performance by Chris Porter in the three two victory over Blackpool at the weekend at the Colchester Community Stadium 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 Porter was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the FL blurb read.

‘Colchester were involved in an entertaining encounter at home to Blackpool, one of the sides who came down with them from Sky Bet League One. The U’s ran out 3-2 winners in Essex, with Porter’s two second-half goals sealing the points.’

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

Full Team:

Mark Howard (Bolton Wanderers), Christopher Schindler (Huddersfield Town), Tom Anderson (Chesterfield), Ryan Shotton (Birmingham City), Josh Morris (Scunthorpe United), James Coppinger (Doncaster Rovers), Josh Scowen (Barnsley), Danny Mayor (Bury), Scott Hogan (Brentford), Chris Porter (Colchester United), Omar Bogle (Grimsby Town).

Manager – Michael Appleton (Oxford United).
