Who joins Saville and Murray in the Championship team of the week?

Reading Madejski 3

Charlton, Norwich City, Blackpool, Bournemouth, Reading, Middlesbrough, Wolves, Blackburn and Nottingham Forest stars all feature.

The Championship is now in full swing with early contenders emerging at the top of the table, while several sides struggle in the bottom half.

Nottingham Forest remain undefeated after their derby game against Derby, while Leeds United are still searching for some form down at the other end of the league table.

Here’s our Championship team of the week ahead of the mid-week games.

GK – Stephen Henderson (Charlton Athletic)

Henderson was superb in the game against Watford and made key saves at key times throughout the match.

RB – Tony McMahon (Blackpool)

Played well during the game against Wolves, which helped his team secure a point and start moving in the right direction.

CB – Michael Turner (Norwich City)

An extremely gutsy display accompanied by a goal, after a poor start to the match against Cardiff City.

CB – Steve Cook (AFC Bournemouth)

Bournemouth played out a 1-1 draw against Championship new boys Rotherham United and Cook had a settled game in the middle of his side’s defence.

LB – Jordan Obita (Reading)

Obita controlled his side of the pitch in the game against Fulham and was rarely troubled, which allowed him to get forward frequently.

RM – Wes Hoolahan (Norwich City)

We had to find a position for him somewhere. Grabbed his team’s attack by the scruff of the neck and pulled the strings as Norwich built pressure.

CM – Grant Leadbitter (Middlesbrough)

Played well in the middle of the team against Huddersfield. He got stuck in and was key in a 2-1 win with a fantastic goal.

CM – George Saville (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

Wolves fans will be delighted with Saville’s start to life at the club. He was difficult for Blackpool to get the better of throughout.

LM – Ben Marshall (Blackburn Rovers)

Marshall found the back of the net twice with a key brace, which helped his employers see off Wigan.

ST – Glenn Murray (Reading)

Murray bagged a brace in the win against Fulham and was as unplayable as he’s been so far in his career.

ST – Britt Assombalonga (Nottingham Forest)

Continues to get more and more popular with Forest fans after his move from Peterborough. A goal in a high intensity derby is always valuable.
