Bacuna In Team Of The Week (17/10/17)

Bacuna In Team Of The Week (17/10/17)

Reading are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week's action.

The performance by Leandro Bacuna in the one nil victory over Leeds United at the weekend at Elland Road 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 Bacuna was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.

'The Royals upset the odds to take all three points against Leeds United, thanks to Modou Barrow`s late strike at Elland Road. Dutch full-back Bacuna made a crucial intervention in the minutes preceding his team-mates` strike, superbly denying Jay-Roy Grot with a last-gasp challenge when the goal was at his mercy.'

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

Full Team:

Dan Bentley (Brentford), Leandro Bacuna (Reading), Ben Richards-Everton (Accrington Stanley), Chris Basham (Sheffield United), Matty Taylor (Swindon Town), Diogo Jota (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Luke Berry (Luton Town), Sammy Ameobi (Bolton Wanderers), Oliver Hawkins (Portsmouth), Tom Pope (Port Vale), Padraig Amond (Newport County).

Manager - Steve Cotterill (Birmingham City).
