After every weekend of games, TEAMtalk will select our premium XI from England's third tier, explain our selections and then invite you - our loyal army of readers - to pick your team of top men. We're looking for the players who caught your eye with dazzling displays or powerful performances in the second tier over the last weekend.

McGoldrick: Scored a brace for Coventry as they drew at Swindon

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.

TEAMtalk's Top Men (4-4-2): Cousins; Logan, Hector, Eastman, Stewart; Adams, Wallace, Pugh, Montano; McGoldrick, Thomas.

Mark Cousins - Colchester

Colchester kept a clean sheet in their 1-0 victory at home to high-flying Stevenage and Cousins cut a confident figure in goal. His starring moment came midway through the first half when he made a spectacular diving save to keep out a superb shot from Filipe Morais.

Shaleum Logan - Brentford

The defender worked tirelessly as Brentford drew 1-1 at Scunthorpe, holding things firm on the right of defence while also showing his prowess getting forward, and came close to finding the winner for the Bees.

Michael Hector - Shrewsbury

The Shrews enjoyed a 1-0 home win over Walsall, with Hector helping to keep things tight at the back. The stopper was key to the hosts' clean sheet as he contributed some crucial clearances in an impressive display.

Tom Eastman - Colchester

Eastman also played a pivotal role as Colchester inflicted a first defeat of the season on Stevenage. The defender was a solid presence in the U's backline as they kept their second clean sheet of the campaign.

Jordan Stewart - Notts County

The Magpies eased to a 4-0 victory at Carlisle to keep themselves in the promotion places and Stewart helped to keep the home side at bay while also providing the assist for Neal Bishop's goal, firing in a low cross which the midfielder touched in.

Nicky Adams - Crawley

Adams inspired Crawley's 3-2 victory at home to Bury, opening the scoring in the 43rd minute then stopping the visitors' apparent comeback cold when he notched a dramatic last-gasp winner with a cross-come-shot in the third minute of stoppage time.

James Wallace - Tranmere

Rovers slipped two goals behind at home to Yeovil Town in the first half but Wallace sparked their comeback when he pulled one back on the stroke of half-time. That strike put the gloss on an impressive display as the home side fought back for a 3-2 triumph.

Marc Pugh - Bournemouth

The Cherries got back to winning ways following the announcement of manager Eddie Howe's return this week and Pugh was a central figure to their 2-0 home win over Leyton Orient, adding the hosts' second goal.

Cristian Montano - Oldham

Sheffield United were denied a win when Oldham netted a 97th-minute equaliser at Bramall Lane to claim a share of the spoils. Ahead of that last-gasp leveller, Montano had proved a nuisance on the wing throughout the afternoon, keeping Tony McMahon busy.

David McGoldrick - Coventry

McGoldrick, on loan at Coventry from Nottingham Forest, scored two first-half goals as the Sky Blues took the upper hand at Swindon ahead of their comeback after the break. The striker was assisted by John Fleck for both strikes as he directed a free-kick home before scrambling in a deep corner.

Wes Thomas - Portsmouth

Thomas gave Pompey the brightest of starts in just the second minute at home to Crewe Alexandra with a quick opener, then helped the hosts wrap up the 2-0 win early on when he earned the penalty which strike partner Izale McLeod converted.
