Spurr In Team Of The Week (14/8/17)

Spurr In Team Of The Week (14/8/17)

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

The performance by Tommy Spurr in the scoreless draw with 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 Spurr was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.

'Preston produced a determined defensive display to keep out Leeds United, holding out for a goalless draw despite finishing the game with 10 men. Spurr was a stand-out player at the back to keep the hosts at bay, giving last season's top scorer Chris Wood little room for manouevre, and helping the Lilywhites to a second straight clean sheet.'

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

Full Team:

Alex Cairns (Fleetwood Town), Tommy Spurr (Preston North End), Jordan Forster (Cheltenham Town), Tim Ream (Fulham), Jake Jervis (Plymouth Argyle), Jorge Grant (Notts County), Andreas Bouchalakis (Nottingham Forest), Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (Cardiff City), Abel Hernandez (Hull City), Jack Marriott (Peterborough United), Kieffer Moore (Rotherham United).

Manager - Mick McCarthy (Ipswich Town).
