Joe Murphy - Coventry

The Sky Blues claimed their first home win since March with a 1-0 success over Bournemouth, with goalkeeper Murphy recording his second clean sheet in three games. The Irish shot-stopper was an assured presence between the sticks, with his brightest moment coming on the hour-mark when his smart diving save denied Lee Barnard.

Tony McMahon - Sheffield United

The Blades remain unbeaten this season after emerging 1-0 victors at Leyton Orient and stopper McMahon was a star performer for the visitors as he helped hold things steady in defence while also providing creativity down the right flank, pairing up well with Ryan Flynn in the build-up to Nick Blackman's winner.

Ash Taylor - Tranmere

The league leaders have kept an impressive six clean sheets this season, the latest of which came in their 1-0 triumph at Notts County. Taylor contributed a dominant performance to help shut out the hosts as Rovers pulled off another commanding display.

Cliff Byrne - Oldham

Byrne played a key role in Oldham's 3-1 home triumph over Preston North End, proving a solid figure in defence as the Latics built on their midweek clean sheet and claimed a second successive victory.

James Husband - Doncaster

Rovers enjoyed a 1-0 home win over Shrewsbury and Husband, stepping into Dean Saunders' backline in place of the suspended Rob Jones, kept things tight on the left of defence as the 18-year-old helped his side keep their first clean sheet at Oakwell since their opening game on home soil.

Matt Ritchie - Swindon

Swindon kept up their early season success with a 1-0 triumph at Bury and Ritchie produced a lively all-round display, tormenting the hosts' full-backs as the Robins claimed their fourth win in five encounters.

Greg Tansey - Stevenage

Another win also kept Stevenage flying high in the table as they beat Scunthorpe 1-0 at home and it was Tansey that netted the winner in the 75th minute, curling home a wonderful free-kick into the top corner from 25 yards.

Sam Foley - Yeovil

Yeovil ended a run of six straight defeats as they triumphed 3-1 at home to Colchester, with Foley enjoying an effective afternoon as he produced an energetic display in midfield.

Clayton Donaldson - Brentford

Brentford beat Crawley 2-1, with both of their goals coming from Donaldson, who netted either side of the break. The frontman applied the calm finish to Adam Forshaw's pass in the 23 minute before slipping past onrushing goalkeeper Paul Jones to tap into the unguarded net late on.

Paddy Madden - Yeovil

Madden was also on target with a brace to inspire Yeovil's win, opening the scoring in the 20th minute with a tap-in from close range, then adding another 15 minutes later when he pounced on a loose ball and slotted home.

Jose Baxter - Oldham

Baxter was on target with a superb 25-yard free-kick during Oldham's triumph over Preston to get the scoring underway in the 27th minute and lay the groundwork for the success.

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
