Danny Drinkwater: Takes his place in Championship PFA Team of the Year

Leicester City and Burnley have been recognised for their stunning seasons with three representatives apiece in the Championship PFA Team of the Year.

Nigel Pearson's Leicester have stormed to promotion and can reach a century of points if they avoid defeat on the final day of the campaign.

Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, defender Wes Morgan and midfielder Danny Drinkwater have all been named in the PFA's side of the season.

Burnley will join Leicester in the Premier League next term and Kieran Trippier, Jason Shackell and Danny Ings all take their place in the team chosen at Sunday night's awards ceremony.

Leeds United's leading scorer Ross McCormack joins Ings in attack, while third-placed Derby County are represented by Craig Bryson and Will Hughes.

Andy Reid of Nottingham Forest takes a spot in midfield, while Ipswich Town's Aaron Cresswell lines up at left-back.

Championship PFA Team of the Year: Schmeichel (Leicester); Trippier (Burnley), Cresswell (Ipswich), Morgan (Leicester), Shackell (Burnley); Drinkwater (Leicester), Reid (Nottingham Forest), Bryson (Derby), Hughes (Derby); Ings (Burnley), McCormack (Leeds).

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.

s for City, can't believe you omitted Sergio. He's both dreamy and lovable rolled into one humble genius. Kolarov, we've all played with a mad cap left back who simply loves two things, shooting and tackling. To leave out Martin Demichellis, shame on you.
