Guthrie In Team Of The Week (10/1/17)

Guthrie In Team Of The Week (10/1/17)

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

The performance by Kurtis Guthrie in the four one victory over Carlisle United at the weekend at the Colchester Community Stadium 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 Guthrie was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.

'A neat turn and finish gave Guthrie the first of his three against Carlisle United, and he doubled his tally with a sweeping finish. The crossbar and a goal-line block denied him his hat-trick, but the ball kindly fell to him deep in stoppage time, and he made no mistake.'

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

Full Team:

Marko Marosi (Doncaster Rovers), Shaun Pearson (Grimbsy Town), Ricardo Santos (Barnet), Kieron Freeman (Sheffield United), Kevin Ellison (Morecambe), Stephen Dawson (Scunthorpe United), Josh Cullen (Bradford City), Ben Whiteman (Mansfield Town), Matty Godden (Stevenage), Kurtis Guthrie (Colchester United), Ellis Harrison (Bristol Rovers).

Manager - Darrell Clarke (Bristol Rovers).
