Christopher Schindler has been named in this week's EFL Team of the Week by the Football League.

Chris Lowe, Aaron Mooy and most recently Danny Ward have all been named in previous teams of the week and Town's record signing is the latest to be rewarded for his efforts.

The German centre-half oversaw his side's clean sheet against Yorkshire rivals Leeds United and marshaled the backline superbly alongside Mark Hudson.

Schindler is one of just four Championship players in this week's lineup, with Brentford's Scott Hogan, Barnsley's Josh Scowen and Ryan Shotton from Birmingham City all also getting the nod.
