Burnley have three in this week's league team
There are some very familiar names in this week's Football League Championship Team of the Week with three current Burnley players named and three players who have previously worn our claret and blue. Joseph Mills is one of three Clarets in the team
Charlie Austin has been named in the team for what the Football League describe as his two goals in the 5-2 win against Peterborough on Saturday. Alongside him are Chris McCann and Joseph Mills who, according to the league both turned in outstanding performances.
For Mills, it's the second time this season he's made the team having been after our previous win against Bolton on the opening day of the season.
This week, those three line up against three former Clarets, two of whom featured with us in the Premier League and beyond. Chris Eagles, with two assists for Bolton, is one of them with Andre Bikey, who had a superb debut for Middlesbrough, nominated in the back four.
The remaining ex-Claret is Pete Whittingham who scored Cardiff's winner against Leeds from the penalty spot.
The eleven players in the team are from seven clubs with both Hull and Middlesbrough having two players selected.
This week's team is: Jason Steele (Middlesbrough), James Chester (Hull), Abdoulaye Faye (Hull), Andre Bikey (Middlesbrough), Joseph Mills (Burnley), Pete Whittingham (Cardiff), Chris McCann (Burnley), Hayden Mullins (Birmingham), Chris Eagles (Bolton), Charlie Austin (Burnley), Jordan Rhodes (Blackburn).
