Championship team of the week dominated by West Brom, Coventry, Middlesbrough, Millwall and Watford - gallery

Here’s a look at the Championship team of the week for April 14-15, including West Brom, Coventry City, Middlesbrough, Millwall, Watford and Sheffield United.

Another weekend of Sky Bet Championship action has come to a close and that means we’re now one step closer to the conclusion of the season. There was quite a split between the top and bottom halves of the table with the fixtures played on April 14 and 15, with the majority of those fighting relegation suffering defeats.

Near the summit, on the other hand, there were some vital victories that boosted play-off hopes for some and hindered them for others. Middlesbrough, who are one of those battling for promotion, kicked things off with a huge 5-1 win on Friday evening, thrashing Norwich City to solidify their place in the top six.

Sheffield United then responded well with three points of their own in the early Saturday kick-off, beating Cardiff City by four goals to one. Blackburn Rovers, the final team in the play-off places, dropped points with a 0-0 draw against Hull City, allowing West Bromwich Albion, Coventry City and Sunderland to edge closer with wins.

From 16th down to 24th, there was just one team victorious as Blackpool put an end to their losing streak to narrowly beat Wigan Athletic by one goal to nil. Reading, meanwhile, battled hard to claim a point off soon-to-be champions Burnley in a 0-0 stalemate. Another result of note was another win for 3rd-placed Luton Town, as they saw off Rotherham United to continue their fine form.

So many players impressed this weekend that it would be difficult to select just 11 to form a team of the week but, rather thankfully, WhoScored’s rating system makes things a lot easier. With that in mind, here are the best-performing stars based on WhoScored ratings. See below.
