Demetriou In Team Of The Week (19/2/18)
Southend United are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected following the clash with Portsmouth.
The performance by Jason Demetriou in the three one victory over Portsmouth at the weekend at Roots Hall 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 Demetriou was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.
'Named EFL Star of the Day, the full-back netted twice as Southend racked up a fifth unbeaten game under Chris Powell, brilliantly curling home the opener and poking home late on.'
It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Demetriou for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the points.
Costel Pantilimon (Nottingham Forest), Matt Targett (Fulham), Sean Morrison (Cardiff City), Sonny Bradley (Plymouth Argyle), Tom Anderson (Doncaster Rovers), Jason Demetriou (Southend United), Ben Kennedy (Stevenage), Richie Towell (Rotherham United), Ahmed Kashi (Charlton Athletic), Marc Richards (Swindon Town), Adebayo Akinfenwa (Wycombe Wanderers).
Manager - Joe Dunne (Cambridge United).
