DEFENDERS IN TEAM OF THE WEEK

18 January 2021

Duo recognised for clean sheet in Brewers victory

Mark McGuinness has been named in both the EFL and Sky Bet League One 'Team of the Week' following Saturday's 1-0 win at Burton.

The Arsenal loanee's first goal in senior football secured the three points for Blues, heading in at the back post from Alan Judge's deflected cross.

He's joined in the League One Team of the Week by his centre-back partner at the Pirelli Stadium, Toto Nsiala.

Returning to the starting XI for the first time since November, Toto came up with a number of key blocks and interventions to help Town record a vital clean sheet - most notably denying Charles Vernam with a superb tackle during the first-half.

It is the second appearance in the Team of the Week for Toto in the 2020/21 season, having previously featured following the 2-0 victory over Rochdale at Portman Road in September.
