Reading defender Amadou Mbengue has earned his place in the EFL Team of the Week.

The 20-year-old arrived from Metz in the summer and is under contract until next month, with boss Paul Ince already hinting that he would like to extend this.

Having started seven of the last eight matches, Mbengue popped up with a second half header to seal a 1-0 win over in-form Coventry City.

He starts in the Team of the Week alongside Middlesbrough defender Darragh Lenihan and a quartet of Preston stars after their 4-1 win over near-neighbours Blackburn Rovers.

Norwich City, Burnley, Bristol City, Luton Town, West Brom and Sheffield United were also represented.

Speaking to the club after the win, Mbengue was overjoyed with the performance.

"As a team we were really happy to get the win, especially at home, and for me to score my first goal for the club, especially with it being such an important one, is great.

"But I was also really happy to get the clean sheet as well as it is really important as a defender to do your job and keep the goal safe.”
