Nico Yennaris named in Football League Team of the Week

16 March 2015

Defender selected while on loan at Wycombe Wanderers

Brentford’s Nico Yennaris, currently on loan at Wycombe Wanderers, has been named in the Football League Team of the Week.

The 21-year-old joined Wycombe on loan late last month and has played four games for the Buckinghamshire side.

He played at right back in Wycombe’s top-of-the-table clash against Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.

He set up the only goal – scored by Sam Wood, one of many former and current Brentford players in the side – as Wycombe won the match to maintain their promotion push from Sky Bet League Two.

The assist and clean sheet was enough to earn Nico a place in the Football League Team of the Week.

The team, published on the Football League website, is drawn from the performances over the previous seven days in all three Sky Bet Football League divisions.

Nico is the tenth Bee to make the selection this season.

Jake Bidwell was picked after setting up two goals as The Bees beat Brighton and Hove Albion 3-2 in September and Jonathan Douglas was named after scoring twice in a week, against Watford and Leeds United, at the start of October.

After The Bees beat Nottingham Forest and Millwall away in the space of three days at the start of November Andre Gray, who scored three goals in the two wins was selected, and Brentford Manager Mark Warburton was named as best boss that week.

Jota has also been named once – after scoring a spectacular goal in Brentford’s win at Cardiff City just before Christmas – while Alex Pritchard has featured twice, after helping The Bees to wins over Norwich City at the end of January and then AFC Bournemouth last month.

Jon Toral was selected after hitting a hat-trick in Brentford’s win over Blackpool last month and David Button was named in last week's team as Brentford beat Huddersfield Town at home and drew with Ipswich Town.

Youngster Alfie Mawson, also on loan at Wycombe, was also named in December after scoring his first professional goal in a win at Hartlepool United.
