Neal Maupay takes accolades after weekend's performance

More plaudits for striker after double against Wigan Athletic

17 September 2018

Neal Maupay has been named in the EFL and Teams of the Weekend after his brace against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

The striker returned to the starting XI following his three game suspension and took just 24 minutes to get back on the scoresheet, finishing off a flowing team move from close range. And it was the Sky Bet Championship's top scorer who made the game safe on the hour with his seventh of the season. The victory extended The Bees perfect home start to the season to five games and elevated Dean Smith's side into the Championship's automatic promotion places. 

Having already picked up the Player of the Month for August, Neal's double saw him make this weekend's Sky Bet Championship select XI with a 8.6 rating, the second highest of any second tier player across the weekend.  

As well as the Team of the Weekend, Neal was also included in the EFL's weekly selection from across all three Sky Bet divisions. Appearing alongside Neal is former Brentford youngster Manny Oyeleke, after he netted the Goal of the Weekend in their 2-0 victory over Northampton Town.
