Top three dominate
The top three sides in the table have dominated the PFA First Division team of the year awards.

Champions Manchester City and second-placed West Brom have each contributed three players to the side.

And Wolves, who are third, have had two players included in the team, which was announced at the PFA awards dinner on Sunday.

Manchester City playmakers Ali Benarbia and Eyal Berkovic and their Maine Road team-mate Shaun Goater have won places in the side.

West Brom players have filled three of the positions in the back five, with Russell Hoult, Darren Moore and Neil Clement being included.

Outstanding young centre-half Jolean Lescott and Republic of Ireland winger Mark Kennedy have been named from Wolves.

The only three players in the side from outside the First Division's top three are Preston's Graham Alexander, Portsmouth's Robert Prosinecki and Dougie Freedman of Crystal Palace.


Nationwide First Division: Russell Hoult (WBA), Graham Alexander (Preston), Darren Moore (WBA), Joleon Lescott (Wolves), Neil Clement (WBA), Eyal Berkovic (Manchester City), Mark Kennedy (Wolves), Ali Benarbia (Manchester City), Robert Prosinecki (Portsmouth), Shaun Goater (Manchester City), Dougie Freedman (Crystal Palace).
