The Professional Football Association has named its Division Two team of the season for 2002-03.
Can Earnshaw hear the Premiership calling?
Champions Wigan dominate with four players, while Cardiff striker Robert Earnshaw deservedly claims his place in the best XI after a prolific season.
JOHN FILAN - Wigan
The Australia international joined the Latics in December 2001 for a fee of
£450,000 and he has been a key figure in Wigan's outstanding season. He has conceded fewer goals than any goalkeeper in the Football League this season.
NICKY EADEN - Wigan
The full-back arrived at the JJB Stadium on loan from Birmingham in September
2002 and made the move permanent the following month. Despite his defensive duties, he is a player who loves to get
forward into attacking positions.
JASON DE VOS - Wigan
The big Canada international has been a rock at the heart of Wigan's back four
this term. A tough competitor who has scored some vital goals this season.
FITZ HALL - Oldham
A bargain £20,000 signing from Chesham in March 2002. The 22-year-old defender
has had a fine season and looks set for a bright future in the game.
MICKEY BELL - Bristol City
Joined the Robins in 1997 from Wycombe and he has been named in the PFA
Division Two team for the last four seasons. An attacking left-back, who has an
impressive goalscoring record.
SCOTT MURRAY - Bristol City
He has been named in the PFA Second Division side for the last three seasons,
and the flying winger has had another exceptional season at Ashton Gate,
reaching the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career.
JIMMY BULLARD - Wigan
He arrived at Wigan from Peterborough in January. A midfield playmaker with a
fine range of passing skills, he has made a big impact in his short time at the
GRAHAM KAVANAGH - Cardiff
Became the Bluebirds' first-ever £1m signing when he joined the club
from Stoke in the summer of 2001. A tough-tackling midfielder with an eye for a
goal, he is celebrating his second nomination in the PFA XI.
MARTIN BULLOCK - Blackpool
The former England Under-21 international signed for Blackpool at the
start of the 2001-02 season and has become a big favourite with the Seasiders'
ROBERT EARNSHAW - Cardiff
The goals have continued to flow this season for the prolific Wales
international, who has already passed the 30-goal mark this term. Just turned
22, he looks to be a striker of real potential and is being monitored by a host of Premiership clubs.
ROB HULSE - Crewe
The 23-year-old joined Crewe as a trainee in 1998 and has gradually worked his
way through the ranks at Gresty Road. A hard-working forward whose goals this
season have helped Crewe challenge for an automatic promotion spot.
