Middlesbrough defender Rhys Williams has been selected in the nPower Championship Team of the Week for October 22/23.

The 23-year old Australian international netted the opener as Boro got back to winning ways with a 2-0 home result over Derby County on Saturday and his performance was enough to be included in the best eleven players in England's second tier for the week.

Williams, who has started 12 of Middlesbrough's 13 league games so far this term, was joined by the likes of Birmingham City's Liam Ridgewell, Reading's Mikele Leigertwood and Portsmouth's Luke Varney in the selection.
