Teemu Pukki leads the line in the Championship Team of the Week for Round Nine after his two-goal haul for Norwich versus Bristol City.

The Canaries extended their unbeaten run to five games with the 3-1 away win, with Pukki scoring twice within the first 15 minutes to earn a 8.5 FC Rating.

Reading suffered their first loss of the new campaign away at Coventry, but Lucas Joao (8.0) still impressed as he contributed to two of their consolation goals with one scored himself as well as an assist.

Josh Koroma (8.0) of Huddersfield makes up the front three after his goal in the impressive 3-0 away win at Millwall.

Koroma's Huddersfield team-mate Juninho Bacuna (7.8) was excellent in that game, too, recording assists for two out of the three goals.

The overall best performer of the weekend was Graham Shinnie (8.9), who ran the show for Derby away at Bournemouth in the 1-1 draw between the sides on Saturday.

As well as scoring Derby's only goal, he won 13/18 duels, 8/9 tackles, and made eight ball recoveries.

Joe Ralls (7.9) makes up the midfield after scoring two for Cardiff.

Another big away win came from Brentford as they defeated Luton 3-0, with Rico Henry (7.8) getting on the scoresheet from left-back.

In the middle of the defence, we have Mads Juel Andersen (8.0) and Benjamin Cabango (8.1), who both secured clean sheets for Barnsley and Swansea respectively.

Right-back Todd Kane (7.7) scored as QPR eventually defeated Cardiff.

Ben Hamer (8.1) made four saves and a huge 15 ball recoveries in Huddersfield's win at Millwall to earn his place in goal in the Team of the Week.
