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.
