Chris Burke's brace of goals against Nottingham Forest has earned the player a place in the Football League Team of the Week.

Burke's two strikes saw Blues deservedly beat Forest 2-1 at St. Andrew's on Saturday.

The winger's first effort was a superb left-footed finish just before half-time and his second came when he turned home Nathan Redmond's cross ten minutes before the end of the game.

The full Team of the Week is: David Stockdale (Hull), Bradley Orr (Blackburn), Richard Keogh (Derby), Tommy Smith (Ipswich), Andrew Taylor (Cardiff), Chris Burke (Blues), Craig Bryson (Derby), Almen Abdi (Watford), Tommy Rowe (Peterborough), Jordan Rhodes (Blackburn), Glenn Murray (Crystal Palace). 

Each week the Official Football League website will bring you the Team of the Week. Produced by the Press Association, the Team's of the Week feature the eleven top performing players from each division from the weekend's matches.
