Midfield

LeadbitterThe first midfielder in our side is Middlesbrough captain and talisman Grant Leadbitter. Ten goals and three assists from the box-t0-box player has provided some huge goals for Boro this season as they chase promotion to the Premier League. Alongside his goals, Leadbitter’s work rate and determination is a driving force for his side.

Next up in the midfield is Blackburn midfielder Tom Cairney. The Scot at a young age has taken a lot of responsibility in the Rovers side and stepped up to the mark in what has been a good year at Ewood Park by recent standards. Although netting just six goals, Cairney has set up a further 10 for his teammates in 2014 and without him in the side Blackburn are a much weaker side.

Completing the midfield is Derby man Craig Bryson. Another Scottish player to feature in the side and not the last. Bryson was unlucky to miss out on both promotion and recognition at the end of season awards in the summer. With clubs looking to tempt him away from the iPro the former Kilmarnock man committed his future to the Rams. He has continued his fine form this season taking his goal tally in 2014 to eight goals and a further 10 assists for his teammates.
