Defence

Ian EvattWith plenty of outstanding defenders in League 2, picking the best four is a very difficult task. However, there won’t be many people who disagree with the Football League’s picks and first up is York City’s Lanre Oyebanjo. Oyebanjo was an impressive figure in York’s success this season and particularly caught the eye with a string of good performances which coincided with his side’s upturn in results at the turn of the year. Ian Sharps of Burton Albion also made the cut following a very strong season in which he marshalled the defence of a side which made the Play-Off final. Alongside him is another veteran defender; Ian Evatt. In a Chesterfield side which boasts fantastic quality and very skilled players, Evatt has done well to stand out as much as he has – his experience has been crucial in what has been a vintage season in both the league and cup for the Spireites. With plenty of experience in the back line it is fitting that the final component is also 30+. 31-year-old Michael Rose was hugely important in securing Rochdale’s promotion and is a key part in what is a very efficient and well-organised side.
