TOWERING South Elmsall centre-back Jamie McCombe has been included in this week’s npower League One Team of the Week.

Former Frickley Athletic man McCombe scored Huddersfield Town’s goal in their 1-1 draw with promotion rivals MK Dons at the Glapharm Stadium on Saturday.

McCombe headed home Kallum Higginbotham’s cross on the stroke of half-time to give the Terriers the lead but the Dons took a point thanks to Stephen Gleeson’s second-half free-kick.

The 29-year-old is currently enjoying a good spell with Town after being sent out on-loan to Preston North End in November.

His performances at Deepdale have seemingly won the praise of Huddersfield boss Lee Clark, who has made McCombe a permanent fixtutre in Town’s defence.

The full team is: David Martin (MK Dons), Frank Simek (Carlisle), Gary MacKenzie (MK Dons), Jamie McCombe (Huddersfield), Ben Parker (Carlisle), Drew Talbot (Chesterfield), Gareth Ainsworth (Wycombe), Jose Semedo (Wednesday), Jermaine Johnson (Wednesday), Matthew Whichelow (Wycombe), Higginbotham (Huddersfield)
