Carlisle United's Chris Beech has been named League Two's top boss after the Blues' impressive victory over Colchester.

Beech is the division's manager of the week in the latest official EFL standings.

And one of the players who helped the Cumbrians to Saturday's 3-2 win - forward Lewis Alessandra - is named in both the fourth tier's team of the week and the overall EFL weekly XI.

Alessandra got United's opening goal - his first in the league this season - and set up their second for Jon Mellish as the Blues moved up to fifth in the table.

Alessandra was the only United player in the fourth-tier XI despite Carlisle's strong display.

Crawley have three players included - George Francomb, Tyler Frost and Jack Powell - after their 4-0 thrashing of Morecambe. 

Port Vale's Scott Brown is in goal, while Bradford have Connor Wood and Anthony O'Connor in the team, with in-form Cambridge also supplying two players in frontman Joe Ironside and Harrison Dunk.

Grimsby's Mattie Pollock and George Williams complete the team of the week line-up.
