We at All Out Football posed the simple question on our Twitter account, who should feature in our best League One XI side. As ever there are always plenty of different opinions in what is usually such a tightly contested division. Here is the verdict our footballing community came to.
Goalkeeper – Neil Etheridge
The 26 year old occupies the spot between the sticks, with the Walsall man being voted the best ‘keeper in League One.
Centre Back – Ethan Ebanks-Landell
On loan from Wolves, Ebanks-Landell slots in as a centre back for this side having made a positive impression for table toppers Sheffield United.
Centre Back – David Wheater
The experienced defender has been with Bolton since 2011 and is a commanding figure at the back for the Trotters. Wheater stole his position in the team ahead of Mark Beevers and Peter Clarke.
Centre Back – James Meredith
The Australian left back fits in out of position but was the standout candidate in his favoured position. His impressive performances for Bradford have raised interest from Championship clubs.
Left Midfielder – Josh Morris
17 goals and 9 assists from midfield meant Morris was always going to be selected. He was in fact the most popular pick out of the lot as he has been a crucial factor in seeing Scunthorpe sit in an automatic promotion spot.
Central Midfielder – Jay Spearing
The former Liverpool man is another player to have stuck with Bolton for a fair while now and his midfield qualities have earned him a spot in the best League One XI.
Central Midfielder – Erhun Oztumer
Standing at 5 foot 2, the ‘Turkish Messi’ has been a steal for the Saddlers, signing on a free transfer from Peterborough. What he lacks he height in makes up for in technical ability which made him a favourite amongst League One fans.
Right Midfielder – Josh Vela
Slotted out of position, Vela was another player fans believed had to be in this side. He completes a hat-trick of Bolton players in this team with the club currently in third position.
Striker – Matty Taylor
16 goals for the Bristol Rovers man this term means Taylor is continuing to show his pedigree as a real hotshot in the football league following a 27 goal return in League Two last campaign.

Striker – James Vaughan
Vaughan was always going to find the net at this level provided he stayed fit. That’s exactly what he’s done, banging in 16 league goals.
Striker – Billy Sharp
A clear favourite in this side, Bill Sharp is the League’s top scorer with 18 goals and his reputation speaks for itself, it was difficult for fans not to include him.
