City duo in team of the year

Two Leicester City players have been named as part of the Professional Football Association's Championship Team of the Year.

Andy King and Kyle Naughton have both been key players as Sven Goran Eriksson's Foxes have struggled towards the play-off places having made the club's worst ever start to a season. They were both nominated by their peers to appear in the XI selected by the PFA in an awards dinner that saw King's Wales team-mate Gareth Bale take the overall Player of the Year prize whilst Arsenal's Jack Wilshere picked-up the Young Player of the Year award.

Naughton was chosen as the Championship's best right back, whilst King was selected in the highly competitive central midfield position.
