Promotion-chasing Barnsley dominate the Professional Footballers' Association League One Team of the Year.

Goalkeeper Adam Davies, defenders Dimitri Cavare and Ethan Pinnock, midfielder Alex Mowatt and 16-goal striker Kieffer Moore made the XI voted for by their fellow players.

Leaders Luton, meanwhile, have two representatives in the side, defender James Justin and forward James Collins. The latter scored his 24th league goal of the season in the 2-2 draw against AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday night.

The Hatters pulled clear at the top of the table following a 29-match unbeaten league run, which was finally brought to an end at Charlton on April 13, as Mick Harford's side look to secure a return to the Championship.

Doncaster striker John Marquis, who has scored 19 goals, completes the line-up, with Rovers looking to hold off their rivals and secure a place in the top six.

The players will be honoured at the PFA's annual awards ceremony in London on Sunday April 28.
