The League One team of the year was named at the EFL awards ceremony on Thursday night.
And, perhaps unsurprisingly, there was no Ipswich Town representation as the judges named the third tier’s best XI.
Sunderland, likely to be competing in the play-offs, led the way with four selections as goalkeeper Lee Burge, right-back Luke O’Nien and forwards Aiden McGeady and Charlie Wyke were selected.
Peterborough, who could secure automatic promotion this weekend, have three selections in the form of 31-goal leading scorer Jonson Clarke-Harris, centre-half Mark Beevers and wide man Joe Ward.
Table-topping Hull have two players in the XI, in the form of captain George Honeyman and former Town loanee Callum Elder at left-back, while Oxford United and Lincoln are represented by Rob Atkinson and Jorge Grant respectively.
The team is managed by Hull boss Grant McCann, while Clarke-Harris also picked up the League One player-of-the-year award on the back of a stunning season which is likely to secure him a big-money move this summer, regardless of whether Posh win promotion or not.
Clarke-Harris said: “This one’s top, for me, and it would mean even more if we can win promotion at the weekend," he said.
