The 28-year-old's place in the prestigious XI was announced at the glittering PFA awards on Sunday evening, with promoted sides Bournemouth and Doncaster leading the way having earned three and two representatives respectively.

Clarke found the net 11 times in 15 appearances on loan from Charlton at League One rivals Scunthorpe over the first half of the season, persuading the Sky Blues to make a January move for his services.

And his goalscoring exploits continued at the Ricoh Arena, where he added another 10 strikes to his tally before seeing his season cut short at the start of March with an ankle injury.

Elsewhere, Coventry captain Carl Baker has been named as the club's Player of the Season and Players' Player of the Season.

Baker told the club's official website: "It is the best feeling in the world to be honest. To go home to your family with three awards is just incredible.

"It just makes me feel really appreciated here. I wanted to play in as many games as possible this season and be part of everything which happened this season.

"I would swap all the awards I have got for promotion if I'm honest but hopefully that will come next year. To have the captain's armband as well was probably the proudest moment of my career."
