Reece Brown: Reece Brown started for Coventry City when they took on Crewe away from home. Coventry City were eager to get their first league win of the season, especially after their winner in extra-time in midweek vs Birmingham in the second round of the League Cup. Reece Brown almost pulled Coventry level in added time when the Crewe defence only half-cleared a McSheffrey cross and the loanee hit the ball on the volley but straight at Osman’s face.

Coventry were unable continue their midweek form, as they lost the game 1-0. Reece Brown however, played the full 90 minutes and he picked up a yellow card in the 74th minute for unsporting behavior.

Sean McGinty: No league start for Sean McGinty as of yet after he was handed a rare start for Oxford United in their midweek game for the League Cup. Oxford United were league leaders before the game kicked off. But unfortunately for Sean McGinty, he remained an unused sub as Oxford United lost the game 3-1.

Fabio Da Silva: Fabio Da Silva started the game for QPR as they took on Manchester City in the last Premier League game of this Saturday. Fabio cleared an effort off the line to deny City taking the lead in the 12th minute. Fabio had an overall more than decent game for QPR, completing another 90 minutes for QPR. But unfortunately, he couldn’t prevent defeat for the Hoops. QPR were beaten 3-1.

Ben Amos: Ben Amos started in goal for Hull City on Saturday as they faced Bolton Wanderers, with former red Chris Eagles in their squad, in their fourth League game of this season. And of all people, Eagles opened the scoring as his deflected shot passed Ben Amos and made it 0-1 Bolton.  Amos did well to keep Eagles out for his second attempt as the first half entered added time.

At half-time the game was balanced at 1-1. With two quick goals after half-time, Hull City won the game 3-1. Encouraging signs for Steve Bruce’s side and Hull City side took themselves into the play-off spots. They are currently sitting fifth in the table.

John Cofie: John Cofie was handed another start, as the last minute signing of Dave Kitson was not completed in time to play. It does make you wonder if that signing will affect his loan-spell at Sheffield. The Blades took on Bournemouth at home and Cofie was eager to build on his excellent goal in their last game against Colchester, and he did.

John Cofie gives the Blades a two goal advantage with an unstoppable drive, just before the interval. It was 3-1 Sheffield United at half-time. John Cofie got substituted in the 60th minute for Sheffield United but his goal was a major contribution in Sheffield United’s 5-3 win over rivals over

Luke Giverin and Gyliano van Velzen: Gyliano van Velzen and Luke Giverin made their full debuts for Royal Antwerp on Sunday. Both played the full 90 minutes in a much changed side for the reds. Gyliano van Velzen was involved in a few attacks for Antwerp and his well set up attack for Luke Giverin was unfortunately missing the goal that would have topped it off.

Their debut ended in a 1-2 win for Royal Antwerp, away from home. Luke Giverin will wear the number 25 and Gyliano van Velzen will wear the number 14 for Royal Antwerp, this season.
