Andile Jali scored his first goal of the season for Oostende on his return from injury against Ayanda Patosi's Lokeren, while Kermit Erasmus was denied his Rennes debut in Ligue One on the weekend.
Claasen was not in the match-day squad as 1860 Munich continued their German Bundesliga season after the winter break with a 1-0 home loss to Nurnberg.
Dikgacoi was also an unused substitute for Championship side Cardiff City as they were held 0-0 by lowly Milton Keynes Dons to drop five points off the pace for the promotion play-off places.
There was no sign of Erasmus in the match-day squad for French Ligue 1 side Rennes as they drew 1-1 at Lille.
Jali scored his first goal of the season as his Belgian side KV Oostende defated Lokeren 1-0. Jali had missed the last few games with injury.
Keet was left disappointed after his Kortrijk side were held to a 1-1 draw at home by bottom side Westerlo.
Mahlangu played for Sint Truiden as they defeated Standard Liege 2-1 in a Belgian league clash.
Mokotjo’s FC Twente continued their recent revival with a 3-1 victory at Foppe de Haan’s Heerenveen as they completed back-to-back wins for the first time this season.
Ngcongca played for French Ligue 1 side Troyes as they were defeated 2-0 at Bastia to fall 15 points back from safety.
Ntlhe remains frozen out at third-tier Peterborough United after it was confirmed he would leave the club at the end of the season.
Patosi was back in the Lokeren starting line-up after overcoming injury but was replaced midway through the second half in the 1-0 loss to KV Oostende.
Phete did not feature for Portuguese topflight side Vitoria Guimaraes as they disappointingly drew 1-1 at bottom side Tondela.
Pienaar was on the bench as Everton won 3-0 away at Stoke City to keep their top-six hopes alive after a topsy-turvey English Premier League season.
Serero was not included in the Ajax Amsterdam squad for their top-of-the-table clash against Feyenoord, a sign perhaps of his impending exit from the Dutch club.
