Kurt Abrahams

Came off at the break for Westerlo as they suffered a 2-1 away loss to Darren Keet's OH Leuven - leaving them in third place in the Proximus League.

Keanin Ayer

Ayer is now one game away from a historic title win with Varberg as they face off against second-placed Mjallby next week for a thrilling season finale.

Their 1-1 draw with Sunday against Brommapojkarna was a chance missed, however, it's all but mathematically secured their promotion to the Swedish Allsvenskan.

Central to their recent success has been Bafana Bafana hopeful Tom Barkhuizen, who bagged another brace in their 3-2 win over Blackburn Rovers.

The pacey forward has now scored seven goals in 13 starts this season.

Thabo Cele / Sergio Marakis

Marakis is seemingly keeping the South Africa U23 star on the bench this season for Cova da Piedade, as he played the full 90 minutes in their 1-0 loss to Sporting Covilhã.

Mihlali Mayambela

The Farense winger lasted 86 minutes of Sunday’s 1-0 home win over Leixoes - moving them into second-place and on course for promotion.

Lebogang Moloto 

Scored for Nashville and then came off after 81 minutes of Saturday’s 3-1 home Play-Off win over Charleston Battery. 

Lebo Mothiba 

After a miserable start to the new season, Mothiba finally made his mark with his first assist, which proved pivotal as Strasbourg picked up a 1-0 win over Nice.

The victory moved them into 16th place after starting the weekend at the foot of the Ligue 1 table.

Ayanda Patosi 

Started his seventh game of the season in central midfield for Baniyas in their 1-1 home draw with Khorfakkan.

Lebogang Phiri

An ever-present figure for Guingamp this season, Phiri played the full 90 minutes of their Ligue 2 defeat to Clermont - as they dropped down to 12th place in Ligue 2.

Thulani Serero

Under new management at Al Jazira, Serero has maintained his key role in midfield as he orchestrated a 3-2 win over Kalba on Sunday.

The Bafana Bafana playmaker's side moved into fourth place with three points in the UAE Pro League.

Luther Singh 

Singh made his third start for Moreirense in their 1-1 draw with Boavista - his loan side are now in 11th place in the Primeira Liga.

Percy Tau

After playing the full 90 minutes against Paris Saint-Germain in mid-week, Tau was rewarded with another start for Club Brugge in a top-of-the-table clash against Standard Liege.

However, the 25-year-old was hauled off at the break in the 1-1 draw, which leaves Brugge at the top of the Belgian First League A and still unbeaten in domestic competitions.

Lars Veldwijk

Veldwijk has seemingly fallen out of favour with manager Henk Fraser, with the captain failing to start in one Eredivisie game in the 2019/20 season.

He came on for the final six minutes of their 2-1 home loss to Utrecht, which leaves him on three goals in 10 appearances in the league.
