On-loan goalkeeper Luke McGee saved a second-half penalty to preserve a point for Peterborough United away at Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night.

After impressively turning away a pair of shots from Shaun Whalley, the 21-year-old kept out Ian Black’s spot kick with the scores level at 1-1. That’s how it stayed in the League One contest, with Luke having now played the last four games in a row for the Posh. Attacker Nathan Oduwa was an unused substitute for Peterborough on Tuesday, having been introduced off the bench during Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with Walsall.

On Sunday, Clinton Njie scored his first goal for Marseille as they came back from 1-0 down to win 2-1 at home to Nantes in Ligue 1. That was the Cameroon international’s fourth appearance for the French side, having made his debut as a substitute against Nice on September 11.

On Thursday night (September 29), Federico Fazio (pictured, below) scored Roma's second goal in their 4-0 home victory over Astra in the Europa League. The defender, starting his fifth game in a row in all competitions for the Serie A side, netted two minutes into stoppage time at the end of the first half.

Will Miller has also experienced further game time for Championship side Burton Albion of late, starting in a 1-0 defeat at home to Brighton & Hove Albion on September 17 and stepping off the bench in a 3-1 defeat at Norwich City a week later, while Nabil Bentaleb has started all six of Schalke’s games since linking up with the German side, the most recent of which was a 2-1 loss at Hoffenheim on Sunday.
