Alex Pritchard was once again on the scoresheet for Brentford in the Championship side’s 2-2 draw with Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

Our on-loan midfielder fired the Bees into a 35th-minute lead at Griffin Park – his 11th goal of the season – before being substituted just after the hour mark.

Dele Alli, crowned Football League Young Player of the Year on Sunday night, was also on target at the weekend – striking MK Dons’ final goal in their 6-1 hammering of Leyton Orient in League One on Saturday afternoon.

His goal arrived nine minutes from time, with the midfielder completing the full match for the hosts.

Elsewhere in that division, midfielder Grant Ward went close to putting Coventry City ahead in their trip to Bristol City – the game ultimately ending 0-0. The point was sufficient to clinch the League One title for the hosts, however, with Grant completing 90 minutes for the Sky Blues.

In addition, defender Bongani Khumalo played the full match for Colchester United as they drew 2-2 at home to Scunthorpe United.

Two of our players got 90 minutes under their belts in League Two on Saturday, defender Dominic Ball helping Cambridge United secure a 3-1 win at home to Mansfield Town and forward Shaq Coulthirst suffering defeat with York City as the Minstermen lost 1-0 at Shrewsbury Town.

In the Premier League, Aaron Lennon won a penalty for Everton in their home game against Burnley – only for team-mate Ross Barkley to be denied from the spot. The Toffees did, however, secure a 1-0 win later on, with Aaron completing the full match.

In the Championship, goalkeeper Jordan Archer was an unused substitute for Millwall in their goalless draw at Cardiff City while, in the German Bundesliga on Sunday, Lewis Holtby played 90 minutes for Hamburg as they lost 1-0 at Werder Bremen.
