Our on-loan midfielder enjoyed a fine outing at Carrow Road – capped off when he converted a penalty in the 71st minute to secure the points for his side, after Norwich had cancelled out the Bees’ first half opener.

Elsewhere in the Championship, Milos Veljkovic made his debut for Charlton Athletic in their goalless draw at Wolves, going straight into the starting line-up before being withdrawn seven minutes from time.

In the FA Cup Fourth Round, midfielder Tom Carroll started for Swansea City in their trip to Blackburn Rovers but was sacrificed after just nine minutes when Kyle Bartley’s dismissal forced manager Garry Monk to make changes. His side went on to lose 3-1, finishing the game with nine men.

Young defender Dominic Ball, meanwhile, was an unused substitute for League Two Cambridge United as they held Premier League giants Manchester United to a goalless draw at home – setting up an Old Trafford replay.

In League Two, Shaq Coulthirst was on the bench for Southend United as they won 2-1 at Portsmouth.
