Jonathan Obika scored his first goal for Millwall as the Lions continue their charge in League One.

The striker swivelled to shoot home from close range for the fifth of Millwall's five goals as they hammered Stockport 5-0 at the New Den. They are now third and have pulled level on points with Leeds, who lost at leaders Norwich.

Adel Taarabt had another stormer for QPR in the Championship. Adel forced two fine saves from Preston keeper Andy Lonergan in the first half but Rangers found themselves 2-0 down at the start of the second half.

Adel then set up goals for Peter Ramage and Tamas Priskin as his side levelled and then played in Rowan Vine for the chance to win it, only for Lonergan to save again.

It wasn't the best of days for our loanees in League Two. David Button saw Shrewsbury's recent dip in form continue with a disastrous 2-0 home defeat against bottom side Darlington while Adam Smith also played 90 minutes at Torquay lost at Morcambe.

Of our more senior players out on loan, Robbie Keane made it 11 goals in 11 games for Celtic with two in a 3-1 win against Kilmarnock, including a delightful opener.

In Turkey, Giovani dos Santos played 90 minutes as Galatasaray suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Fenerbache. They are now third in the Turkish Supa Lig, two points behind Besiktas and five behind leaders Bursaspor but with a game in hand on each.

San Jose Earthquakes kicked-off the MLS season in America with a 3-0 home defeat against reigning champions Real Salt Lake on Saturday.

Javier Morales and Fabian Espindola left the Earthquakes chasing the game at 2-0 down in the first half and the task became all-but impossible 10 minutes into the second half when Chris Leitch was sent off for a foul on the edge of the box and Morales curled home the free-kick for 3-0.

Artur Alvarez hit the post but there was little for a record crowd of 10,589 to cheer about at the Buck Shaw Stadium. Earthquakes next face Chicago Fire on April 10.

In Brazil, Internacional take on Cerro of Uruguay in their latest Copa Libertadores match on Wednesday while in Hong Kong, South China are top of the First Division after beating closest rivals TSW Pegasus on Sunday.
