Rhys Williams (Blackpool)

Williams played 90 minutes as his side fell to a 1-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers, before he was handed another 68 minutes as they scraped a 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

Tyler Morton (Blackburn Rovers)

Morton helped Blackburn to victory over Williams’ side in midweek, playing 90 minutes in the heart of midfield. He was handed a third consecutive start against Bristol City, but could not prevent his side slipping to a 3-2 defeat.

Conor Bradley (Bolton Wanderers)

Bradley enjoyed a fine afternoon as his side came back from a goal down to beat Charlton Athletic 3-1. The youngster grabbed the first goal (amid suspicions of handball) before turning provider for the second goal, sweeping in a low pass that was turned home.

The result lifted the Wanderers to 8th in League One.

James Balagizi (Crawley Town)

Balagizi played 89 minutes as his side held high-flying Salford to a 2-2 draw, but could not get himself on the scoresheet on this occasion.

Adam Lewis (Newport County)

Adam Lewis was not in the Newport squad for their 2-0 defeat to Grimsby Town.

Leighton Clarkson (Aberdeen)

Clarkson managed just under 70 minutes for Aberdeen as they were held to a draw by Ross County, but could not really influence proceedings.
