Sam Johnstone is our loan star for the second week running after extending his run of clean sheets to three for Walsall. The goalkeeper kept out Yeovil in a goalless Good Friday draw and played his part in a convincing 4-0 win against 10-man Coventry on Monday.
In the Premier League, Fabio was not involved in QPR’s 3-2 defeat to London rivals Fulham, with our former number 9 Dimitar Berbatov netting twice for the Cottagers, and Angelo Henriquez again failed to get off the bench in Wigan’s priceless 1-0 victory over Norwich. The youngster subsequently lost his place in the Chile squad in last month’s qualifiers so will be hoping to play a part in Wigan’s exciting run-in where they could reach the FA Cup final.
Leicester’s promotion bid in the Championship has hit trouble but Michael Keane played well in the 1-0 loss to Millwall on Friday before unluckily putting through his own net during the 2-0 defeat at Barnsley. Crystal Palace’s form has also dipped as Wilfried Zaha’s side were beaten 1-0 at Blackpool after he missed the 4-0 home thumping by Birmingham.
Davide Petrucci and Scott Wootton remain sidelined by injury at Peterborough while Reece Brown was an unused substitute in Ipswich’s 3-0 triumph against Leeds.
Sean McGinty played in defence for Tranmere in consecutive 1-0 reverses to Sheffield United and Portsmouth.
Bebe was replaced after 76 minutes of Rio Ave’s 6-1 battering at the hands of leaders Benfica and Federico Macheda was thrown on for the final minute of Stuttgart’s 2-1 home loss to Borussia Dortmund. Luke Giverin did not play in Royal Antwerp’s 1-1 draw with Westerlo.
