United's Chliean forward is doing the business at the DW

United’s Chliean forward isn’t getting games at the DW.

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.
