Southampton's loanees have been in action as the campaigns in England and abroad enter the business end, with an impressive week for goalkeeper Ollie Wright in our latest Loan Watch...

Since his return from injury a fortnight ago, Wright has helped Worthing to a four-game winning streak in the Vanarama National League South.

He saved a penalty against Yeovil to postpone their title celebrations as Worthing won 3-1 at Huish Park.

Wright then featured as The Rebels secured themselves a play-off finish with a 2-1 win over Dartford in midweek.

Elsewhere in non-league, Jake Vokins played his third consecutive game for Eastleigh in the National League.

The Spitfires boosted their survival hopes with a narrow win over York City, as Vokins played 90 minutes with fellow-Saints loanee Will Merry watching from the bench.

Up in SkyBet League Two, Derrick Abu made his return to Harrogate Town’s starting line-up for the first time in four games as be played the majority of a 1-0 win over Grimsby Town.

Meanwhile, in Europe, Charly Alcaraz picked up more minutes for Juventus in Serie A as a late substitute in back-to-back wins over Lazio and Fiorentina.

Also earning consecutive wins was Duje Ćaleta-Car, who continued his recent form with Lyon.

The Croatian centre-back helped his side reach the Coupe de France final - knocking out Valenciennes - before beating FC Nantes in Ligue 1.

Goalkeeper Mateusz Lis had mixed fortunes for Göztepe as they suffered their first league defeat in ten games before bouncing back with a clean sheet in a 3-0 victory.

Finally, Lyanco returned to action with Al-Gharafa and earned a place in the Team of the Week for his performance in the Qatar Stars League.
