Southampton's out on loan midfielder Harrison Reed played his part in Fulham’s West London derby win over QPR on Friday night.
Aboubakar Kamara was the star of the show at Craven Cottage as his two goals moved the Championship side up to fourth in the table.
Unfortunately Reed was forced off with an injury in the 54th minute, but the Cottagers still went on to record a 2-1 victory over their local rivals.
It was also a successful weekend for Fraser Foster; his efforts keeping out 8th placed Livingston at Celtic Park on Saturday not only helped the league leaders to a 4-0 victory, but also saw him top the league’s clean sheet tally charts for the season.
The fellow Saint loanee enjoying life north of the border, Mohamed Elyounoussi, was not included in the match-day squad after being injured whilst on international duty with Norway during the week.
In Europe, defender Wesley Hoedt played the full 90 minutes for fourth placed Royal Antwerp, as they equalised in the 94th minute at third place Gent in the Belgian Pro League.
The late leveller, courtesy of Zinho Gano, means Antwerp remain a point behind Sunday’s hosts and continues Hoedt’s run of playing every minute of league action since joining at the start of September.
Back in England and League One, both Alfie Jones and Tom O’Connor were involved as Gillingham fell to a 1-0 defeat away at AFC Wimbledon.
Jones continued his record of featuring in all but one of the Gills’ league outings this season, whilst O’Connor returned to action for 60 minutes following his international commitments last week.
In Non-league, Marcus Barnes continued his recovery from an injury which saw him out for two weeks by playing 81 minutes for Eastleigh away at Halifax.
The Spitfires notched a vital point against their high-flying opponents in the National League; Reda Johnson heading in the equaliser after 55 minutes.
National League South side Havant & Waterlooville will have Saints’ young goalkeeper Kingsley Latham to thank for his part in their 3-1 FA Trophy victory over Cinderford Town on Saturday.
Meanwhile another young goalkeeper, Alex Cull, pulled off a string of impressive saves but was unable to stop a 96th minute Melksham Town equaliser to make it 2-2 at AFC Totton in the Southern Division One South.
