Southampton loanee Alfie Jones played the full 90 minutes of Gillingham's 2-2 draw with Rochdale, which extended their unbeaten League 1 run to nine games.

Steve Evans side continue to be difficult for sides to beat, as Rochdale found to their misfortune when the Gills visited Spotland Stadium on Saturday.

Jones played the duration whilst the fellow Saints loanne playing his football in Kent this season, Tom O’Connor, missed the trip with a hamstring injury picked up during the week.

Elsewhere in the football league, Harrison Reed missed out on further action for Fulham as he continues to recover from a calf injury.

In Europe, Galatasary’s Mario Lemina scored a late winner at home to Rizespor in the Turkish Cup on Thursday, as his side secured a quarter-final spot with a 2-1 win.

Lemina also played the full 90 on Sunday as Fatih Terim’s side made it three league wins on the bounce with a 3-0 away victory over Konyaspor.

In Scotland, Fraser Forter played the duration in Celtic’s wins over Kilmarnock and Ross County in the Scottish Premier League.

The results mean the Hoops are unbeaten in three since their Old Firm defeat and remain five points clear of Rangers at the top of the league standings.

Fellow Saints loanee plying his trade at Celtic, Mohamed Elyounoussi, remained out with a foot injury.

In Spain, Guido Carrillo came on as a 78th minute sub as La Liga strugglers Leganés earned a valuable point at fifth placed Atlético Madrid.

Finally, Christoph Klarer continued his impressive start to his loan spell with SKN St.Pölten with a cleansheet in a 0-0 draw in a pre-season friendly with FK Sotchi.
