There were celebrations for Obbi Oulare who scored just a second goal of the season for Willem II to earn them a 1-1 draw at Groningen on Saturday.

The young striker was playing in his second game since a month-long injury lay-off, and finished off Jordy Croux's blocked shot to level the scores.

Steven Berghuis set up Feyenoord's winner as they won 2-1 at Herenveen to open up a six-point lead at the top of Eredivisie on Sunday.

Playing on the left of a front three, the Dutchman grabbed his third assist of the campaign with a fine ball to Tonny Vilhena to run through and score 20 minutes from time to seal a turnaround victory, following Reza Ghoochannejhad's first-half penalty for the hosts.

There is still no reprieve for Adalberto Penaranda who has now not even made the bench for Malaga for a month.

Last night, they played out a 0-0 draw at Leganes, and have scored only two goals in their last five games.

Juan Parades completely missed Olympiakos' 4-1 Europa League defeat by Besiktas on Thursday, despite having played the whole 90 minutes in their victory the previous weekend.

He was also not included in the Greek Super League leaders' squad as they lost 1-0 at rivals Panathinaikos last night.

It was a similar story for Jerome Sinclair whose Birmingham career has come to a standstill.

Walter Mazzarri would have had high hopes for the 20-year-old in the Championship, but he has failed to make the Blues' squad for the past three games, including Saturday's 0-0 draw with Birmingham.

Another loanee, Mario Suarez, has also been frozen out of the Valencia squad and missed their 4-2 defeat at Barcelona yesterday.

Much like his similarly overlooked team-mates, Suarez has not played in any of Los Che's past four games.

Tommie Hoban was unfortunate to be dropped for Blackburn on Saturday, having played the whole 90 minutes in their 2-2 draw at Fulham in midweek.

The Irishman may have been rested by Tony Mowbray after a busy schedule in his first week back in action, and Rovers picked up a third straight 2-2 draw, this time at home to Preston.

One player seeing some first-team action, however, is Uche Agbo. The 21-year-old midfielder played another 90 minutes for Granada in a 3-1 defeat at Gijon yesterday.
