Lazar Markovic – Hull City
Markovic had an excellent game for Hull and managed to bag himself a goal during the 2-0 victory over Watford. Hull played with 10 men for most of the game and the Serbian capped off a great counter attacking move to put his side a goal up. His initial header clipped the underside of the crossbar and might have crossed the line, but he showed exceptional awareness to put the rebound into the back of the net for good measure. The goal was his second for the club and the victory leaves the Tigers two points above the relegation zone.
Danny Ward – Huddersfield Town
The goalkeeper would’ve been disappointed with his efforts as he conceded four first-half goals against playoff rivals Fulham. He could’ve perhaps done better on two of the strikes, but the other two definitely weren’t his fault. Ward was sent the wrong way with a penalty and a defensive error left him stranded with three Fulham strikers bearing down on him. Luckily the second half was a lot quieter as the game finished 4-1.
Ryan Kent – Barnsley
Kent was the standout performer for his team but ultimately found himself on the losing side. The midfielder didn’t get on the scoresheet but played some lovely creative football during the entertaining 3-2 defeat at the hands of Bristol City.
Ryan Fulton – Chesterfield
The 20-year-old was facing off against Steven Gerrard’s cousin, Anthony, when his side played Oldham Athletic. Chesterfield were just edged out in a tight encounter that ended 1-0. Fulton has been enjoying a productive loan spell and has conceded just four goals in his last six appearances.
Andre Wisdom – Red Bull Salzburg
The defender played the full 90 minutes in the 2-1 away win over St. Polten. Wisdom’s solid performance ensured that the Austrian side continued their 14 game unbeaten run in the league. The three points leaves them needing just four points from the last six games to secure their fourth title in as many years.
Pedro Chirivella – Go Ahead Eagles
The Spaniard was one the lesser effective players on his team, as they went down 3-2 to FC Groningen, thanks to an injury time winner. The defeat was the Eagles fourth in a row and leaves them needing to make up a five-point gap in just two games, if they are to avoid automatic relegation.
Allan Rodrigues – Hertha Berlin
Allan put in a solid performance as he started for the second game in a row. He controlled the play from the centre of midfield and completed the full 90 minutes, picking up a yellow card in the process. He was a key figure in helping Berlin beat Wolfsburg 1-0.
Brooks Lennon – Real Salt Lake City
After scoring his first professional goal last week, Lennon had a very different game against Atlanta United. The young American had very little impact during the match, as Real Salt Lake ended up losing 3-1 in front of their home crowd.
Mamadou Sakho (Crystal Palace) was ineligible to play against his parent club this weekend, while Jon Flanagan (Burnley) and Taiwo Awoniyi (NEC Nijmegen) were both unused substitutes.
