The action continues for a few of our players out on loan, including successful performances in play-offs…
Mason Mount and Matt Miazga were two of the stars for Vitesse Arnhem as the Dutch club booked their place in next season's Europa League, by beating Utrecht 5-3 on aggregate in their qualification play-off.
Midfielder Mount gave Utrecht an early warning in the home leg last Tuesday, when he struck the post, going on to head in the opening goal just before half-time (pictured above), setting Vitesse on their way to 3-2 win. His yellow card in that match meant he was suspended for the return match on Sunday, but defender Miazga turned goalscorer to head in from a corner, as they finished the job with another win, this time 2-1.
Tomas Kalas came off the bench for Fulham in the second half of their Championship play-off second-leg win against Derby. He was part of a 2-0 triumph that bettered Derby's 1-0 victory in the first leg, and secured Fulham’s place at Wembley for the play-off final against Aston Villa this Saturday. Kasey Palmer was also a substitute in that second leg, coming on for the Rams after 67 minutes.
Danilo Pantic took just three minutes to open the scoring in Partizan Belgrade's final league game at Spartak Subotica. They went on to win 2-0, having already guaranteed their second-place finish in Serbia.
There was a frustrating end to the season for Bekanty Victorien Angban, as he was shown a red card shortly before half-time in Waasland-Beveren's 3-1 defeat to Kortrijk in their last game of the season, meaning they finished in fifth place in their Europa League play-off group in Belgium.
Mitchell Beeney played both of Sligo Rovers' matches last week, following up Tuesday's 2-0 defeat at St Patrick's with a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw against Shamrock Rovers on Saturday.
