Danel Sinani's upturn in form continued with a goal and a win with loan club Waasland-Beveren, after a memorable time with Luxembourg for the Norwich City forward.

The 23-year-old started two World Cup qualifiers as a striker as the minnows earned a shock 1-0 win in Ireland and then set up a surprise opener against Portugal, only for a Cristiano Ronaldo goal to help the visitors recover to a 3-1 win. Luxembourg are 95th in the Fifa rankings, 90 places lower than Portugal.

Prior to that international action, Sinani had been on the fringes for struggling Beveren in the Belgian top flight but he earned a first start since January and scored his third goal from 15 appearances overall, opening the scoring with a fine finish from the edge of the box during a 2-0 win at KV Oostende on Saturday.

There was also a goal for striker Josip Drmic on Saturday, heading in the second goal as Rijeka won 4-3 at HNK Gorica in the Croatian top flight, the Swiss international's second goal in nine games. 

Back in England, the Good Friday action saw Tom Trybull return to the Blackburn starting XI and play 72 minutes of a shock 1-0 defeat away to the Championship's bottom side Wycombe.

Sam McCallum made his 29th Championship start of the season but the left-back played all of a disappointing 3-0 loss at QPR.

In League One, defender Akin Famewo missed Charlton's 1-0 win at Doncaster but manager Nigel Adkins expects him back in training next week after a minor knock.
