Dougall scored his first goal for Blackpool as they secured a 2-0 win at Oxford on Saturday. His goal came about after he poked home following a skirmish in the 18 yard area.

Blackpool manager, Neil Critchley, was full of superlatives for Dougall in his post-match interview.

“It was a nice moment for him [Dougall] and I thought his general contribution to the game was excellent today,” Critchley said.

“A great moment for him."

In the Israeli Premier League, Rukavytsya was back on the scoresheet for Maccabi Haifa as they registered a 2-0 win against Maccabi Netanya in their final match of the regular season.

Ruka scored his first goal since the end of January to put an end to a frustrating spell which has seen him absent for much of the last two months.

He finished top of the goalscoring charts with 18 goals to his name as his side now turn their attention to the championship playoffs.

The playoffs are also what lie ahead for Awer Mabil's FC Midjtylland, who enjoyed an emphatic 5-0 win over Vejle Boldklub over the weekend. 

The Socceroos winger played 90 minutes and set up the Danish side's second, third and fourth goals.

Over to Japan where Mitch Langerak picked up his fifth straight clean sheet of the season as his Nagoya Grampus recorded a 1-0 triumph at Kashima Antlers on Sunday.

Harry Souttar and his Stoke City earnt their 18th clean sheet of the season as they saw off Derby County by the odd goal in their Championship clash on Saturday.

The Potters may sit in 11th position on the table, but they are equal top alongside promotion-chasing Watford and Swansea on the clean sheet leader board.

In Scotland, Jackson Irvine and Martin Boyle put in full shifts for Hibernian as they came from behind to share the points in a 1-1 draw with Livingston.

Tom Rogic was introduced as a late substitute as Celtic played out an identical scoreline, with their Old Firm encounter with Rangers ending a goal apiece. 

Over to Belgium where Trent Sainsbury started and played just over 60 minutes for Kortrijk as they were beaten 2-0 at Eupen.
