Jake Hastie – Rotherham United

Jake’s corner was turned into his own net by Rob Kiernan as Rotherham drew 2-2 at Southend United in League One. That had the Millers 1-0 up in Essex before Southend hit back to lead 2-1 just after the break. Sam Mantom leveled matters on the hour mark, however, to ensure a share of the spoils. Rotherham are sitting in the sixth and final play-off spot, and host Fleetwood this Saturday.

Jason Holt – St Johnstone

Jason played 80 minutes and helped his St Johnstone side haunt his old club Hearts with a 1-0 win at Tynecastle to lift the Saints off the bottom of the table. Callum Hendry grabbed the only goal of the game with 16 minutes left to play, meaning St Johnstone are now 10th in the Scottish Premiership – three ahead of 11th-placed Hearts having played a game less. Holt and Saints host St Mirren at McDiarmid Park on Saturday.

After taking the lead in Lancashire, Pompey were pegged-back before the break and then conceded three before reply in the second half. Portsmouth are now 10th in League One, though that’s just three points off the play-off spots.
