Michael Hector- Aberdeen (SPFL Premiership) Appearances: 3
Motherwell 1-3 Aberdeen
Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic
Hearts 2-1 Aberdeen
At Aberdeen, Michael Hector has been the first choice centre-back for the 3 games since we last checked up on the London-born defender. He was booked but otherwise mentioned for his solidity and tackling ability during the Dons 3-1 win away to Motherwell, and played the full 90 minutes in defeats to Celtic and Hearts. He was then rested for the League Cup victory over Alloa on penalties. Aberdeen currently sit 4th in the Scottish Premiership table.
Daniel Carrico- Sevilla (Liga BBVA) Appearances: 0
Daniel has been sidelined with a thigh strain and hasn’t made any appearances for Sevilla in their Europa League qualifiers or opening La Liga games.
Mikkel Andersen- Randers (Danish Superliga) Appearances: 4 Clean Sheets: 1
Rubin Kazan 2-0 Randers
Rander 1-3 Midtjylland
Randers 3-2 Esberg
Brondby 0-0 Randers
Mikkel Andersen’s Randers side saw their European dream end at the 3rd qualifying round of the Europa League, a 4-1 aggregate loss to last year’s quarter-finalists Rubin Kazan. Mikkel played the entire game against the Russians, as he did in the 3 league games that leave Randers 6th in their league. Recent form has included a clean sheet for the Dane away to struggling Brondby, and a win via two late goals against Esberg that followed a 3-1 defeat to leaders Midjtylland.
Nick Arnold- Wycombe Wanderers (Skybet League Two) Appearances: 2
Wycombe 0-1 Mansfield
Oxford United 2-2 Wycombe
An unused substitute in Wycombe’s 1-0 defeat away to AFC Wimbledon; Arnold was drafted in to start the equally unsuccessful game at home to League football returnees Mansfield. A lively 76 minute performance was tainted by a yellow card, yet considered enough to go on and play the next game in full. Arnold was denied a superb first professional goal, but his chip was clawed off the line by Oxford’s keeper in an eventful 2-2 draw against Dave Kitson’s latest club.
