Lots of snow has fallen across the country this week but, despite the weather, we still have three matches to round up in England's 4th, 5th and 6th divisions. Let's get started...

Aaron Tshibola - Hartlepool United (SkyBet League Two) Appearances: 3

Tshibola's Hartlepool side travelled to Shrewsbury this week looking to make it back-to-back wins for the first time this season following last week's victory over Cheltenham Town. Unfortunately, the 'Pools came up against a strong opposition as the Shrews put them to the sword with a comfortable victory thanks to a brace from Andy Mangan (49' and 68') and a strike from James Collins (59'). Tshibola played the full 90 minutes but couldn't prevent his side from slipping to a comprehensive defeat and their 17th in the league this season.

Jon Henly - Welling United (Vanarama Conference Premier) Appearances: 14

Scotland's youth international started in Welling's game against Alfreton Town this week following last weekend's break. However, Henly couldn't prevent Alfreton going 2-0 up - both goals from the spot - as Welling found themselves 3-0 down before scoring a penalty of their own through Rowan Vine (84'). They also pulled another back thanks to Chris Bush in stoppage time but couldn't find the equaliser as they slipped to a defeat that sees them drop to 19th in the league. That's no win in five now for the Wings.

Rob Dickie/Stuart Moore - Basingstoke Town (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 6/29

Last Saturday, Stuart and Rob both started and completed 90 minutes against Gosport Borough as the third placed side took on their Hampshire rivals. Gosport went ahead early in the second half through Justin Bennett and, as the clocked ticked past the 90, Basingstoke looked set for their second consecutive defeat. But, as he has done so often this season, Tom Bird stepped up deep into injury time to salvage a dramatic point for Town.

Stuart was awarded a 6/10 by the Basingstoke Gazette and was said to have not really been tested much although he may feel he could have done more to keep out the Gosport goal. Rob was also given a 7/10 rating and was said to have been strong defensively and made a couple of decent forays forward.
