Lasha Dvali - Kasimpasa (Turkish Super Lig) Appearances: 4

Dvali scored his first goal for Kasimpasa on his 4th start for the club last week, but unfortunately it was at the wrong end, as his Kasimpasa side drew 2-2 with Akhisar Belediyespor to drop to 9th. Goals from Adem Buyuk and Ezequiel Scarione had given Kasimpasa a 2-0 advantage, but Dvali's own goal gave Akhisar hope, before Bruno Mezenga equalised for the away side as they snatched a point to rise to 11th.

Dom Hyam - Hemel Hempstead (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 6

Dom also completed 90 minutes last week against Bath City, but he couldn't prevent his side slipping to just their first defeat in seven, as Bath ran out comfortable 3-0 victors. Frankie Artus put City ahead on the strike of half time, before two late goals from Ross Stearn and David Pratt sealed the points. Hemel stay 8th, Bath City rise to 11th.

Rob Dickie/Stuart Moore - Basingstoke Town (Vanarama Conference South) Appearances: 15/38

Basingstoke's promotion challenge continued last week, as Town beat Bath City 3-2. This week, Chelmsford were the hosts, with Moore and Dickie's side looking to keep touch with Bromley and Boreham Wood ahead of them. Chelmsford lead early on through the free-scoring Michael Cheek, and although Manny Williams equalised from the spot in the 89th minute, Town will feel this is another two points dropped against tenth placed City. Basingstoke are now five points off the top in third.

Jon Henly - Welling United (Vanarama Conference Prem) Appearances: 19

Welling stopped their run of eight consecutive defeats with a plucky 1-1 draw with Gateshead last week, but they remain without a win in 12 games. Dominic Vose's 81st minute strike cancelled out Alex Rodman's early opener, but Welling remain in the bottom four, three points adrift of safety.

Aaron Tshibola - Hartlepool United (SkyBet League Two) Appearances: 12

Tshibola played 90 minutes last weekend, but a stoppage time goal from Florent Cuvelier saw his Hartlepool side slip to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Burton Albion. Tshibola was booked in the 58th minute, as his side fell to their fourth defeat in five, and remain eight points adrift at the foot of the Football League.

Craig Tanner - AFC Wimbledon (SkyBet League Two) Appearances: 8

Tanner was a 78th minute substitute in Wimbledon's game against York City last week, and, with the match finely poised at 1-1, Wimbledon's Jack Smith scored what turned out to be the winner in stoppage time to see his side rise to 11th. They're next in action against Exeter City on Saturday.

Dominic Samuel - Coventry City (SkyBet League One) Appearances: 8

Samuel started in Coventry's match against Port Vale last week, but his side slipped to a 3-2 defeat, with goals from Tom Pope, Mark Marshall and Michael O'Connor condemned Coventry to another defeat to leave them just two points above the drop zone. James O'Brien had given Coventry the lead, before Pope and then Marshall put Vale ahead. Sanmi Odelusi put City on terms, but O'Connor's winner lifted them to 11th.

Coventry then played Bradford the following Tuesday, but Samuel was dropped to the bench for this one. He replaced Odelusi in the 57th minute, with his City side 1-0 up through Frank Nouble, but Mark Yeates salvaged a point for the FA Cup quarter-finalists, as they rise to ninth.

LOANEE OF THE WEEK:

Jon Henly helped his side stop the rot of eight consecutive defeats last week, making a string of fine saves to deny Gateshead the winner. He will hope he his side can continue to improve their results, as they bid to survive the drop.
