Bogusz completed 90 minutes but was unable to halt a 3-1 loss to Eibar. The 20-year-old has made seven appearances so far on loan this term, scoring three goals.

Ian Poveda - Blackburn Rovers

The Whites man was an unused substitute for Rovers at the weekend. Tony Mowbray's side were beaten 2-1 by Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

Poveda has made just three appearances on loan this term in the Championship so far - with Rovers sat eighth in the standings.

Blackburn boss Mowbray was asked to assess his spell so far and where Poveda could improve, saying: "Poveda can play off the right coming in on his right foot, he can also play behind the striker, he just wants the ball at his feet and tries to make things happen.

“He can run all day, that’s not a problem for him, it’s just putting him in the team so he understands the demands and the work ethic that’s required.”

Ryan Edmondson - Fleetwood Town

The striker was a late substitute in Fleetwood's 2-1 home defeat to Charlton Athletic in League One.

Edmondson stepped off the bench but was unable to halt the loss.

The 20-year-old is yet to score his first goal on loan but has made eight appearances in total so far under Simon Grayson.

Town are 20th in the table with two wins from 10 league outings.

Alfie McCalmont - Morecambe

McCalmont bagged his first goal of the season for Morecambe on Saturday.

The midfielder recorded his opening assist of the term last week and followed up by finding the back of the net in a 4-3 defeat to Wycombe in League One.

McCalmont has made 11 appearances for the Shrimps this term, which has also seen him involved with Northern Ireland at international level.

Morecambe sit 13th in the standings after 11 games of the campaign.

Bournemouth remain top of the Championship with 25 points from their opening 11 games of the season.

The winger was a late substitute for Valencia in the club's 0-0 draw with Cadiz.

It was just Costa's second appearance from the bench in La Liga since moving to Spain on a season-long loan deal.

Kiko Casilla - Elche

The 35-year-old shot stopper earned a clean sheet in Elche's 1-0 win over Celta Viga in La Liga.
