Edmondson completed the full game as Northampton toppled Portsmouth 4-1 in League One.

The Whites striker was handed the man of the match award by local paper Northampton Chronicle.

"Another relentless running display up top," the Chronicle wrote. "His runs and movement troubled Pompey and set the platform for Town's dominant first-half... 9."

Edmondson may have also scored his first goal for the Cobblers since joining on loan in January but the dispute carries on with an adjudication panel required.

The 19-year-old bundled the ball over the line with a shot from teammate Sam Hoskins already on target after a looping effort over the Pompey goalkeeper from distance.

He has made 12 appearances for Town since making the switch from Scottish Premiership outfit Aberdeen due to a lack of match action.

Town are now 19th in League One and victory has eased their relegation fears.

Robbie Gotts - Salford City

Gotts played 64 minutes of Salford's 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe United in League Two.

The 21-year-old returned to the starting line-up and midfield for the The Ammies after being a late substitute in midweek.

Gotts has made 10 appearances for Richie Wellens since joining City in January, scoring two goals and bagging one assist in that time.

The Thorp Arch academy product spent the first half of the season on loan with Lincoln City in League One.

Salford sit 9th in League Two and are in search of a play-off push to end the season.

Alfie McCalmont - Oldham Athletic

McCalmont played the full match as Oldham were held to a 0-0 draw by Southend United.

The Leeds midfielder has established himself as a starter at Boundary Park this season, making 25 appearances in all competitions.

He has scored three goals and recorded four assists this term.

McCalmont, though, saw head coach - and ex-Whites winger - Harry Kewell relieved of his duties this weekend with the Latics sitting 16th in League Two.

Jordan Stevens - Bradford City

Stevens was an 82nd minute substitute for Bradford in a dramatic 1-1 draw with Bolton.

The Bantams struck an equaliser through Danny Rowe in the 93rd minute at Valley Parade to spark wild celebrations.

Stevens has made one start and nine appearances from the bench since moving to the Bantams, having spent the first half of the season with Swindon Town.

City are currently 10th in League Two and a good run of form has seen them surge into play-off contention.

Bryce Hosannah - Bradford City

Hosannah has made eight appearances for Bradford City in League Two this season.

Despite his limited action he has impressed for the Bantams at right-back but has suffered with injuries during his loan move.

Hosannah is yet to feature this year, with his last appearance coming in mid-December due to a hamstring problem.

Mateusz Bogusz - UD Logrones

Bogusz was an unused substitute for Logrones as they played out a 1-1 draw with Albacete.

The 19-year-old midfielder has recorded one goal and one assist since his move to Spain, where he has made 16 league appearances this season.

Logrones sit 16th in the Segunda Division.

Kun Temenuzhkov - Real Union

Temenuzhkov was a late substitute - stepping off the bench in the 83rd minute - for Real Union in a 0-0 draw with Arenas Club.

The 21-year-old has scored three goals in 14 appearances in the third tier in Spain this season.

Union sit third in Group 2 and are just two points off top spot with a game in hand.

Rafa Mujica - Las Palmas

Mujica completed 64 minutes of Las Palmas' 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano.

The 22-year-old was selected as a striker and has scored one goal in nine games in total in La Liga 2 this term.

Mujica spent the first half of the campaign with Real Oviedo.

Las Palmas are currently 13th in the Segunda Division.
