Forgotten Socceroo Tom Rogic backed up his goal on Monday with a 7/10 display for West Bromwich Albion in a 3-0 win over Rotherham United in the English Championship on Saturday.
Rogic netted his maiden West Brom goal on Monday against Sunderland and earned a start in Saturday’s victory.
The Australian started and played 74 minutes, with the Birmingham Mail rating him 7/10. They wrote: “There were moments of class from Rogic, who was rewarded with a start after Monday.
“His pass for Wallace’s goal was a joy to watch. Faded a little in the second half but you’d hope that he’ll come on for this extended run-out.”
Harry Souttar put in a full shift and earned an 8/10 rating as Stoke City won 2-1 at Bristol City.
Stoke Sentinel wrote: “A bit over-exuberant at times in the opening moments but it was his hopeful long ball in stoppage time of the first half that led to the equaliser. Carried his form over from the World Cup to make a number of last stitch tackles to preserve the 2-1 lead for his side. A lead they couldn’t have held on to without their rock at the back.”
Riley McGree started and played 72 minutes, receiving a 5/10 rating in Middlesbrough’s 3-1 away loss to promotion hopefuls Burnley.
Teesside Live wrote: “Tried to influence matters and played his part in Boro’s better attacks late in the first half, but ultimately squandered one solid counter opportunity with the wrong pass, while the ball didn’t stick enough.”
Cameron Devlin started but was pulled off after 79 minutes in an apparet man of the match display in Hearts’ 3-1 win over Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.
Nathaniel Atkinson was an unused sub, while Kye Rowles was absent due to suspension.
The Scotsman rated Devlin 6/10 and wrote: “The Australian’s ears may be ringing for a while after full-time. He was on the end of plenty of Neilson shouts to get out to a Kilmarnock player or to be in a certain position, sometimes the wrong side of his man.
“Was warned by Willie Collum for persistent fouling. Having Snodgrass beside him in the middle allowed him freedom to get forward. Was guilty of giving the ball away cheaply in the second half as Hearts struggled before being hooked. Some raised eyebrows when he was announced as man of the match.”
Aaron Mooy was back in action for Celtic but only played as a 90th minute substitute in their 1-0 win at Aberdeen.
