McKenna on goal scoring streak

FC Köln continued its surge in the Bundesliga with a second straight league victory, this one a 3-1 result over VfL Bochum.

Impressively, Kevin McKenna has scored in both of those victories, which is a rarity for a central defender. Perhaps even more crucial to Köln's success is that both of his goals were game-winners, with McKenna proving clutch to his club side when needed.

Köln is now 10th in Germany's second division.

Occean comes off the bench in Eintracht draw

Olivier Occean started on the sidelines but played the final 26 minutes as his side Eintracht Frankfurt battled to a 1-1 draw at Schalke 04 in Bundesliga action over the weekend.

Occean has been coming off the bench in recent games after starting the season as Eintracht's number one striker. With the Frankfurt club struggling of late, the Canadian has seen his playing time diminish.

De Jong plays more advanced roles for Augsburg

Normally a left back, Marcel de Jong logged 85 minutes at left midfield for FC Augsburg, which held Borussia Mönchengladbach to a 1-1 scoreline on Sunday.

Augsburg will likely continue to mix things up as it tries to climb out of the Bundesliga basement. The club has just seven points from its first 13 matches.

PSV grounded in Eredivisie

After dropping its midweek Europa League match, PSV Eindhoven also fell 2-1 in an Eredivisie contest versus Vitesse on Sunday, giving the previously high-flying club two successive losses for the first time in a long while.

Atiba Hutchinson featured in both games, and most recently played 90 minutes in Sunday's loss, PSV's first in the league since September.

The Eindhoven still sits atop the Eredivisie standings, although its lead has been cut to two points in the very competitive Netherlands-based circuit.

Jackson gets cameo in Norwich draw

Simeon Jackson was a last-ditch substitute for Norwich City on Saturday, coming into the match versus host side Everton in the 89th minute. Norwich was losing 1-0 at the time of Jackson's entrance, and the Canaries found a dramatic 90th minute equalizer, albeit not through the Canadian striker.

Hoilett a late sub in QPR collapse

Premier League bottom feeders Queens Park Rangers put a scare in league-leading Manchester United when the cellar dwelling side took a 1-0 lead at the 52 minute mark and looked positive through the first hour of play.

The Red Devils showed their superior quality with a three-goal outburst in a seven minute span, sinking QPR's giant-slaying hopes and handing the lowly club yet another loss.

Junior Hoilett was a 73rd minute substitue for QPR, coming into the match after the Man United onslaught. The 22-year-old couldn't kick start a comeback, however.

De Guzman starts for Swansea in scoreless affair

Jonathan de Guzman was in his usual starting spot in central midfield for Swansea City when the Welsh-based club hosted Liverpool on Sunday.

The two sides fought to a 0-0 draw, with de Guzman exiting the match with six minutes remaining as the home side looked for a go-ahead goal.

Edgar goes 90 in Burnley win

Borjan backstops Sivasspor victory

Goalkeeper Milan Borjan allowed two late goals but hung on for a 4-2 victory as his team Sivasspor defeated Kayserispor in Turkish top tier action on Sunday.

Sivasspor jumped out the an early 4-0 lead and cruised the rest of the way, perhaps allowing its opponent a bit of flase hope with the pair of late strikes.
