thumbnail Hello,

David Edgar and Marcus Haber both tallied for their respective English clubs over the weekend, but both were ultimately on the losing end. Goal.com recaps that and more.

Edgar scores but Burnley still loses

David Edgar doesn't score often. In fact, his goal for Burnley at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday was his first of the season.

The big defender notched a 55th-minute strike to open the scoring in the English second tier contest, but despite the rarity of the occasion, Bolton managed to rally and win the match 2-1.

The loss kept Burnley just outside of the playoff picture, as the club sits on 43 points and is in ninth place after 31 games.

Haber notches consolation goal

Down a level in League One, Marcus Haber managed to pull Stevenage back to within a goal of Carlisle United, but ultimately Carlisle prevailed 2-1.

Haber's 22nd-minute goal was his sixth of the campaign so far.

Jackson gets game action in Norwich draw

Norwich City continued to tread water with its third consecutive draw in the Premier League, this time a scoreless affair versus Fulham.

Simeon Jackson was called upon in the second half by the Canaries, coming on in the 76th minute to try to help bolster the stagnant Norwich offence. In the end, neither side could score, and the result sees Norwich and Fulham remain deadlocked on points.

Hainault unused in Ross County win

André Hainault has yet to take the field for his new club Ross County of Scotland's Premier League, and he watched from the bench as his team throttle host Dundee 3-0 over the weekend.

The win allowed Ross County to jump two spots to ninth in the SPL.

PSV remains tops despite draw

PSV Eindhoven picked a great weekend to drop points, earning a 2-2 draw at Vitesse just a day before its closest pursuant -- Ajax -- also drew with an unfavoured side.

As a result, PSV holds on to its three-point cushion atop the Eredivisie with 12 games remaining.

Atiba Hutchinson played the full 90 for the Eindhoven side, picking up a yellow card for his efforts.

De Jong gets game-tying assist in Germany

Marcel de Jong was in the starting lineup for FC Augsburg in its match against Mainz 05 on Sunday, with the Canadian left back going the entire 90 minutes.

He justified his time on the pitch by setting up Augsburg's only goal, a 57th minute marker that levelled the game after de Jong's side had gone down 14 minutes earlier.

The match ended 1-1, a result that wasn't enough to lift Augsburg out of the Bundesliga's relegation zone.

Edwini-Bonsu plays 26 minutes

Striker Randy Edwini-Bonsu played nearly a half hour of Eintracht Braunschweig's 1-1 draw with Aalen on Friday, subbing in during the second half as his side looked to maintain its spot atop Germany's 2. Bundesliga.

The result allowed Braunschweig to remain in first place for another week.

Köln, Energie Cottbus battle to scoreless draw

Kevin McKenna played all 90 minutes of a 0-0 draw between FC Köln and Energie Cottbus on Saturday.

The draw sees the two teams remain separated by just a single point, with Energie Cottbus in fourth place on 31 points, while Köln's 30 points are only good enough for seventh in an extremely tight 2. Bundesliga.

De Guzman a full participant in crucial Jahn Regensburg win

Julian de Guzman just joined SSV Jahn Regensburg a couple of weeks ago, but the Canadian midfielder is already putting in 90 minute shifts as the club looks to stave off relegation from the German second tier.

De Guzman played the full 90 in Saturday's match, a huge 2-0 win at VfL Bochum that brings Jahn Regensburg three points closer to safety.

The club is still dead last in the 2. Bundesliga, but it now sits just two points from safety.

Borjan gets clean sheet for Sivasspor

Milan Borjan and Sivassor have had a good run of form recently in the Turkish Super Lig, and it continued over the weekend as the club earned a 2-0 win over Trabzonspor.

Borjan backstopped the shut out, grabbing a clean sheet and helping his side into eighth place in the league.
