Zim players based abroad round-up

Knowledge Musona scored his debut goal for Lokeren in a 2-1 victory over Antwerp on Saturday night.

The forward was named in the first XI after missing the previous two rounds due to a chickenpox illness. He had a great time on the pitch on his return and was undoubtedly the most visible Lokeren player up front. He opened the scoring in the 32nd minute with a superb strike into the far post. He almost got his brace ten minutes later, but the effort could not find the target.

The victory ended a five-match losing streak for Musona’s new team.

Club Brugge midfielder Marvelous Nakamba did not feature in a derby match against Cercle Brugge on Sunday.

The 25-year-old is serving a red card suspension from the previous round.

UK-based Macauley Bonne starred for the entire ninety minutes in Leyton Orient’s 1-1 draw against Hartlepool while Nottingham Forest full-back Tendayi Darikwa was not part of the squad that did duty in a 2-1 win against Brentford despite the defender serving his three-match ban.

Bradford City left-back Adam Chicksen played a full match in 1-0 defeat to Fleetwood. Midfielder Andy Rinomhota also started in Reading’s first XI for the goalless draw against Sheffield Wednesday.
