Conor Bradley continued his brilliant form for Bolton Wanderers with another goal and assist on Saturday afternoon.

The Northern Ireland international drew his team level in their eventual 3-1 victory over Charlton Athletic with a finish at the back post after nine minutes, before setting up Kieran Lee.

It was the full-back's third goal and third assist for the League One outfit on his 10th appearance, having completed a loan switch from Liverpool at the start of the season.

"When I signed, that's what the gaffer wanted me to do," Bradley said of his goalscoring output. "He told me I can get loads of goals playing wing-back because he wants me to get in the box and hopefully try to take some chances.

"Thankfully I'm doing that at the minute and hopefully it continues."

Over in Germany, Sepp van den Berg made his Bundesliga debut for Schalke 04 on Saturday.

The defender, who signed a new long-term contract with the Reds before temporarily departing, started at centre-back and played all of his new side's 1-1 draw away at VfB Stuttgart.

Fellow Liverpool centre-half Rhys Williams played more than an hour of Blackpool's 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town in the Championship a day later.

Meanwhile, there were clean sheets for goalkeepers Marcelo Pitaluga and Vitezslav Jaros.

Pitaluga's Macclesfield FC won their Emirates FA Cup first-qualifying-round tie against West Didsbury & Chorlton 1-0, with Jaros and Stockport County defeating AFC Wimbledon by the same scoreline in League Two.

Leighton Clarkson made his sixth appearance for Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen, playing the first 67 minutes of their 1-1 draw away at Ross County.

Billy Koumetio featured in the first half of Austria Vienna's 2-2 result against SC Austria Lustenau, while Anderson Arroyo played at right-back for Alaves as they drew 1-1 in their La Liga 2 fixture with Las Palmas.

James Balagizi played all but the final few moments of Crawley Town's 2-2 draw at Salford City, though there was defeat for Tyler Morton and Blackburn Rovers when Bristol City visited Ewood Park.

LFC Women goalkeeper Charlotte Clarke made a series of impressive saves for West Bromwich Albion Women in their goalless draw with Fylde in the Women's National League Premier Division on Sunday.
