Martin Boyle, Ryan Williams, Anthony Carter and Callum Elder scored goals around Europe, with the latter producing a Man of the Match display and Tom Rogic got an assist in a 5/10 performance.

Martin Boyle scored as Hibernian eased into the Scottish FA Cup fourth round with a 3-1 win at Queen of the South on Monday.

Boyle scored Hibs' third goal in the 70th minute, chipping the goalkeeper, before being replaced on 78 minutes.

Edinburgh Live gave Boyle an 8/10 rating and wrote: "Biggest threat in the first half, took his goal brilliantly."

Jackson Irvine started and played 75 minutes for Hibs. Irvine earned a 7/10 from Edinburgh Live, who wrote: "Went close to scoring in the second, good energy and got forward well."

Tom Rogic started and got an assist in Celtic's comfortable 3-0 FA Cup win over Falkirk.

Rogic started and played 72 minutes, providing the pass for James Forrest's 56th minute opening goal.

The Socceroo received the ball on the edge of the box and laid off on his left, with Forrest cutting back and firing in a deflected shot.

Rogic only received a 5/10 rating from Glasgow Live who wrote: "Some slick passing and seen plenty of the ball, but couldn't make the difference in the final third."

Harry Souttar put in a full shift as Stoke City lost 2-1 at home to Millwall in the English Championship on Monday.

The Stoke Sentinel gave Souttar a 7/10 rating for Monday's display and wrote: "Tasked with bringing the ball out and kept defence reasonably sound in open play."

Souttar also played a full game in Good Friday's 2-0 win at Bristol City.

Massimo Luongo was absent for Sheffield Wednesday's 5-0 win over Cardiff City which boosts their survival hopes, having also missed their Good Friday game injured.

Riley McGree was an unused sub for Birmingham City in their 1-0 home win over Swansea on Friday.

Callum Elder scored a goal and got an assist for another in Hull City's 3-0 home win over Northampton Town in League One on Monday.

Elder opened the scoring on the half hour with a superb side-footed finish from outside the box.

He also got the pass for Gavin Whyte's 90th minute strike too, with an incisive through-ball into the box, allowing his teammate to round the keeper.

The full-back earned a 9/10 rating from the Hull Daily Mail, who wrote: "One of City’s most consistent performers this season, creator of so many for others, it was fitting his first goal for the club should be a stunner.

"Could have had three or four assists before setting up Whyte. Magnificent."

Kenny Dougall put in a full shift as Blackpool won 4-1 over Gillingham on Monday, while Cam Burgess also played the full 90 in Accrington Stanley's 2-1 win at Oxford United.

Ryan Edwards put in a full shift in Burton Albion's 2-1 victory over Swindon Town, while Ryan Williams played a full game as Portsmouth won 1-0 at Wigan Athletic.

Williams had scored in Portsmouth's 2-1 victory over Rochdale on Friday, netting in the fifth minute.

Anthony Carter scored for Academico Viseu in a come-from-behind 2-1 win away to Penafiel in the Portuguese Segunda Liga on Friday.

Carter, who played a full game, leveled the match up in the 60th minute with his fifth goal of the season.
