Luton Town moved to three points from safety following Saturday’s road win over Swansea City. Cameron Carter-Vickers excelled for the second-straight week in Nathan Jones’ squad, helping them to a 1-0 victory.
Carter-Vickers won his only two duels in the match, while completing 82% of his passes. The Tottenham loanee also made five clearances and one recovery in Luton’s back four, while James Collins’ second-half finish was all the team needed to pick up an important three points. Carter-Vickers has made 10 league appearances for Luton Town since joining in January and should play a vital role for the club in their fight against relegation.
Josh Sargent registered his fourth league goal as Werder Bremen fought off relegation fears for one more week. Bremen rolled to a 6-1 league win over Cologne and will next face Heidenheim in the Bundesliga promotion/relegation playoffs. Sargent chipped Timo Horn in the 68th minute for the final goal of the match, adding to his season total.
Antonee Robinson retained his starting spot with Wigan Athletic, helping them to a 2-0 league win over Blackburn Rovers on Saturday. The left back won seven of his nine duels in the match, also winning two tackles and making a pair of recoveries. Wigan’s unbeaten run extended to eight matches in league play with the club moving further away from the relegation zone.
Elsewhere, Malik Tillman scored twice for Bayern Munich II helping them move atop the 3. Liga table. Christian Pulisic got the start for Chelsea and helped them to a 1-0 FA Cup win over Leicester City. Pellegrino Matarazzo and Stuttgart clinched their return to the Bundesliga while Jesse Marsch and Red Bull Salzburg won the Austrian Bundesliga title with two matches to spare.
