Leicester City youngster Dewsbury-Hall, on loan at Blackpool for the 2019/20 season, has featured 10 times in all competitions since his January move to the Seasiders, scoring four goals from midfield.

The 21-year-old's 58th-minute strike from distance got the Tangerines back in the game at Bloomfield Road, after Morgan Ferrier and Jame Vaughan had given Tranmere a half-time lead, but it was not enough.

Dewsbury-Hall also played 90 minutes on Saturday as Blackpool drew 0-0 with local rivals Fleetwood Town, in what was Neil Critchley's first game in charge of the club. 

Josh Knight, meanwhile, came off the bench to help guide Peterborough United into the Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off places with a 2-0 victory over fellow promotion contenders Portsmouth on Saturday. 

The three points - secured thanks to goals from Dan Butler and Ivan Toney - lifts the Posh up into fourth position, above Pompey, Sunderland and Fleetwood on goal difference. 

Goalkeeper Daniel Iversen is also involved in the League 1 promotion race, and his Rotherham United side still sit second in the table, despite a 3-1 defeat at Rochdale at Spotland on Saturday.

Rotherham loanee Daniel Iversen recently signed a new five-and-a-half-year deal at Leicester City.

Ian Henderson's brace, plus a late strike by Matty Lund sealed the victory for Rochdale at Crown Oil Arena, while Jamie Lindsay got one back for the Millers late on. 

Filip Benkovic, on the other hand, came on in the first half of Bristol City’s 1-1 draw with Fulham at Ashton Gate in the Championship, replacing the injured Nathan Baker in the 23rd minute.

A point separates Lee Johnson's side from sixth-placed Preston North End in the Championship table with five games to play in England's second tier.

Forward Admiral Muskwe also came on as a substitute in Swindon Town’s 2-0 home defeat by Forest Green, as they dropped to second in League 2 on goal difference, with a game in hand on Crewe Alexandra. 

Also in the fourth tier, defender Mitchell Clark played the full game and kept a clean sheet for eight-placed Port Vale as the Valiants drew 0-0 with Cheltenham Town to keep their own play-off hopes alive.

In France, Islam Slimani came off the bench in AS Monaco’s 2-1 defeat away to Nice, while fellow loanee Adrien Silva was also named as a substitute, but did not feature in the Ligue 1 encounter.

Centre-back Filip Benković has scored one goal in his Bristol City appearances.

Robert Moreno Monaco side, as a result, drop down to ninth in the table, but are just one point behind fifth-placed Stade Reims after 28 matches.

Fousseni Diabaté was also in action in France's top division, starting Amiens’ 2-2 draw with Marseille and making his 23rd appearance for Les Licornes in the process. 

Elsewhere, ADO Den Haag suffered 4-0 defeat to AZ Alkmaar at the weekend with Leicester loanee George Thomas playing 90 minutes for Alan Pardew’s side, who are seven points adrift of safety in Holland.

Finally, midfielder Kamal Sowah also played a full game at the weekend, but was unable to prevent Oud-Heverlee Leuven losing the Belgian First Division B promotion play-off final first leg 1-0 to Beerschot. 

OHL will now need to overturn the aggregate scoreline if they are to secure their place in Belgium's Jupiler Pro League when Beerschot visit King Power at Den Dreef Stadium on Saturday (7:30pm GMT kick-off).
