Sky Blues defender, Declan Drysdale was the hero as he scored late to score the winner for Cambridge this past weekend.

The 20 year-old started the game after being recalled into the starting eleven and he made his mark when the game was firmly poised at 0-0.

With only 11 minutes left on the clock, Drysdale went up for a set-piece and after fending off his marker, Dec headed home to put Cambridge 1-0 up away at Newport County.

The goal proved to be enough to secure three points and also sent the U's to the top of League Two with only four games remaining.

Elsewhere in League Two, Marcel Hilssner and Oldham Athletic were on the wrong end a seven goal thriller against Morecambe.

Hilssner came off of the bench in the 66th minutes against the Shrimps, but despite the Latics clawing one back with Marcel on the pitch, they ultimately fell short as they lost 4-3.

Finally, in the Scottish Premiership, Brandon Mason returned to action with St Mirren for the first time since January, as he came off of the bench in the 75th minute against Inverness.

And Brandon made an immediate impact, as with the scores level, it was Mason's ball back across goal which was put in by Marcus Fraser, to book St Mirren's place into the next round of the Scottish Cup, as they came away with a 2-1 win.
