Danel Sinani recorded his second league goal of the season for Waasland-Beveren as his strike helped them beat KV Oostende 2-0 in the Jupiler League.

Sinani has featured regularly for the Belgian top-flight side since arriving on loan from Norwich City earlier this season and seems to be hitting his stride for the Wolves.

The Luxembourg international swept home after leading a fine counter-attack in the 61st minute to secure Waasland-Beveren's first home win of the campaign. The Belgian side haven't recorded a win at the Freethiel Stadium from 11 months. 

Sinani is playing regularly for Arnauld Mercier's men, predominantly as a number ten although he has been deployed as a striker and a right-winger. 

The same can't be said for Melvin Sitti, however. The French midfielder is yet to make a matchday squad for the Belgian side. 

Carlton Morris kickstarted the fightback for Russell Martin's MK Dons on Tuesday, netting in the second half to reduce the deficit to 2-1 against Shrewsbury Town. The game ended 2-2 at Stadium MK, with City legend Martin praising his influence after a frustrating few weeks which has seen him confined to the bench.

"It means so much to Carlton to be here," Martin told the MK Citizen. "He's desperate for it to work and he's a victim of trying too hard and feeling the burden of things, results. I've told him to relax because we know what he can do.

Former City striker Cameron Jerome netted the equaliser, with Andrew Surman also starting.
