Loans: United duo score

Two of Manchester United's overseas loanees found the net this weekend.

Bebe scored a screamer for Pacos de Ferreira while Marnick Vermijl continues to be a goal threat for NEC Nijmegen despite playing at right-back.

Portuguese winger Bebe's rocket earned his side a 1-1 away draw at Sporting Braga in the Primeira Liga when Eduardo was only able to help his right-footed volley from outside the box into the corner of the net.

Belgian defender Vermijl grabbed the second goal, his third in his last six matches, in a vital 3-1 win against ADO Den Haag that takes NEC off the bottom of the Eredivisie at their opponents' expense.

In the Championship, things went less well for the Reds in action. Ryan Tunnicliffe was unable to prevent Ipswich Town losing 1-0 at Millwall while Nick Powell's Wigan Athletic were beaten 3-0 by Doncaster Rovers. Derby County saw off Brighton 1-0 but Michael Keane was an unused substitute for the Rams.

Tom Lawrence's Carlisle United slipped to a 4-2 loss even if the Welshman performed well and forced a couple of saves out of Colchester's Sam Walker after neat runs. It was also his free-kick that was spilled by Walker to allow Max Ehmer to score in injury time.

Anderson's loan move to Fiorentina was not finalised in time for him to feature in the 3-0 away win at Catania but Angelo Henriquez came on for the final 10 minutes of Real Zaragoza's goalless draw with Hercules.
