Super Eagles stars Semi Ajayi and Kenneth Omeruo were on target for their respective clubs in the Championship and La Liga.

West Bromwich Albion returned to winning ways and moved to top of the Championship table following their 2-0 over against Luton Town.

The Baggies ended their seven-game winless run as they took the lead after Donervon Daniels scored an own goal in the 14th minute.

The 26-year-old scored in the 70th minute with a diving header to secure the win as Slaven Bilic's men move back to the top of the league.

Semi-Ajayi has now scored five goals this season and the Nigerian international is looking to break his goal-tally for the season after scoring eight for Rotherham last season.

"It would be nice to beat last season’s tally because that’s the most I’ve ever got. I’m on target at the moment, so hopefully I can keep scoring goals that help the team pick up three points every week. That would be nice," he told the club website.

“Before a game my main focus is a clean sheet but when I get chance to go forward of course I’m thinking about it. Most of the time throughout the 90 minutes my sole focus is on defending.”

Meanwhile, Omeruo also scored his first ever goal for Leganes in their impressive 2-1 win over Real Sociedad.

Alexander Isak put the away side ahead in the 20th minute as Omeruo equalized for the Cucumber Growers four minutes after the interval.

Oscar scored the winner in the 90th minute and put them three points above relegation with 18 points from 22 matches.
