Ikeme, who was in goal for the Super Eagles during the international break, has appeared three times for Wolves this season.

Godfrey Oboabona made a 90 minute appearance for Rizespor in their Turkish league encounter against Besiktas. But a 63rd minute Ricardo Quaresma condemned Rizespor to a 1-0 defeat.
Also in Turkey, Raheem Lawal was in the starting 11 for Eskisehirspor in their 1-0 away loss to Akhisar Belediye. Lawal was substituted for Alpaslan Ozturk in the 61st minute.
