The boy's (and the Bhoys) doing good

It's grim up north? Not a bit of it. Fraser Forster kept another clean sheet on Sunday as Celtic cantered to a 5-0 victory at Hibs, their 18th straight league win. With Rangers having been deducted 10 points for entering administration, the Bhoys are a whopping 17 points clear at the top of the table. Who says the Scottish Premier League is uncompetitive?

Another Toon loanee enjoying a five-goal romp at the weekend was James Tavernier, who played at right back as the MK Dons embarrassed Oldham. (Alan Smith has an injury and didn't feature.)

Rather less happy, however, was Haris Vuckic's Saturday afternoon. Inexpicably dropped following his man-of-the-match-winning display against Peterborough, the Slovenian was given more than half an hour from the bench but couldn't prevent Cardiff from slumping to a 3-0 defeat at Ipswich, former Magpie and Bluebird Agent Chopra on the scoresheet.
