A week after making his first senior appearance, Tottenham winger Kenneth McEvoy scored his first senior goal as Peterborough won a storming game 3-2 at home to MK Dons.
The fleet-footed Irish youth international cut in from the left flank and saw his 25-yard shot deflect over the keeper to put 'The Posh' ahead early, before injury caused his withdrawal at half time.
Grant Hall was also in the action as Birmingham beat Brighton one-nil at home. Hall's tackle on Craig Mackai-Smith, a former Tottenham trainee, led to a City counter-attack for the only goal of the game.
Alex Prichard and Jordan Archer
Alex Pritchard was unable to get into the game as Brentford lost by the same scoreline to early pace-setters Bournemouth, while Shaq Coulthirst started in Southend's 2-0 win over Stevenage at Roots Hall. The striker was withdrawn with nine minutes to go.
Jordan Archer was an unused sub again as Northampton drew 1-1 York City in League Two, although might hope for some game time as Matt Duke in the Northampton goal was responsible for York's strike.
Finally, in the MLS Grant Ward also started on the bench and came on with four minutes of normal time to play as his Chicago Fire side lost by a single goal to Montreal Impact. With the transfer window shutting in less than a fortnight, more loans deals will be expected in the next few weeks.
