Shaq Coulthirst grabbed the Tottenham loanee headlines this weekend with an early and crucial strike in Southend United's 1-0 win at home to Shrewsbury Town.
The 20-year-old also tested the visitors' keeper with two headers and he wasn't the only Spur involved in a tight win in League Two. Jordan Archer kept a clean sheet as Northampton beat Morecambe away by a single goal.
Scotland Under-21 keeper Archer had to stay on his toes to the very end, tipping over Alan Goddall's late effort to make sure the Cobblers picked up the three points.
In England's second tier, Alex Pritchard played 74 minutes in Brentford's 2-0 home win over Leeds United and Grant Ward continued his recovery from injury with a place on the bench in Birmingham's 2-1 home defeat to Fulham. The tall centre-back has recently returned from a groin injury.
Ryan Fredericks was on the bench as Middlesbrough played out a goalless at Cardiff, as was Tom Carroll in Swansea's stalemate at Sunderland. Kenny McEvoy also missed out on any game time in Peterborough's single goal win against Fleetwood Town in League One.
Lewis Holtby set up Hamburg's equaliser against Eintracht Frankfurt. The midfielder was withdrawn with four minutes left to play, time for Frankfurt to grab a winner. Grant Ward was a late substitute for Chicago Fire in the MLS as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat at Houston Dynamo.
Tomas Gomelt was not selected in Bari's match day squad as they drew 1-1 with Lanciano.
