Nathan Byrne made quite an impact on his league debut for Crawley Town against Carlisle.

Loan watch

The young full-back stepped straight into the Crawley team to make his full debut in a narrow Capital One Cup loss against Swansea last week.

He held onto his place for the League One clash at Carlisle on Saturday - just days after we'd beaten the Cumbrians in the Capital One Cup - and responded with a superb goal to spark his side's 2-0 win.

Picking the ball up on halfway, Nathan drove forward and suddenly found himself in the Carlisle box, where he coolly slotted the ball home with the outside of his right foot.

Staying in League One, Ryan Fredericks came on in the 56th minute as Brentford grabbed a last-minute equaliser at table-topping Tranmere. John Bostock wasn't involved in Swindon's 1-0 win at Shrewsbury.

Jordan Archer made his league debut as Wycombe suffered a 3-0 loss against Dagenham & Redbridge in League Two.

Danny Rose played another full shift as Sunderland beat Wigan 1-0 in the Premier League.

In the Championship, Massimo Luongo came on at half-time as Ipswich picked up a point at Barnsley.

In Greece, Bongani Khumalo played 90 minutes as PAOK beat Aris 4-1 but it wasn't such good news for David Bentley in Russia, as FC Rostov were beaten 4-0 by Rubin Kazan. However, David got another 90 minutes under his belt.

Simon Dawkins was missing with an ankle injury as our partner club San Jose Earthquakes secured a late 3-3 draw against FC Dallas in the MLS. Earthquakes still lead the race for the prestigious Supporters' Shield, awarded to the team with the best regular-season record in the MLS.
