Adam Smith would have had mixed feelings after a meeting with former Spurs team-mate Cian Hughton in League Two on Saturday.

The pair - both Academy trainees, but two years apart - came up against each other as Adam returned to Torquay's starting line-up against Cian's Lincoln City at Plainmoor.

Adam helped set-up Nicky Wroe's opener for Torquay with a crunching tackle to win possession but they were 3-1 down by the time Chris Zebroski pulled back a goal for the final 3-2 scoreline - with Cian driving home from close to claim the Imps' second.

Staying in League Two, David Button could do little as Shrewsbury fell to a 2-0 defeat at Aldershot.

In League One, Steven Caulker turned in another 90 minutes for Yeovil but it was a day to forget against local rivals Bristol Rovers, who scored all three of their goals in the first half of a 3-0 win. Jon Obika's Millwall travel to Leeds on Monday night.

In the Championship, Adel Taarabt was heavily involved in the action again as QPR came from 1-0 down to draw 1-1 against Swansea. Adel had a goal disallowed at 0-0 and then took the corner that led to Rangers' equaliser via Antonio German.

It was a good weekend for our more senior players out on loan.

Jamie O'Hara curled home a free-kick from the edge of the box as Portsmouth completed a late turn around against Hull. Only two minutes remained when Jamie levelled the score at 2-2 and he was involved again in the move that led to Kanu's injury time winner.

Alan Hutton played 90 minutes as Sunderland beat Birmingham City 3-1 in the Premier League.

In the Scottish Premier League, Robbie Keane scored again as Celtic beat St Johnstone 3-0 at Celtic Park.
