Bongani Khumalo helped Reading to a win at Sven Goran Eriksson's highly-fancied Leicester City in the Championship on Saturday.
Our South African international defender played the full 90 minutes as the Royals - beaten by Swansea in last season's play-off final - toppled the Foxes 2-0 at the King Power Stadium.
Nathan Byrne also enjoyed a clean sheet in a 90-minute stint as Bournemouth beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 in League One.
Jon Obika played his part in Yeovil's 3-1 win against Oldham but limped out of the action in the 65th minute with an ankle injury.
Elsewhere, Kyle Naughton and Oscar Jansson were unused substitutes at Norwich and Bradford respectively.
