David Button produced another fine display for Shrewsbury against Burton Albion in League Two on Saturday.

David Button produced another fine display for Shrewsbury against Burton Albion in League Two on Saturday.

The goalkeeper, 20, made four fine saves to deny Greg Pearson twice, John McGrath and his former Spurs team-mate Jacques Maghoma as his side drew 1-1 at the Pirelli Stadium.

It should have been better for the Shrews after they took an early lead and then saw Burton reduced to 10 men in the first half, but in the end David helped preserve a point with a last-minute tip over from Maghoma's 20 yarder.

Adel Taarabt scored and was central to the action as QPR earned a 2-2 draw at Blackpool in the Championship.

The Morrocan international inspired Rangers' comeback at the start of the second half after they trailed 1-0 at half-time.

First of all he saw a shot hit both posts only to bounce to safety and another effort soon after was handled and he stepped up himself to dink home the penalty - pictured below. Blackpool took the lead again before a late QPR equaliser.

Jake Livermore's debut for Peterborough United was memorable for all the wrong reasons after two of his new team-mates were sent off in the first half against Derby County.

The midfielder played the full 90 minutes as Posh played with nine men for 45 minutes and, perhaps not surprisingly, fell to a 3-0 defeat at London Road.

Kyle Walker started for Sheffield United and played a full shift as the Blades beat Middlesbrough 1-0 to go sixth in the Championship.

In League One, Andros Townsend made his debut for MK Dons with half-hour off the bench in a 5-0 win at Hartlepool.

MK were 3-0 up when Andros entered the fray and the winger had time to help his new club to a record away win as he set up the fourth goal for Sam Baldock.

John Bostock played 87 minutes as Brentford beat Carlisle 3-1 at Griffin Park. The midfielder set up his side's second goal when his shot was saved by John Collin and Myles Weston converted the rebound.

Back in League Two, Adam Smith played 90 minutes as Torquay suffered a 1-0 defeat at Chesterfield.
