David Button earned the praise of Plymouth manager Peter Reid after Saturday's 1-1 draw against Carlisle in League One.

The goalkeeper produced a stunning save to turn away former Leeds and Republic of Ireland full-back Ian Harte's free-kick before his side found a last-minute equaliser at Home Park.

Fellow loanee Dean Parrett made his debut for the Pilgrims, entering the action at half-time.

"It was a great save," said manager Peter Reid. "I know Harte from when I had him at Leeds and when he stepped up, I feared the worse.

"It was a terrific save because it had plenty of dip on it. The kid looks as though he's got a chance of being a top keeper."

Staying with our goalkeepers out on loan, Oscar Jansson kept a clean sheet as Northampton Town drew 0-0 against Accrington Stanley in League Two.

In the Championship, Andros Townsend and Ryan Mason enjoyed promising debuts for Ipswich Town and Doncaster respectively.

However, the pair suffered differing emotions as their teams drew 1-1.

Andros created the best chance of the first half for Jon Stead after a typical dart down the right at Portman Road before testing Burnley keeper Brian Jensen after a run and shot on target.

He eventually departed after 72 minutes and saw his side take a 1-0 lead a minute from time - only for Burnley to equalise in injury time.

Ryan started in midfield for Doncaster against Bristol City and soon had England's World Cup keeper David James scrambling for a 25-yarder that curled inches wide.

He left the action with five minutes remaining and his side trailing 1-0 - this time though, unlike Andros, he was left celebrating a last-minute goal as Billy Sharp levelled from the penalty spot.

John Bostock went from high to low with Hull in the Championship. After scoring a cracker to help beat Swansea on his debut last week, the midfielder found himself on the end of a 4-0 defeat at Millwall. He played the full 90 minutes.
