Two Fulham starlets made their debuts this weekend as Kerim Frei and Matthew Briggs began life in their new short-term homes.
Teenage winger Frei made an 83rd minute cameo for Cardiff City and helped his new club go top of the table with a convincing 4-0 triumph over managerless Burnley.
Left-back Briggs played all 90 minutes for Bristol City in Saturday evening’s televised Championship match but could not prevent the Robins suffering a 2-1 reverse against visiting Hull City.
There was better news for towering centre-half Dan Burn, whose Yeovil Town made it three League One wins in a row, and recorded a clean sheet in a single-goal victory at Crewe Alexandra.But Philippines international goalkeeper Neil Etheridge was on the wrong end of a one-goal scoreline as his League Two Bristol Rovers side slipped to defeat at Accrington Stanley.
In the Blue Square Bet Premier, shot-stopper Marcus Bettinelli recorded a shutout as Dartford inflicted a 2-0 loss on Mansfield Town, while Richard Peniket was used as a 72nd minute substitute for Kidderminster Harriers, who were held to a 1-1 draw by Gateshead.
A third young Whites keeper, Jesse Joronen, was in action as his loan side Maidenhead United came from behind to down Welling United 2-1 in Blue Square Bet South.
