It was a rather miserable weekend for Norwich City's loanees, with Steven Naismith seeing a penalty saved in the Scottish Premiership.

Hearts remain top but the Scotland international saw his spot-kick saved during first half injury-time as Livingston held out for a 0-0 draw at Tynecastle – extending their unbeaten start under former Canaries player and coach Gary Holt to four matches.

Back in England, Yanic Wildschut came on in the 87th minute as Bolton held out for a 0-0 draw at struggling Ipswich, despite being reduced to 10 men midway through the first half.

Left-back James Husband missed Fleetwood's 1-0 defeat to Southend in League One due to a stomach bug which was affecting Joey Barton's squad. Diallang Jaiyesimi was brought off the 56th minute of Yeovil's 3-0 home defeat to Swindon in League Two, coming off when the score was still 0-0, but Tristan Abrahams was not involved in Exeter's 3-1 home win over Cheltenham.

Over in Holland, midfielder Savvas Mourgos came off in the 72nd minute as Dordrecht lost 2-1 at MVV Maastricht, to stay bottom of the second tier with one point from six games.
