It was all about the FA Cup first round for most of Norwich City’s loan players at the weekend, with more action in the world’s oldest club competition still to come.
Carlton Morris returned to the starting line-up for Rotherham and helped the League One side bounce back from 1-0 down at half-time to win 3-1 away to non-league side Maidenhead, with the 23-year-old playing on the left wing and missing a series of chances to get his name on the scoresheet.
Left-back James Husband played the full 90 minutes as Blackpool won 4-1 at home against Morecambe to book their place in the second round.
Despite scoring the winner in the EFL Trophy against Wolves U21s in midweek, young defender Rocky Bushiri was not involved, ahead of joining up with Belgium U21s during the international break.
Sean Raggett could be in FA Cup action this evening, a competition he has good memories of having helped Lincoln reach the quarter-finals in 2017. Pompey are away to non-league Harrogate Town, in a match being screened by BT Sport.
Diallang Jaiyesimi played the full 90 minutes as Swindon drew 1-1 at Cheltenham to set up a home replay against their League two promotion rivals.
Louis Thompson was an unused substitute as Shrewsbury were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Bradford, teeing up a replay, as was striker Mason Bloomfield as Crawley won 4-1 at home against Scunthorpe.
There was no National League game for Anthony Spyrou and Chesterfield or goalkeeper Aston Oxborough with Wealdstone, whose National League South clash with Eastbourne Borough was postponed because of floodlight problems.
Irish winger Simon Power continues not to be involved for Scottish Premiership side Ross County and Josh Coley also didn't feature for Dunfermline in the Scottish Championship, with both youngsters getting little game time so far.
Over in Holland, midfielder Charlie Gilmour missed a second game with a knee injury, as Telstar drew 1-1 away to PSV Eindhoven U21s on Friday.
And it's a similar story for Greek midfielder Savvas Mourgos, who has suffered another knee injury and missed his second successive game in the second tier, as Dordrecht lost 3-1 at Go Ahead Eagles.
