James Tavernier

James Tavernier triumphed in the battle of the Newcastle United loanees at the Matchroom Stadium, helping Carlisle United win 2-1 against Leyton Orient.

Richardson was an unused substitute for The O's, who have now lost all five of their opening games of the season, but Tavernier played the full 90 minutes.

Orient took the lead through Jimmy Smith, but Lee Miller equalised on 69 minutes on his debut, after signing from Middlesbrough last week.

And three minutes from time, the Scottish striker won the game for the Cumbrians, who have won three out of their four fixtures since Tavernier's arrival.

Another side in form at the moment is Brighton and Hove Albion, and Kazenga LuaLua appeared as an injury time substitute as the Seagulls won 2-0 at home to Peterborough.

They have won six of their seven games in the league and cup - drawing the other - and sit on top of the Championship.

Meanwhile, the Spanish Segunda division got underway on Saturday following a players' strike which had delayed the start of the campaign, and Deportivo La Coruna began with a 1-0 win over Recreativo.

But in the first competitive game of his season-long loan spell, Xisco was an unused substitute.
