Mehdi Abeid set up a goal in another big win for Panathinaikos, while there was a start for Shane Ferguson

By Dan King - Newcastle United Digital Editor

There was no goal for Mehdi Abeid this weekend, but he played a key role in another Panathinaikos victory in the Green Super League.

The midfielder, who netted against Olympiakos last week, started against Aris on Saturday and set up Marcus Berg for his side's final goal in a 4-1 win. Abeid played for 82 minutes.

Back in England, Shane Ferguson was restored to the Birmingham City starting XI against Queens Park Rangers at St. Andrew's.

However, Harry Redknapp's side ran out 2-0 winners as Ferguson played for 73 minutes.

Injury kept Jonas Gutierrez out of Norwich's 1-1 draw against Stoke, while Romain Amalfitano was sidelined as Dijon drew 2-2 with Auxerre on Friday.

On Tuesday, James Tavernier completed 90 minutes and Vuckic 65 minutes as Rotherham drew 0-0 at Colchester in League One.
