Adam Armstrong opened his Barnsley account in sensational style, bagging the winner in their 2-1 Sky Bet Championship win at Preston North End on Saturday.
The 19-year-old replaced Ryan Kent just after the hour at Deepdale, with his side 1-0 up thanks to Sam Winnall's opener.
Aiden McGeady drew the hosts level two minutes after debutant Armstrong's introduction, and the on-loan Magpie had the final say just over ten minutes from time.
Latching on to a long pass forwards, Armstrong backheeled the ball round his marker, Alex Baptiste, and beat Anders Lindegaard with his first-time, left-footed curling effort to seal the three points for the Tykes.
The result means Barnsley are third in the table, with 12 points from their six games so far.
Another Newcastle loanee, Ivan Toney, was on target this weekend, scoring for Shrewsbury Town in their 2-1 defeat at Bury on Saturday.
Toney levelled the scores with a header after Danny Mayor's opener at Gigg Lane, but Mayor's second - which came in injury time - won it for the hosts.
Winger Florian Thauvin was on the scoresheet for Marseille as they were beaten 3-2 at Nice.
The 23-year-old played the full 90 minutes, netting after 14 minutes to cancel out Mario Balotelli's early opener as Les Phoceens slipped to defeat.
Also in France, Henri Saivet started Saint-Etienne's creditable 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain, picking up a booking ten minutes after the break.
Saivet was then replaced by Romain Hamouma with 18 minutes left, and his side earned a point at the death through Robert Beric after Lucas' earlier opener.
In Switzerland, Kevin Mbabu was an unused substitute in BSC Young Boys' 2-1 win over Luzern, while in Holland, Siem de Jong missed out on PSV Eindoven's 4-0 win over NEC Nijmegen and goalkeeper Tim Krul didn't feature in Ajax's 1-0 victory over Vitesse.
Emmanuel Riviere was part of the Osasuna side that were beaten 5-2 at the Bernabeu Stadium in La Liga. The Frenchman played the first hour before being replaced by Oroil Riera, who scored for Los Rojillos.
Back in England, full back Jamie Sterry got another 90 minutes under his belt as Coventry City earned a point at Millwall in League One.
Sterry picked up a yellow card at the Den as Marvin Sordell opened the scoring for Tony Mowbray's men, before Aiden O'Brien's second-half leveller.
Sammy Ameobi came off the bench just after the hour in Bolton's 1-1 draw with MK Dons at the Macron Stadium, but couldn't help his side find a winner after Ryan Colclough equalised following Mark Beevers' opener for the Trotters.
However, Haris Vuckic didn't make it off the bench as his Bradford City side were held to a 1-1 draw at Gillingham.
And in League Two, Macaulay Gillesphey played the full 90 minutes as Carlisle United rescued a late point against Leyton Orient to maintain their unbeaten league start to the season.
Danny Grainger netted an 87th-minute penalty for the Cumbrians at Brunton Park, with Gillesphey having established himself as one of manager Keith Curle's favoured centre halves at the start of this campaign.Alex Gilliead made his Luton Town debut, appearing as a late substitute in the Hatters' 2-1 defeat at home to Grimsby Town, but the 20-year-old couldn't help them rescue a draw after his 85th-minute introduction.

Forward Tom Heardman was also named as a substitute in Hartlepool United's 2-1 win at Stevenage, but he is still yet to make his Football League debut.
