Bradden Inman returned to Crewe Alexandra's starting line-up on Saturday and helped his side pick up a point at Leyton Orient.
The on-loan midfielder had been rested for the home defeat to Stevenage seven days earlier but was back in Steve Davis' starting XI against the O's.
Lee Cook gave the hosts a 26th minute lead but the Alex were quickly back on level terms through Byron Moore, and Crewe were much improved in the second half. Inman had a shot blocked after the break and played the whole game.
In League Two, Curtis Good was an unused substitute as Bradford suffered a hangover from their Capital One Cup heroics against Aston Villa.
The Bantams lost 2-1 at home to Oxford United, with Good missing out despite playing a big part in their semi-final first leg success during the week.
Workington were beaten 3-0 at Histon in the Blue Square Bet North, with Jonathan Mitchell starting in goal and JJ Hooper on the bench.
