Karl Darlow kept another clean sheet for Nottingham Forest as they demolished Reading at the City Ground on Saturday.
A brace from Michail Antonio followed by goals from Matty Fryatt and Britt Assombalonga sealed a 4-0 win for Stuart Pearce's side as the Championship's leading scorers headed for the division's summit.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper had a quiet afternoon as the Royals failed to pose much of a threat to the Forest backline, from which fellow United loanee Jamaal Lascelles was missing again through injury.
Darlow did, however, prevent Nick Blackburn from grabbing a consolation late on, saving at the forward's feet to earn his third shutout of the season so far.
Adam Campbell, meanwhile, made a late substitute appearance for Fleetwood Town in their goalless draw at home to Chesterfield in League One.
The young forward, who joined the Cod Army on a month's loan a fortnight ago, came on as an 80th-minute substitute for David Ball but couldn't plunder a winner for his new team.
In France, Guingamp's Sylvain Marveaux played the full 90 minutes of their 1-0 defeat to Marseille in Ligue 1.
The winger, who arrived at the Stade de Roudourou on a season-long loan last month, was powerless to prevent Andre-Pierre Gignac's winner, which gave former Argentina boss Marcelo Bielsa his first win in charge of Les Phoceens.
