Mehdi Abeid scored his fifth goal of the season as Panathinaikos beat Platanias on Saturday.

The midfielder grabbed the only goal of the game in his 17th appearance of the campaign as his impressive form in Greece continues.

He also won man of the match, while James Tavernier scooped the award for Rotherham as they drew 2-2 with Crawley.

The defender played the whole game while Vuckic was a 53rd minute substitute and had a hand in the Millers' late equaliser.

Shane Ferguson started in Birmingham's FA Cup tie against Swansea but was substituted in the 74th minute of a 2-1 defeat.

Adam Campbell started St. Mirren's 0-0 draw with Partick Thistle before being replaced by Conor Newton in the 68th minute.

On Thursday, Romain Amalfitano played the first 81 minutes as Dijon lost to Auxerre in the French Cup.
