Mehdi Abeid continued his recent good form in the Greek Super League as he hit a brace for Panathinaikos on Sunday.
The midfielder got both goals in a 2-1 home win over Xanthi and was also booked. He also scored in a 4-0 success at Kalloni earlier in the month.
Dan Gosling completed another 90 minutes for Blackpool on Saturday but the Tangerines lost 2-1 to Championship leaders Burnley.
Conor Newton started for St. Mirren but, after picking up a yellow card and with his side two goals down, he came off in the 61st minute as the Buddies eventually went down 3-0 at Motherwell.
In League Two, meanwhile, Michael Richardson was an unused substitute as Accrington beat Mansfield 3-2 while Shane Ferguson played no part in Birmingham's Championship meeting with Nottingham Forest.
On Friday, Romain Amalfitano had played the whole match as Dijon lost 3-1 to Chateauroux.
