French winger Romain Amalfitano made it two goals in two games as he struck against Clermont

By Dan King - Newcastle United Digital Editor

Having opened his account for the season against Nimes seven days earlier, Romain Amalfitano made it two goals in two games on Friday.

The 24-year-old winger scored the only goal in a 1-0 win for Dijon over Clermont which maintained his side's faint promotion hopes in Ligue 2.

On Saturday, James Tavernier played the whole game while Haris Vuckic appeared as a 70th minute substitute for Rotherham as they won 2-1 at Swindon.

Both players will now hope to help the Millers win the League One play-offs.

Meanwhile Conor Newton completed another 90 minutes for St. Mirren as they beat Ross County 1-0 but Adam Campbell was again an unused substitute.

Shane Ferguson was not involved as Birmingham staged a great escape to avoid relegation from the Championship with a 2-2 draw at Bolton while Jonas Gutierrez played no part in Norwich's 0-0 draw with Chelsea.

And injury kept Mehdi Abeid and Curtis Good out for Panathinaikos and Dundee United respectively.
