Romain Amalfitano made his return from injury for Dijon on Friday night - but couldn't inspire his side to victory.
The midfielder appeared as a 65th minute substitute as the Ligue 2 outfit lost 2-0 at Troyes.
Another fit-again player was Jonas Gutierrez, but the Argentine had to watch from the bench as Norwich saw off Sunderland.
Conor Newton played for 74 minutes while Adam Campbell appeared as a 60th minute substitute as St. Mirren lost 3-0 to Celtic while Mehdi Abeid played for the first 60 minutes of Panathinaikos' 3-1 home win over Apollon Smimis.
Former Newcastle midfielder Darren Ambrose scored the visitors' consolation goal.
Shane Ferguson wasn't involved as Birmingham were beaten 2-1 by Reading.
