Mehdi Abeid made his competitive debut for Panathinaikos on Sunday as they beat Panaitolikos 2-0 at the Stadio Apostolos Nikolaidis.

Wearing the number 20, the midfielder played for 73 minutes and picked up a booking.

Also making a bow for his new club was Adam Campbell, who came on at half-time for Carlisle against Coventry on Saturday.

However, the Cumbrians were already three goals down and ended up losing 4-0.

Conor Newton, meanwhile, made his second debut for St. Mirren as the Buddies drew 1-1 with Kilmarnock. The Newcastle loanee, who spent the second half of last season in Paisley, played the whole game.

And Jonathan Mitchell made a second coming for Workington, starting between the posts as they lost 2-1 to Skrill North title favourites Telford. He was at Borough Park for part of last term and impressed on his return.

Shane Ferguson started for Birmingham but was withdrawn in the 84th minute as they lost 1-0 at home to Brighton.

Michael Richardson was a 71st minute substitute for Accrington Stanley as they were beaten 3-0 by Bury and James Tavernier missed Shrewsbury's win over Swindon with an ankle injury.
