Josh Sims came off the bench to help Reading to a 3-2 victory over Preston North End in the Championship.

The Royals were twice pegged back after goals from Sam Baldock and Tiago Ilori before Sims teed up Leandro Bacuna to settle the contest with nine minutes to go and earn Paul Clement’s men a first league win of the campaign.

Elsewhere in the Championship, Harrison Reed came on in the 66th minute to replace Richie Smallwood, as Blackburn Rovers were cruelly denied all three points against Aston Villa.

Bradley Dack gave the hosts the lead with 15 minutes to play at Ewood Park, but Conor Hourihane’s late free-kick helped salvage a point.

In League One, Jake Hesketh was an unused substitute as Burton Albion ended Sunderland’s unbeaten start with a 2-1 success at the Pirelli Stadium.

Kingsley Latham played the full 90 minutes as Dorchester Town twice battled back from behind to earn a 2-2 draw at Beaconsfield, while Harrison Davis came off the bench in Tiverton Town’s draw by the same scoreline at Kings Lanley.

North of the border, Alfie Jones was an unused substitute as St Mirren started life under new manager Oran Kearney with a positive 0-0 draw against Celtic at the Paisley 2021 Stadium.

Jordy Clasie played the duration of Feyenoord’s 1-1 draw with AZ Alkmaar in the Dutch Erdivisie.

Ryan Seager was also involved as Telstar fell to a 2-0 defeat way to Cambuur in Eerste Divisie.

There was disappointment for Guido Carrillo, who missed a penalty as Leganes fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to Villareal.
