There were plenty of Saints in action at the weekend, as Josh Sims made his New York Red Bulls debut in Major League Soccer during their meeting with New York City on Sunday.

The Saints winger replaced goalscorer Alex Muyl on 65 minutes during a 2-1 away defeat. Muyl had opened the scoring, before a Maximiliano Moralez penalty and a Heber strike earned the hosts a victory.

In Scotland, Fraser Forster made his second Celtic debut as they kept up their 100% start in the Scottish Premiership, with a 3-1 victory over Hearts.

Vakoun Issouf Bayo’s brace either side of a Callum McGregor goal put the hosts in the control, before Forster saved a late Conor Washington penalty, only for the former QPR forward to find the net with the rebound.

In the Championship, Harrison Reed was an unused substitute as Fulham fell to a 2-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest at Craven Cottage.

Lewis Grabban got a goal in each half to earn Sabri Lamouchi’s men a first away victory of the campaign, ending Fulham’s impressive run of three straight league wins, despite Aleksandar Mitrovic’s late effort.

Alfie Jones was also involved in Football League action, as he played the full 90 minutes of Gillingham’s 1-0 defeat against Coventry at Birmingham City’s St Andrew’s Stadium.

In the National League, Tyreke Johnson helped Woking continue their fine form by beating previously unbeaten Solihull Moors. Two goals in the opening sixteen minutes saw The Cards go top of the table at the expense of their opponents.

Harry Hamblin played 66 minutes before being replaced by Frankie Artus, as Bath City’s unbeaten start to the campaign came to an end in a 3-2 defeat to Slough Town.
