By SFC Media time Mon 16 Sep Loan Watch

Moi Elyounoussi made his Celtic debut and Fraser Forster also featured, as the Scottish Premership champions maintained their 100% start with a 1-0 win over Hamilton Academical.

Elyounoussi’s cross was converted by James Forrest early on to give Neil Lennon’s side all three points.

Elsewhere, Tyreke Johnson scored a stunning goal for Woking in their 2-2 draw with Ebbsfleet United in the National League.

Johnson picked the ball up before drifting inside from the left and unleashing an unstoppable drive to put the hosts 1-0 up, before winning a penalty that Jake Hyde hit the crossbar with. Hyde did then get on the scoresheet, but goals from Alex Reid and Myles Weston earned the visitors a draw.

Harrison Reed played the duration of Fulham’s 1-1 home draw with West Brom in the Championship.

Anthony Knockaert’s goal looked to have set the hosts on their way to victory, but Semi Ajayi’s powerful header meant a share of the spoils.

Marcus Barnes came off the bench for Eastleigh during their 1-1 draw with Bromley, while in the National League South, Harry Hamblin struck a late equaliser for Bath City as they drew 2-2 with Eastbourne Borough.

Guido Carrillo replaced Youssef En-Nesyri at half-time as Leganes fell to a 3-0 home defeat to Villareal.

In Turkey, Mario Lemina had his Galatasaray debut cut short through injury as he was replaced after 30 minutes of their 3-0 success over Kasimpasa.

Wesley Hoedt played the full 90 minutes as Royal Antwerp earned a 2-1 away victory against Anderlecht.

Lior Rafaelov opened the scoring for the visitors, before Nacer Chadli levelled on 65 minutes. Anderlecht’s Albert-Mboyo Sambi Lokonga saw red with 12 minutes remaining and Koji Miyoshi’s late strike sealed the points.

Alfie Jones and Tom O’Connor helped Gillingham to record back-to-back home league wins with a 2-0 success against Wycombe at Prestfield.

In the MLS, Josh Sims came off the bench on 39 minutes from New York Red Bulls during their 4-2 defeat against Seattle Sounders.

Young goalkeeper Alex Cull was also in action for AFC Totton in the Southern League Division One as they recorded a 3-2 away win at Bristol Manor Farm.
