Mat Ryan played 90 minutes for Brighton as they lost 2-0 to Southampton after going down to ten men. Aaron Mooy was an unused substitute for the Premier League side.
In the Championship, every team played twice in an action-packed double match day.
Jackson Irvine was made Hull City captain for the first time in a 1-0 home defeat to Blackburn Rovers. In their second match, Irvine played 88 minutes in a 3-1 loss to Bristol City.

In League One, Mark Milligan’s Southend United season continues to go, well, south. The Shrimpers skipper played every minute of two more losses — 2-0 to Peterborough and 4-3 to Wycombe.
That Wycombe clash was particularly harsh, with Southend 2-0 up before a Milligan own goal started a nightmare collapse that saw them concede the winner at the death.
Southend have now lost all five of their league matches so far this year.
It’s a better story for Ryan Edwards, whose League One Burton side played 80 minutes in a 4-2 win over Oxford United then the full 90 in a goalless draw with Shrewsbury.

In League Two, Jack Iredale put in 90 minutes for Carlisle United, going down 2-0 to Cheltenham.
Jordan Lyden played the entire match for Swindon Town in a 1-0 loss to Northampton.

Awer Mabil opened his account in the Danish Superliga this year in a 2-0 win for FC Midtjylland over SonderjyskE before being substituted after 78 minutes.
He controlled the ball well at the back post before rifling it into the bottom of the net.
Zach Duncan and Mustafa Amini both played the full 90 as AGF Aarhus beat Brondby 3-0. Coincidentally, both received yellow cards, while Alex Gersbach was an unused substitute.
Aziz Behich played the full match as his Basaksehir lost 2-1 to Fenerbahce.
Nikita Rukavytsya is loving life with Maccabi Haifa, adding another brace to his recent goalscoring tally.

That brings his record to four goals in his last three matches.
Adam Taggart played 86 minutes in a 20- loss for his Suwon Bluewings to Gyeongnam.
Mitchell Langerak had a tough day between the sticks for Nagoya Grampus, losing 5-1 to Yokohama F Marinos. Yokohama are coached by Ange Postecoglou, who turned around a three-match losing streak with the win.
