Premier League

Leon Best (Aston Villa 1-1 Newcastle) Best’s second-half strike at Villa Park ensured that Newcastle maintained their unbeaten start to the season. The striker saw his initial header saved by international team-mate Shay Given, but reacted quickest to fire home the loose ball for the equaliser.

Paddy Kenny (Wolves 0-3 QPR) Kenny kept his third clean sheet of the season at Molineux on Saturday, helping QPR to an away win which may prove to be vital come the season’s end.

Npower Championship

Jeff Hendrick (Nottingham Forest 1-2 Derby) Nineteen-year-old Hendrick sparked wild celebrations among the travelling support in the City Ground. Not long after missing a free header, the Dubliner drilled a low shot past Lee Camp for the winner. Forest’s goal came courtesy of a fifth-minute penalty, scored by Andy Reid.

Keith Treacy (Peterborough 2-1 Burnley) Treacy cracked in a 25-yard bullet to halve Burnley’s two-goal deficit on the stroke of half time, but despite severe pressure in the second half, the Clarets couldn’t find an equaliser.

League One

Stephen Quinn (Sheffield United 3-0 Colchester) Quinn sealed the Blades victory 18 minutes from time, calmly finishing after a neat pass from Welsh international Ched Evans.

Jimmy Ryan (Walsall 2-2 Scunthorpe) What a time to score your first goal for your new club — with four minutes of additional time played, Ryan popped up on the edge of the box to save a point for Scunthorpe.

Scottish Premier League

Paul Heffernan (Aberdeen 2-2 Kilmarnock) Heffernan opened the scoring at Pittodrie with his fifth goal of the season. The striker headed Killie into the lead in the 16th minute when he connected sweetly with Liam Kelly’s cross.

Jon Daly (Dundee United 3-1 Inverness CT) Daly marked his return from injury by scoring with his first touch of the ball, a 72nd-minute header which wrapped up all three points for United.
