Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru
scored his first and second goals for loan-team Anderlecht, as the Belgian champions won 3-2 against Lokeren on Friday night.
It was a perfect start to the game for Onyekuru, with the forward, signed by Everton from Eupen this summer, scoring after just three minutes.
And after Lokeren had overturned their deficit, it was 20-year-old Onyekuru who equalised with 13 minutes left to play.
There was late joy for Anderlecht as Lukasz Teodorczyk scored in the final minute to secure all three points and lift Rene Weiler’s team up to 10th in the table.
Brendan Galloway and Tyias Browning both completed 90 minutes in Sunderland’s 2-1 home loss to newly-promoted Sheffield United on Saturday.
Debutant Clayton Donaldson scored either side of half-time for the visitors, with former Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell’s stoppage-time strike proving nothing more than a consolation for Simon Grayson’s team.
The Black Cats are 20th in the Championship, with five points from a possible 18, and tomorrow night welcome Kieran Dowell’s loan side, Nottingham Forest, to the Stadium of Light.
Dowell played the final 27 minutes of Forest’s 3-1 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday evening, a result that leaves the East Midlands team in 12th and one point adrift of a play-off spot.
Midfielder Joe Williams completed the full game for Barnsley as they drew 1-1 with Preston North End at Deepdale.
Williams’ team, 15th in the division, fell behind to Sean Maguire’s 23rd-minute strike but hit back in quick time, with England Under-19 international Brad Potts levelling on 25 minutes.
Left-back Antonee Robinson made his Bolton debut in the Trotters’ 3-0 home reverse to high-flying Middlesbrough, for whom Britt Assombalonga scored twice, before Marvin Johnson capped a fine afternoon for the Teessiders.
There was a Birmingham City debut for Liam Walsh, as the Midlanders were edged 1-0 by Norwich City in a tight affair at Carrow Road.
Midfielder Walsh was replaced by forward Che Adams on 57 minutes as boss Harry Redknapp tried to engineer a way back into the game for his side following Nelson Oliveira’s fifth-minute strike for the Canaries.
Callum Connolly made his Ipswich Town bow following the defender's deadline-day, season-long move to Portman Road. Connolly played the full 90 minutes at QPR but was unable to prevent his side from falling to a 2-1 defeat.
Jamie Mackie and Luke Freeman scored for the R’s, with Manchester City loanee Bersant Celina on target for Ipswich, who remain fourth following their strong start to the Championship campaign.
Matthew Pennington didn’t feature for second-placed Leeds as they thrashed Burton Albion 5-0 at Elland Road. Pennington has only recently returned to training after sustaining an ankle problem against Bolton on the opening day of the season.
Midfielder Conor Grant was forced to sit out Crewe’s 5-1 thumping of Chesterfield while he continues to recuperate from the head injury he suffered in the Railwaymen’s game at Grimsby last week.
