Many former Everton players were in action for their current clubs over the weekend.
A first goal in over 12 months for striker Francis Jeffers helped Sheffield Wednesday to a 4-1 win over Charlton.
The former Blues striker, who also had a stint with the Addicks, latched onto the end of a Michael Gray cross to break his goalscoring duck.
Nick Chadwick, who recently joined League Two outfit Shrewsbury Town, was handed his debut by former Preston North End manager Paul Simpson when he threw him on as a 68th minute substitute against Port Vale. Unfortunately, he failed to score as the Shrews were held to a 1-1 draw.
Current Preston boss Alan Irvine guided his side to a vital derby victory over Burnley.
Two dubious second-half penalty decisions gave Irvine's side the win in the Lancashire clash and lifted Preston to fifth in the Championship.
Everton's former record signing James Beattie was just minutes away from starting his career a Stoke City with an astounding win against Chelsea.
The Potters were 1-0 up until the final few moments of the clash, but goals from Juliano Belletti in the 88th minute and Frank Lampard in the 94th, meant a dream start wasn't to be.
Meanwhile, Lawrence Wilson had the unfortunate experience of putting the ball through his own net for Chester as Chesterfield romped to a 3-1 victory.
A corner on the right should have been cleared by Wilson, but the City defender, who didn't appear to be under any pressure, headed the ball past the stranded keeper and into the corner of the net.
Elsewhere, Danny Cadamarteri completed the full 90 minutes and produced a fine performance in Hudderfield's 2-1 win over Swindon Town.
