On English soil, the full round of Football League fixtures saw the likes of Jan Zamburek, Jaakko Oksanen and Arthur Read turn out for their clubs, whilst Luka Racic was an unused substitute for Northampton Town.
Jan was introduced from the bench for Shrewsbury as they hosted Bristol Rovers. He entered the field just after 20 minutes but was unable to help the side seal a win as defeat came when Brandon Hanlan got the only goal of the game. Town will be back in action this weekend at home to Rochdale.
As for Jaakko Oksanen, he started the match as AFC Wimbledon slipped to a narrow defeat to a strong Hull City side in Sky Bet League One. The youngster played the first hour, but the only goal of the game came from Hull’s Keane Lewis-Potter. The side will look to dust themselves down when they head away from home again this weekend to take on Burton Albion. The Dons are currently in 13th in the league table.
A League One win would come for Northampton, though, with Luka an unused sub on the night as they beat Swindon Town 2-1 with goals from Christopher Missilou and Danny Rose. The young Dane will be pushing to get back into Keith Curle’s side this weekend when they host Charlton Athletic this weekend.
