While Bolton Wanderers were busy getting demolished at Blackburn, the three Trotters doing work away from the Reebok Stadium were having quiet days with their respective loan teams. The three had been involved to varying degrees with their sides over the last few weeks but with a month of service now completed, it all seems to have gone quiet.
Gary Fraser was benched by Alan Archibald as Partick Thistle traveled to St. Mirren in hopes of moving up the Scottish Premiership table. The Jags would win away 2-1 with a pair of late goals from Kallum Higginbotham and Ross Forbes that nullified Kenny McLean's 50th minute opener. The win for newly-promoted Partick Thistle takes them to eight points from five games, five back of leaders Inverness Caledonian Thistle and two behind Celtic (who have a game in hand). Gary Fraser was an unused substitute.
Marvin Sordell's Charlton Athletic welcomed previously-unbeaten Leicester City to the Valley for their fourth match of the Championship season. A pair of goals from Michael Morrison and Yann Kermorgant on either side of the halftime break would see the Addicks earn their first win of the season, thanks in part to the Foxes going down to 10 men when Matty James earned his second yellow card on 50 minutes for dissent. Marvin Sordell was an unused substitute.
Keith Andrews' Brighton & Hove Albion welcomed Millwall to the Amex but it took a goal at the death from Leonardo Ulloa to rescue a point for the Seagulls over the ten-man Lions. Two yellow cards in the first 14 minutes of the match saw Alan Dunne sent off for Millwall but it was Martyn Woolford who opened the scoring on 51 minutes. Ulloa's goal came on 89 minutes to save a point for the home side. Keith Andrews played 18 minutes for Brighton, coming on for Rohan Ince late on.
