Ryan Strain opened the scoring as St Mirren drew 1-1 with Hearts who had Kye Rowles and Cammy Devlin in their side in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.
Strain fired in a fourth-minute free-kick, which took a deflection helping find its way in. Devlin had given away the foul for a challenge on Keanu Baccus.
Baccus started and was replaced at half-time, while Strain put in a full shift. Devlin started and played 81 minutes, while Rowles put in a full shift.
Devlin earned a 5/10 rating from The Scotsman who wrote: “Though you can never question his work-rate and enthusiasm, you can question his use of the ball at times.”
Rowles earned a 7/10: “Struggled to deal with Curtis Main before the equaliser. Afterwards he was a different player as he constantly won his defensive battles.”
Mark Birighitti and Aziz Behich were both in action, playing full games on Sunday, as Dundee United lost 2-0 at home to Rangers, conceding two second-half goals.
Behich, who has been linked with a move to Turkish powerhouse Galatasaray, was solid on the left-side of defence dealing with dangerous Gers forward Fashion Sakala.
“As far as I’m aware, there’s no interest (from Galatasaray),” United manager Liam Fox told Fox Sports News about the transfer speculation on Behich last week.
“What I will say is that Aziz had a fantastic World Cup and we were all delighted watching him. He’s a top player and good players will always attract interest.”
Aaron Mooy started and played 63 minutes in Celtic’s 2-0 victory over Kilmarnock, receiving a 7/10 rating from Glasgow Live.
Glasgow Live wrote: “Nice link-up in the midfield from the off. Great lofted balls to left and right on occasion. Replaced on the hour.”
In the English FA Cup, Tom Rogic started and played 56 minutes, but only earned a 3/10 rating as West Bromwich Albion drew 3-3 at fifth tier Chesterfield.
The Birmingham Mail wrote: “Poor showing from Rogic, who has blown hot and cold in an Albion shirt up to now. You wanted him to dominate the ball in midfield, but he often wanted too much time on the ball and he left the field having made barely any impact.”
Harry Souttar was an unused substitute on Sunday as Stoke City eased past Hartlepool United 3-0.
Bailey Wright continued his run in the Sunderland side, playing a full game in a back three, as they fought back to late to 2-1 win at Shrewsbury.
Wright earned a 6/10 rating from the Sunderland Echo who wrote: “Very steady at the heart of the back three, only faltered once in the second half and O’Nien was there to help him out. Did well.”
Riley McGree started and played 59 minutes as Middlesbrough were bundled out 5-1 by Brighton & Hove Albion.
McGree earned a 6/10 rating from Teesside Live who wrote: “Boro’s brightest player on the day. So much of their first-half success on the counter came through the Australian.”
Callum Elder put in a full shift as Hull City lost 2-0 to Fulham. Elder earned a 6/10 rating from the Hull Daily Mail who wrote: “Booked early in the second half, after a steady enough first period. Perhaps could have tracked Wilson in the build-up to the goal, but would need to see a replay. Solid enough in the second.”
Aussie goalkeeper Nicholas Bilokapic made his debut for Huddersfield Town as they lost 3-1 away to Preston North End.
Bilokapic earned a 6/10 rating from Yorkshire Live, who wrote: “Made his first start for the Terriers having come off the bench at this stage of the competition last year. Made a great low stop early on and looked confident on crosses. Powerless on the goals.”
Dean Bouzanis earned a 6/10 from the Tilehurst End after a rare start and clean sheet as Reading won 2-0 over Watford.
The Tilehurst End wrote: “Largely untroubled for the first 70 minutes before making a couple of relatively routine saves and interceptions. May have snuck a 7/10 but he did his best to let Watford back into the game by fumbling what seemed like a routine catch towards the end, that thankfully he got away with.”
