Four players in action at the weekend

REMI Matthews made his first appearance since the start of October on Saturday as Hamilton Academical drew 1-1 at Dunfermline Athletic in the Scottish Cup fifth round.

Paul McMullan's first half goal for the hosts was cancelled out by Danny Redmond's strike 16 minutes from time, taking the game to a replay.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper had previously been sidelined for a prolonged spell by a shoulder injury.

Elsewhere in Scotland, Tony Andreu played 90 minutes as Dundee United went down to a 3-0 defeat to Championship promotion rivals Falkirk.

Goals from John Baird, Aaron Muirhead and James Craigen gave the home side an emphatic victory, closing the gap between the two sides to three points.

Closer to home, a last minute Tom Elliott goal prevented Declan Rudd's Charlton Athletic from collecting a Sky Bet League One win at AFC Wimbledon.

Charlton had led for much of the contest through Ricky Holmes' free-kick, only for Elliott to notch in injury-time before being shown a second yellow card for over-celebrating and subsequently seeing red. 

The same division saw Scunthorpe United's 26-game unbeaten home run come to an end as they were beaten 1-0 by Shrewsbury Town.

Freddie Ladapo's second half strike settled the contest, with City youngster Harry Toffolo playing the full match for The Iron.

Finally, Carlton Morris is yet to make his Rotherham United debut after completing a deadline day move due to currently being sidelined with a minor hamstring issue.
