- Leicester City's Josh Knight scored his second goal for Peterborough United in a climactic 3-3 draw at Wycombe Wanderers  
- In France, Islam Slimani registered another assist for AS Monaco during a 3-1 defeat by Montpellier
- Adrien Silva (Monaco), Rachid Ghezzal (Fiorentina), Kamal Sowah (OH Leuven), Fousseni Diabaté (Amiens) also featured in Europe
- In the Football League, there were outings for Daniel Iversen (Rotherham United) and Ryan Loft (Carlisle United)

The 22-year-old defender-turned-midfielder, who made his 12th appearance on the weekend, netted his first goal for the Posh as recently as late August in a 3-0 home win over Sunderland. 

Knight added to that tally on Saturday at Adams Park to put Darren Ferguson's men two goals in front, but the visitors ultimately had to settle for a point due to Adebayo Akinfenwa's 95th-minute penalty.

As a result of Peterborough sealing their 18th point of the 2019/20 campaign, they currently sit in seventh place in League 1, one point adrift of Sunderland in the final play-off berth in the third tier.

Elsewhere, striker Islam Slimani registered his fourth assist in three games, for team-mate Wissam Ben Yedder, during AS Monaco's 3-1 defeat by Montpellier in the French Ligue 1 on Saturday.

Algeria international Slimani has been in superb form for the Principality club over recent weeks, scoring in last week's 4-1 success over Stade Brest, while also laying up goals for two of his colleagues. 

The 31-year-old's impressive performances have helped propel Monaco up the standings in France's top tier, with Leonardo Jardim's men now 16th with nine points from nine matches.

Foxes midfielder Adrien Silva, on the other hand, was a late substitute during the encounter at Stade de la Mosson, replacing Slimani himself, to make his eighth appearance for Les Monégasques.

Also on the continent, winger Rachid Ghezzal made his second outing from the bench for Fiorentina in a third successive victory for the Serie A outfit against Udinese on Sunday.

Following an appearance in last weekend's 3-1 win over AC Milan, Ghezzal emerged in the 87th minute as La Viola rose to eighth in Italian football's top division with a 1-0 win on matchday seven.

In Belgium, midfielder Kamal Sowah also starred for Oud-Heverlee Leuven who, despite a 3-2 defeat by Lokeren on Saturday, remain top of the Proximus League in the 2019/20 season's first phase.

The second division in Belgian football is split into two phases, with the winners of each playing in a play-off for promotion, unless one side finishes top on both occasions and rises to the top tier automatically.

Fousseni Diabaté, meanwhile, was a second-half substitute for Amiens in a 3-1 victory over Marseille, sealing a vital three points for his side, which sends Les Licornes up to 11th in Ligue 1.

Back in England, goalkeeper Daniel Iversen also starred for Rotherham United. The Millers were 4-0 victors over Coventry City at New York Stadium on Saturday afternoon as Iversen, a Denmark Under-21s international, kept the third cleansheet of his loan spell with the League 1 club.

Finally, Ryan Loft's 13th outing for Carlisle in League 2, with nine minutes to go, ended in a 1-0 defeat by Newport County at Rodney Parade, leaving the Cumbrians 18th in the early league standings.

Loft has netted on two occasions for Carlisle, against Scunthorpe United in the league and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Leasing.com Trophy.

Andy King (Rangers), Layton Ndukwu (Southend United), Sam Hughes (Salford City), on the other hand, did not feature for their loan clubs over the most recent weekend of action.
