Matty James helped Barnsley to record a 2-0 win over Derby County in the Sky Bet Championship last Saturday.

The on-loan Leicester City midfielder started the game and played 59 minutes for his adopted side, before being replaced by Herbie Kane.

Conor Chaplin opened the scoring for the Tykes inside half an hour before substitute Victor Adeboyejo wrapped up the three points late on.

Next up for Barnsley after the international break are two home games at Oakwell against Nottingham Forest on Saturday 21 November (3pm kick-off) and Brentford three days later (7:45pm kick-off).

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall closes down the Huddersfield goalscorer, Carel Eiting.

Staying in the Championship, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall played the full game as Luton picked up a 1-1 draw away at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

His midfield partner George Moncur struck in the first half for the visitors, who were pegged back by Carel Eiting's equaliser.

Coming up for the Hatters is a double-header at home, against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday 21 November (3pm kick-off) and then Birmingham City on the Tuesday (7pm kick-off).

Elsewhere in the second tier, centre-back Josh Knight played 90 minutes but could not prevent Wycombe Wanderers going down 2-0 at home to Nottingham Forest.

The Chairboys' three-game unbeaten run came to an end thanks to a brace from Lyle Taylor, who scored in both halves and leaves Wycombe occupying the final relegation spot.

Wycombe Wanderers' unbeaten streak in the Championship was ended at the weekend.

Gareth Ainsworth's men will look to bounce back when they take on Brentford at home on Saturday 21 November (3pm kick-off), followed by welcoming Huddersfield Town to Adams Park three days later (7pm kick-off).

Forward George Hirst, meanwhile, was an unused substitute in Rotherham United's 2-1 success over Preston North End, courtesy of goals from Richard Wood and Matt Crooks.

The 21-year-old could feature in the Millers' next fixture - away to Swansea City on Saturday 21 November (3pm kick-off).

Defender Sam Hughes was in Emirates FA Cup First Round action for Burton Albion, who were beaten 1-0 by National League side Barnet.

Hughes was not in Burton's squad for the Papa John's Trophy group stage clash with Fulham on Tuesday evening, which the Brewers drew 1-1 before winning the penalty shootout for an extra bonus point.
