The Bank Holiday weekend saw three Rovers players out on loan get amongst the goals.

David Goodwillie grabbed his first for Dundee United as they claimed their first three points of the season with an emphatic 4-0 win over St. Johnstone.

Anton Forrester scored his second goal in as many games for Bury as they threw away a two-goal lead away at Burton Albion as the game ended a 2-2.

Whilst Curtis Haley marked his first appearance for Bamber Bridge on Saturday with the opening goal in a 4-0 win over Radcliffe Borough.

Monday saw Haley come through another 90 minutes for Brig as they defeated Clitheroe 2-0.

Elsewhere, Chesterfield maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-1 win over Southend United. Ryan Edwards, who has extended his loan spell with the Spireites for a further two months, was an unused substitute.

Defender Jack O'Connell played the full match for Rochdale but they slipped to a 1-0 away defeat at Plymouth Argyle.

Nuno Henrique wasn't involved as Arouca lost 2-1 at home to Estoril.

Matthew Urwin was on the winning side once more as Stalybridge Celtic beat Gainsborough Trinity 2-0 on Saturday. Whilst they were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Bradford Park Avenue on Monday.

Edinho Junior didn't feature as Whitehawk claimed their first Conference South win with a 6-2 triumph over Dorchester Town on Saturday, but they couldn't follow that up as they lost 1-0 to Dover Athletic on Bank Holiday Monday.
