Mark Schwarzer responded to his omission from the latest Socceroos squad with a clean sheet on debut for Chelsea, while Dario Vidosic opened his account in Switzerland

UK

Mark Schwarzer made his competitive debut for Chelsea and kept a clean sheet as they beat Swindon Town 2-0 in the Capital One Cup, with his fellow Aussie Massimo Luongo seeing out the 90 minutes for the beaten hosts.

GOOD WEEK/BAD WEEK
Big winner - Dario Vidosic

Vidosic helped his side further up the table, playing a full 90 minutes, scored in the 70th minute and set up the other in the 77th as FC Sion came from behind to win 2-1 over Lausanne-Sport. The win moves Sion up to eighth on the table.

 In the doghouse - Tom Rogic

Poor Rogic is enduring something of a tough time early in his first full season in Scotland. He made only his second start for Celtic in all competitions on Wednesday, lining up against second tier side Greenock Morton in the League Cup. In what was a shock 1-0 defeat in extra-time for the Scottish champions, Rogic failed to make an impact and was substituted in the 65th minute.
