Millwall loan watch: Philpot makes winning debut

JAMIE Philpot came on as a 70th-minute substitute as Woking defeated Gateshead in their opening-day National League fixture.

Philpot is on loan until October with Woking, who won on Saturday after goals from Inih Effiong and Joe Ward.

Harry Smith made his competitive debut for Swindon Town against Carlisle, coming on as a 34th-minute substitute for Luke Norris.

Smith, 22, had an eventful afternoon as he had a goal ruled out and was booked in his side’s 2-1 win.

In League One at the weekend, Jimmy Abdou scored just his 12th goal in his 376th game in 10 seasons in English football when he cracked home a left-footed half-volley from outside the box to rescue a point for AFC Wimbledon after Conor Townsend had given Scunthorpe the lead.

Harry Girling wasn’t involved for Leatherhead in their final pre-season friendly.
