Arsenal left-back Cohen Bramall made his league debut for loan side Birmingham City and played 90 minutes in the Blues’ 2-0 loss to Reading.
The 21-year-old appeared at left wing-back against the Royals. Bramall played the full 90 minutes after playing 78 minutes in the Carabao Cup against Bournemouth just days before, reports Arsenal.com. He was a slight injury doubt, but was evidently well enough to play.
It’s an encouraging start to professional life for Bramall. City manager Harry Redknapp clearly rates him and it looks he’ll be given the opportunities to cement himself as a first-team regular.
Not so fortunate was Carl Jenkinson. He started the game against Reading, but was forced off after half an hour with a dislocated shoulder. He’ll be out for months, though has remained at Birmingham for the time being.
Stephy Mavididi also featured in the Championship, coming on as a late sub and playing 15 minutes as Preston drew 0-0 with Middlesbrough.
Elsewhere, Japanese international Takuma Asano came off the bench for Stuttgart as they defeated Mainz 1-0 at home.
