Tasmania’s two goalkeepers playing in the UK were both on the bench in New Year’s Day matches.
Simon Miotto was on the bench for Tranmere Rovers as they lost 3-2 away to Rochdale in Division One.
Alex Cisak was on the bench for Accrington Stanley, who grabbed their first away win of the season, downing Morecamb 2-1 in Division Two.
West Bromwich Albion were unlucky to lose 2-1 to Manchester United at the Hawthorns.
Wayne Rooney had put United ahead after only two minutes with a simple header from Patrice Evra’s left-wing cross before James Morrison equalised in the 14th minute with a stunning strike.
West Brom should have been awarded a penalty when Graham Dorrans was blatantly brought down by Gary Neville, but the referee waved play on.
The home side did earn a penalty in the second half when Jerome Thomas was tripped by Rio Ferdinand, but Odemwingie placed his spot-kick wide.
The winner was another simple header, this time from substitute Hernandez after a corner.
