A busy night for British teams in the Europa League saw wins and celebrations for Spurs and Stoke, while Celtic came away with a draw.

Birmingham won in Belgium but Fulham faced defeat in Poland.

A sensational goal from Roman Pavlyuchenko put Tottenham top of Group A, stunning opponents Rubin Kazan with a 25-yard free kick.

Meanwhile striker Kenwyne Jones headed Stoke's first goal of three against Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Stoke's 3-0 win gives them a solid chance of reaching the Europa League knockout stages.

Celtic achieved a 1-1 draw against French side Rennes, recovering after a bizarre own-goal from Cha Du-Ri.

Fulham lost 1-0 against Wisla Krakow in Poland.

Birmingham won 2-1 away with a last-minute winner from Chris Wood against Club Brugge in Belgium.

But the game ended on a serious note after a head injury to Birmingham's Pablo Ibanez. He was stretchered off, with his team-mate Guirane N'daw in tears.
