West Brom enjoyed a routine 2-0 win over npower Championship side Nottingham Forest.
Youssuf Mulumbu set them on their way with a 25-yard drive in the eighth minute and Shane Long added a penalty in the 18th after being fouled by Danny Collins.
The Baggies had a third goal disallowed for offside in a rare moment of note in a second half disrupted by constant substitutions, with Forest giving an outing to former Sheffield United full-back Andrew Taylor as a trialist.
Michael Kightly scored with his first touch as a Stoke player but Tony Pulis' side were held to a 1-1 draw by Bundesliga newcomers Greuther Furth in Germany.
Kightly finished from a narrow angle after Marc Wilson's long ball was flicked on by Peter Crouch to give the Potters the lead inside five minutes.
But Tobias Mikkelsen forced a fine save from Asmir Begovic and the hosts were denied an equaliser by an offside flag and then by Matthew Upson's intervention.
Upson was to blame, though for the equaliser when his foul at a corner allowed Bernd Nehrig to fire home a penalty.
Ryan Shotton hit a post and Stoke's second debutant, Geoff Cameron, went close with a free-kick before Ilir Azemi wasted a late chance to win it for the Bundesliga newcomers.
A Manchester United XI featuring little in the way of first-team experience went down 2-0 at Peterborough, George Boyd and Nicky Ajose with the goals for the team managed by Sir Alex Ferguson's son Darren.
Federico Macheda and summer signing Nick Powell were the names of note in the Red Devils' line-up, while Ryan Tunnicliffe featured against the team where he spent last season on loan and former Hull loanee Josh King came on as a substitute.
Winston Reid's late goal earned West Ham a 1-1 draw in a feisty game at Braga's spectacular A Pedreira ground - the name means ``The Quarry'', due to the rock-face behind one goal.
Mark Noble's deflected free-kick clipped the post before Braga took the lead with a Paulo Vinicius penalty after a handball by James Collins.
Curiously, the hosts emerged in their away kit for the second half - and it proved unlucky, as substitute Baiano had a goal disallowed before Reid poked home the equaliser after James Tomkins met Matthew Taylor's corner.
