Seven West Bromwich Albion men were in action for their loan clubs away from The Hawthorns over the bank holiday weekend.
We’ll start in the Sky Bet Championship where duo Alex Mowatt and Cedric Kipre both suffered defeats for Middlesbrough and Cardiff City respectively.
Mowatt came on after an hour in Boro’s 1-0 loss at Rotherham United on Monday, replacing Hayden Hackney.
Hakeem Odoffin scored the only goal of the game to secure survival for the Millers.
Kipre’s Cardiff lost 2-1 at home to Huddersfield Town on Sunday afternoon, with the Baggies man playing 73 minutes before being swapped for Andy Rinomhota.
Joseph Hungbo’s strike and an own goal from Bluebirds defender Jack Simpson put the Terriers 2-0 up in Wales. Isaak Davies pulled one back late on but it proved to be too little, too late.
There were mixed fortunes for young defensive duo Caleb Taylor and Zac Ashworth on the penultimate weekend of Sky Bet League One action.
Caleb’s Cheltenham Town recorded a brilliant 3-0 win at Wycombe Wanderers, with Taylor playing the full 90 minutes.
Aiden Keena bagged a brace and Alfie May also scored on what was a super Saturday for the Robins.
Zac also completed a full game for Burton Albion who were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Plymouth Argyle – a result which confirmed the home side’s promotion to the Sky Bet Championship.
Niall Ennis scored the game’s only goal on the stroke on half-time.
In Sky Bet League Two, Tom Fellows helped Crawley Town to a point against Walsall which confirmed their safety, relegating Hartlepool United in the process.
Fellows’ men drew 0-0 at home to the Saddlers, with Tom playing 69 minutes at the Broadfield Stadium. Anthony Grant came on for the youngsters for the final 21 minutes.
Goalkeeper Ted Cann played his final match of the season for Leamington in the Vanarama National League North.
The Brakes, who had already been relegated, beat Southport 2-1 at home.
And finally, over in the Republic of Ireland, Rayhaan Tulloch played a key role in a duo of victories for Dundalk.
The attacker started both Friday night’s 3-2 home win over Drogheda and Monday evening’s 2-0 victory at UCD, coming off after 88 minutes in the latter.
The two triumphs have lifted Rayhaan’s team up to fourth in the standings.
