Eight Albion players were in action away from The Hawthorns at their loan clubs over the weekend. 

Midfielder Romaine Sawyers provided his third assist of the campaign on Saturday, helping Stoke City to a 2-0 home win over Peterborough United in the Sky Bet Championship. 

Sawyers played a square ball to Mario Vrancic who found the bottom corner from 30 yards.

Tyrese Campbell was also on target for the Potters at the bet365 Stadium.

Three youngsters featured in Sky Bet League One, with Josh Griffiths keeping a clean sheet for Lincoln City as they drew 0-0 at Doncaster Rovers.

Striker Callum Morton also completed 90 minutes in the third tier, but his Fleetwood Town team suffered a last-minute defeat at home to Morecambe.

Callum Jones had given the visitors the lead early on, however, Fleetwood hit back with eight minutes remaining through Callum Johnson.

Yet there was still time for late drama. Morecambe forward Cole Stockton struck a beauty from his own half four minutes into added time to win it in spectacular fashion.

Finally in League One, Jovan Malcolm played the final 13 minutes of Accrington Stanley’s 3-2 home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

Darren Moore’s men raced into a three-goal lead after just 22 minutes thanks to strikes from Chey Dunkley, Theodor Corbeanu and Florian Kamberi.

Lewis Mansell pulled one back before the break and Joel Mumbongo added a second eight minutes into the second period.

Teenager Malcolm replaced Mansell late on but Stanley were unable to find an equaliser at the Crown Ground.

In the Vanarama National League North, goalkeeper Ted Cann made his debut for AFC Telford United having joined the Bucks on loan on Friday afternoon. 

Saul Shotton was also named in the Telford XI, with both Baggies completing 90 minutes at home to leaders AFC Fylde.

The visitors took all three points in a tight game at New Bucks Head despite Jason Oswell’s opener for Telford in the tenth minute. Goals either side of the break from Joe Piggott secure the points for Fylde.

In the Vanarama National League South, defender Zak Delaney played the full game as his Bath City side won 2-1 at home to Concord Rangers. 

Jordan Dyer gave the hosts a half-time advantage, before Rangers draw level through a Danny Green penalty.

But Bath went on to take all three points as Cody Cooke rifled home from close range. 

And finally, midfielder Toby King came on in the final five minutes for Billericay Town who lost 1-0 at home to Hampton & Richmond in the National League South. 

Jake Gray scored the only goal of the game to keep King’s loan club bottom of the division.
