Five Baggies players were in action for their loan clubs over the latest weekend.

In Sky Bet League One, defensive duo Caleb Taylor and Zac Ashworth have helped Bolton Wanderers secure a spot in the play-offs.

Taylor came on as 81st-minute substitute in their 3-3 draw at Peterborough on the final day of the campaign in the third tier, replacing Ricardo Santos, while Ashworth remained on the bench.

Kyle Dempsey, Dion Charles and Cameron Jerome all scored for Bolton, with Malik Mothersille (2) and Joel Randall on target for Posh.

Taylor and Ashworth will meet Barnsley over two legs in the play-offs. The winners will come up against Peterborough or Oxford United in the final.

Ethan Ingram, Jamie Andrews and Mo Faal all played their final matches of the season for their loan teams in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday afternoon.

Ingram started for Salford City in their 2-2 home draw with Harrogate Town. The full-back was replaced by Daniel Chesters after 63 minutes at the Peninsula Stadium.

Callum Hendry and Ryan Watson found the net for the hosts, while Abraham Odoh and Matty Foulds notched for the away side. 

Salford finished 20th in the standings, nine points clear of the drop.

Midfielder Andrews completed 71 minutes of Grimsby Town’s 2-0 reverse at Crawley Town.

The Albion man came off for Evan Khouri inside the final 20 of a game which was decided thanks to strikes from Danilo Orsi-Dadomo and Klaidi Lolos. 

Andrews’ men ended the season in 21st position. 

Striker Faal played 70 minutes of Walsall’s disappointing 5-1 loss at AFC Wimbledon.

The forward, who was replaced by Josh Gordon in South London, unfortunately nodded the ball into his own net from a corner to make the score 5-1 to the hosts in the second period. 

Walsall’s only goal arrived from Isaac Hutchinson via the penalty spot in the first 45, with Wimbledon’s Omar Hutchinson scoring a hat-trick at The Cherry Red Records Stadium. Ronan Curtis was also on target for the home team.

The result meant the Saddlers recorded an 11th-placed finish, five points adrift of the play-off places.

Finally, young goalkeeper Ronnie Hollingshead played 90 minutes for Alvechurch FC as their Southern League Central Division campaign ended with a 3-2 defeat at St Ives Town.

Jaanai Gordon-Hutton bagged a brace for Ronnie’s men, but a double from Jonathan Edwards and an effort from Michael Richens secured the win for the hosts.

Alvechurch finished 16th in the table, six points clear of trouble.
