Loan review: Four feature as Castro scores again

Quevin Castro celebrates scoring for Notts County

Four West Bromwich Albion players were in action for their loan clubs over the weekend in the Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League One and the Vanarama National League.

Defender Cedric Kipre played the full 90 for Cardiff City who drew 2-2 at Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium in the second tier.

Ryan Wintle gave Kipre’s Bluebirds an early lead but Stoke had turned the game around before the 20-minute mark thanks to efforts from Tyrese Campbell and Liam Delap. 

Former Baggies striker Callum Robinson managed to grab an equaliser after the break though and the encounter ended level, leaving Cardiff 20th in the table.

In League One, fellow centre-back Caleb Taylor also completed the whole match for Cheltenham Town who suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat at Forest Green Rovers. 

Myles Peart-Harris got the winner 15 minutes from time. The setback means Taylor’s town sit 17th, five points above the danger zone.

In the National League, midfielder Quevin Castro scored for the second weekend running as Notts County bagged another three points and four goals on their travels, overcoming Maidenhead United 4-3.

Castro started for the league leaders and recorded their second goal of the afternoon when his left-wing cross sailed all the way through into the far corner without a touch off a head in the penalty area. 

The 21-year-old, who also scored in last week’s 4-1 win at Scunthorpe United, got through just under an hour in Berkshire before being replaced by Sam Austin with the score at 3-1 to Notts County. 

County’s other goals on the afternoon were scored by Ruben Rodrigues and Macauley Langstaff who hit a brace, while the hosts’ strikes came courtesy of Emile Acquah (2) and Kane Ferdinand. 

Elsewhere in the National League, central midfielder Jamie Andrews played another full game for Yeovil Town who were held to a goalless draw at home by relegation-threatened Scunthorpe United.
