Loan Review | Four feature as Mo Faal finds the net again

Mo Faal celebrates scoring for Doncaster Rovers against Sutton

Mo Faal scored his fourth Sky Bet League Two goal of the season for Doncaster Rovers on Saturday as they recorded a resounding 4-1 home win over Sutton United.

The towering front man notched Rovers’ fourth and final effort of the afternoon, squeezing the ball under Sutton’s goalkeeper from inside the penalty area after 67 minutes.

Faal was also involved in his side’s first strike in the opening 45, nipping in to win the ball before being brought down in the box, with Joe Ironside converting the resulting spot kick.

Ironside went on to score another in the second period, while Zain Westbrooke also found the net prior to Faal’s finish. Harry Smith scored nine minutes into stoppage time for Sutton to deny the hosts a clean sheet.

The Baggies striker completed 81 minutes at the Eco-Power Stadium and was replaced by Jack Goodman.

The result lifts Mo’s team up to 19th in the division, four points clear of danger after 13 matches.

It was a super weekend for Mo Faal

Elsewhere in League Two, defender Ethan Ingram played 90 minutes for Salford City who suffered a 3-2 defeat at Wrexham.

The result leaves Ingram's men in 15th place.

Midfielder Jamie Andrews started for Grimsby Town on Saturday afternoon, but he was unable to prevent the Mariners from slipping to a 2-0 home defeat to Accrington Stanley.

Andrews came off after 70 minutes with the score at 0-0, being replaced by Gavan Holohan. The away side then went on to score twice through Shaun Whalley and Josh Andrews, leaving Grimsby sat 18th in the fourth tier. 

Winger Rayhaan Tulloch was an unused substitute for Bradford City who won 1-0 at AFC Wimbledon. Emmanuel Osadebe scored the game's only goal. 

Finally, goalkeeper Brad Foster made it two clean sheets from two games at Alvechurch as they won 1-0 at Stamford in the Southern League Central Division. 

Foster's men had two players dismissed in Lincolnshire, but still managed to grab all three points thanks to Adan George's composed finish. 

The victory pushed The Church up to eighth in the standings.
