Loan Review | Mo Faal on target as trio feature in Sky Bet League Two

Mo Faal in action for Walsall wearing their red home shirt

Mo Faal scored for the second weekend running as his current club Walsall defeated his former side Doncaster Rovers 3-1 in Sky Bet League Two.

The towering front man bagged the Saddlers’ third and final strike of the encounter – a goal which helped propel them up to sixth in the standings.

Faal nodded in Taylor Allen’s corner in the 80th minute of the match having come on inside the opening ten minutes of the second period, replacing Josh Gordon.

Gordon’s goal had the hosts 1-0 up at the break, but Doncaster equalised shortly after the hour-mark thanks to Kyle Hurst’s volley.

Jack Earing put Walsall back in front before Faal secured a fifth straight victory in the fourth tier for Mat Sadler’s men.

Elsewhere in League Two, midfielder Jamie Andrews completed the full 90 minutes for Grimsby Town who claimed a massive 1-0 home win over Forest Green Rovers.

Harvey Rodgers’ eighth-minute effort was enough to push Andrews’ team six points above the visitors who occupy one of the relegation places, with Sutton United sat one position behind at the bottom.

Finally, defender Ethan Ingram played the first 45 minutes for Salford City in their 2-0 home defeat to Gillingham.

Ingram was replaced by former Albion academy graduate Callum Morton on an afternoon where goals from Shadrach Ogie and Timothee Dieng were enough to send the visitors back to Kent with the points in the bag.

The defeat leaves Salford 19th in the table, 13 points clear of trouble.
