Seven Albion players featured for their loan clubs over the weekend, with six playing 90 minutes, five claiming wins and one even saving a penalty.

But it was a particularly memorable match for Mo Faal, who netted a brace as table-topping AFC Fylde overcame Peterborough Sports 0-2 on Saturday afternoon.

The striker scored in the 76th and 94th minutes to earn the Coasters all three National League North points and keep them at the summit.

Meanwhile, in the same division, Ted Cann was on hand to save a penalty during Leamington’s important 2-1 triumph over Darlington.

The shot-stopper’s first-half heroics turned out to be crucial as his team came from behind to score two late goals via Kelsey Mooney and Jack Lane.

In the Sky Bet Championship there was a victory for Cedric Kipre, who helped Cardiff City claim a clean sheet in their 1-0 success against Reading – former Baggie Romaine Sawyers scoring the only goal of the game in South Wales.

Elsewhere in the second tier Alex Mowatt came on in the 88th minute of Middlesbrough’s 3-1 win against QPR, continuing their eye-catching form under Michael Carrick.

One division down, Zac Ashworth completed a full match for Burton as the Brewers saw off Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium.

Despite going behind to Josh Marquis’ effort, they roared back and earned the Sky Bet League One spoils through Charlie Kirk and Sam Winnall strikes.

However, there was no such luck for Caleb Taylor as he endured a difficult afternoon with Cheltenham Town. They were overturned 0-4 by Barnsley on Saturday, yet do have a Papa John’s Trophy semi-final against Plymouth to look forward to on Tuesday night.

And, finally, Tom Fellows gained another 90 minutes under his belt in Crawley colours, but they were defeated 1-0 at Sky Bet League Two leaders Leyton Orient.
