Six Albion players were in action for their respective loan clubs over the weekend across three different divisions.

Striker Jovan Malcolm started for Cheltenham Town in Sky Bet League One, completing 70 minutes of their narrow 1-0 defeat at Exeter City.

The Baggies man was replaced by Aidan Keena in a game which was settled by Caleb Watts’ goal.

Four youngsters featured in Sky Bet League Two, including defender Ethan Ingram, midfielder Jamie Andrews and forwards Rayhaan Tulloch and Mo Faal.

Mo Faal was involved once again for Doncaster Rovers

Ingram was first up on Friday night, playing the whole game for Salford City who suffered a 2-0 setback at home to Notts County. David McGoldrick opened the scoring in the first half and Dan Crowley added a second after the break.

Faal also started for his side Doncaster in their dramatic 2-1 win away at Forest Green Rovers.

The towering front man played 65 minutes before being swapped for Louie Marsh. Harrison Biggins had given the visitors the lead but the hosts hit back and equalised six minutes from time. However, Doncaster secured their first league win of the new term in the 96th minute courtesy of Ben Close’s goal.

Fellow forward Tulloch came off the bench and completed the final 15 minutes for Bradford City who drew 1-1 at home to Harrogate Town.

The 22-year-old replaced Bobby Pointon at Valley Parade three minutes before James Daly put the away team into the lead. However, the Bantams fought back and earned a draw thanks to Jamie Walker’s stoppage-time leveller.

Andrews was also introduced to the action late on this weekend, replacing Arthur Gnahoua in the 84th minute of Grimsby Town’s 3-0 loss at Wrexham.

Ollie Palmer, Will Boyle and Elliott Lee all found the net for the Welsh outfit.

Finally, striker Karlan Grant helped Cardiff City claim three Sky Bet Championship points in the South Wales derby on Saturday night.

Grant completed the whole game as the Bluebirds ran out 2-0 winners over Swansea City thanks to strikes from Ollie Tanner and Aaron Ramsey.
