Loan review: Six feature in mixed weekend for Baggies

Jamie Andrews in action for Yeovil Town

Six Albion players were in action across five different tiers of English football on Saturday.

Cedric Kipre completed 90 minutes for Cardiff City in the Sky Bet Championship, but it proved to be disappointing afternoon for the Welsh side as they suffered a narrow 1-0 reverse against Sheffield United. 

George Baldock scored the only goal of the game in the second 45.

Goalkeeper Josh Griffiths played another full match for Portsmouth in Sky Bet League One.

The promising youngster was between the sticks at the Mazuma Stadium where Pompey drew 1-1 with Morecambe. Liam Shaw gave the hosts the lead before the break, but Griffiths’ men equalised in the second period through Colby Bishop.

In Sky Bet League Two, wingers Tom Fellows and Rayhaan Tulloch both came off the bench for their respective sides. 

Fellows came on the 61st minute for Crawley Town, replacing Dom Telford in their 1-0 home victory over Barrow. Ashley Nadesan scored the only goal of the encounter after just six minutes.

Tulloch was introduced to the action with just under 15 minutes remaining as his Rochdale side fell to a 1-0 home defeat against Mansfield at Spotland. 

Tulloch replaced James Ball less than ten minutes after George Maris scored for the Stags – a goal which would prove to be the only one of the clash.

Midfielder Jamie Andrews earned more valuable senior minutes down at Yeovil Town in the Vanarama National League. 

Albion’s PL2 captain completed the whole game for the Glovers as they won 3-1 at home to Gateshead. Will Harris gave the visitors the advantage, but Yeovil hit back and scored three times through Alex Fisher (2) and Malachi Linton.

Lastly, striker Mo Faal was used as a very late sub for AFC Telford United who lost 1-0 at home to Hereford in the Vanarama National League North.

The Baggies teenager replaced Adam Senior a minute from the end in a game which was settled by Hereford’s Ryan McLean.
