Loan round-up: Morton scores, Griffiths records another shutout

Morton Lincoln

Callum Morton was on target for Lincoln City as the Imps held fellow Sky Bet League One promotion-chasers Sunderland to a 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light.

Morton’s 63rd minute goal, his second strike this month, cancelled out Callum McFadzean’s first-half opener to keep Lincoln in the hunt for a place in the top two.

The 21-year-old forward completed the whole game in the north east, as did stopper Alex Palmer.

In Sky Bet League Two, goalkeeper Josh Griffiths recorded his 17th clean sheet of the season helping Cheltenham Town to a 2-0 home win over Salford City.

Midfielder Finn Azaz also played an instrumental part in the Robins’ victory, completing 88 minutes before being substituted. 

Griffiths and Azaz remain top of League Two with Cheltenham, sitting four points clear of fourth.

Elsewhere, there was disappointment for Rekeem Harper in the Sky Bet Championship as his Birmingham City side suffered a 3-0 loss at high-flying Watford. 

The midfielder played the whole game at Vicarage Road, with Saturday’s defeat leaving Blues just three points above the drop zone.

And finally, Charlie Austin at Sam Field both featured for QPR who drew 1-1 at Reading.
