LOAN ROUND-UP: TOFFOLO RETURNS IN POSH THRILLER

2 May 2016

Nine City players in action over the weekend

HARRY Toffolo made his first Peterborough United appearance since March 12 in their incredible 4-3 win over Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.

With 16 minutes left on the clock, Grant McCann's side were 3-0 to the good at Greenhous Meadow but the home side staged a stunning comeback to make it 3-3 heading into stoppage time.

Peterborough had the last laugh, however, as former Shrewsbury man Jon Taylor scored in the final moments to snatch the victory. Toffolo played the full game in Shropshire.

Football is a crazy game.. Good to be back in it and most importantly 3 points and fans were great throughout! Safe trip home! 👍🏼⚽️

Elsewhere in Sky Bet League One, it was a mixed day for Louis Thompson as Swindon Town drew 2-2 at Rochdale.

Thompson scored in first half stoppage time but was then dismissed for a second bookable offence after the break. The hosts come from two goals down to salvage a point at Spotland.

Doncaster Rovers are all but relegated after City loanee goalkeeper Remi Matthews couldn't prevent a 3-1 defeat at Crewe Alexandra.

Matthews made his eighth appearance for Donny, but their inferior goal difference leaves them with virtually no chance of survival in the third tier. Their fate will be sealed if Fleetwood Town get a result against Walsall on Monday.

Jamar Loza came on as a late substitute for Southend United in their 1-0 home reverse to Bradford City, but neither James Maddison nor Jacob Murphy were involved for Coventry City in their 3-1 win over Sheffield United.

Thankyou for all the support we've had @ the Ricoh this season! I've taken away some great memories from there #PUSBpic.twitter.com/R5SDZRemZY

In the Sky Bet Championship, Josh Murphy played 90 minutes for MK Dons away to Ipswich Town on Saturday.

The on-loan winger got an assist but Luke Varney scored Ipswich's third late on, edging the game in their favour at 3-2.

Also in the second tier Sheffield Wednesday booked their play-off spot by seeing off Cardiff City 3-0 at Hillsborough, but Michael Turner was an unused substitute for the Owls.

Kyle Lafferty was another who failed to get any game time at the weekend - the Northern Ireland international didn't come off the bench for Birmingham City in their 2-2 draw with promotion-chasing Middlesbrough on Friday night.

Further down the leagues, Cameron Norman played the last ten minutes for Woking as they beat Eastleigh 2-1 in their Vanarama National League meeting at the Laithwaite Community Stadium.

There was heartache for Ben Killip and Lowestoft Town, however, as they surrendered their Vanarama National League North status on goal difference following a 1-1 home draw with Gloucester City.

In Scotland, Carlton Morris played for Hamilton Academical in their 4-0 defeat at home to Kilmarnock, while further afield Ricky van Wolfswinkel appeared as a second half substitute in Real Betis' 2-0 loss at home to Barcelona.
