Wins all-round for loan quartet

JAMES Maddison continues his promising start to life at Aberdeen on Saturday, helping them move up to second place in the Scottish Premiership with a 4-0 win over Ross County. 

The attacking midfielder played the full match as the Dons produced a dominant performance which saw them stretch their run of consecutive victories to five games.

They went in front through Jonny Hayes on 20 minutes, with County's Tom Chow dismissed barely seconds later ahead of Shay Logan extending the lead before the break.

Further goals from Niall McGinn and Jayden Stockley in the second half completed the scoring; Maddison yet to taste defeat since moving north of the border.

In the second tier, Tony Andreu found the net as Dundee United picked up three points courtesy of a 2-0 win away to St Mirren.

Already leading through Scott Fraser's effort in the opening half, Andreu produced a superb chip to double the advantage with little over 15 minutes remaining.

United lost Mark Durnan to a second booking late on but saw the game out, with the gap to Division One leaders Hibernian now cut to three points.

Back in England, Harry Toffolo's Scunthorpe United came from behind to strengthen their grip on top spot of Sky Bet League One with a 2-1 win over MK Dons.

Trailing at the interval to Kieran Agard's strike, substitute Paddy Madden netted twice to turn the game around; Toffolo playing 90 minutes for the Iron.

3 points and still.. ⚽️

Elsewhere in the same division, Declan Rudd kept a clean sheet as Charlton Athletic eased to a 3-0 triumph over Coventry City.

Ricky Holmes, Ademola Lookman and Josh Magennis were on target, with Rudd crucially making a superb double-save early in the second half while the score was 1-0.

The final City player currently away from Carrow Road on loan is fellow goalkeeper Remi Matthews, who is currently sidelined with a shoulder injury obtained while representing Hamilton Academical.
