LOAN ROUND-UP: ANDREU NETS FOR DUNDEE UNITED

23 April 2017

The latest from City's loan exports

TONY Andreu was on target on Saturday as Dundee United edged their way to a dramatic 3-2 Scottish Championship home win over St Mirren.  

Thomas Mikkelsen fired United into an early lead but saw that effort cancelled out by Gary Mackenzie's header before the break.

Midway through the second half, the hosts were back in front; Andreu scoring from a free-kick awarded within the penalty-area.

The visitors equalised once more through Josh Todd as the clock ticked down, with United snatching victory at the last when Blair Spittal struck.

Back in England, Carlton Morris started for Rotherham United as they ended a run of 17 games without a win by earning a 1-0 home victory over Ipswich Town.

Morris played the opening 70 minutes before being replaced, with United scoring the only goal of the game soon after when City Academy graduate Tom Adeyemi volleyed into the net.

In Sky Bet League One, Declan Rudd was denied a clean sheet for Charlton Athletic by an injury-time Reece Mitchell goal for Chesterfield but emerged victorious nonetheless.

Jake Forster-Caskey opened the scoring for Charlton away to the Spireites on 37 minutes, with their lead extended by Ricky Holmes before the hour-mark.

Kristien Dennis struck the woodwork for Chesterfield, who did eventually pull a goal back in injury-time when Mitchell tucked home having been quickest to a rebound.

There was still time for some extra drama, Forster-Caskey seeing a spot-kick saved at the other end meaning the game ended in a 2-1 triumph for The Addicks who move up to 14th.

In the same division, Harry Toffolo was an unused substitute as Scunthorpe United continued their fine form with a 2-1 win away to Swindon Town.

Goals in either half from Murray Wallace and Sam Mantom put the visitors in firm control, with Rohan Ince netting from distance late on as a consolation for Swindon.

The result means United have now won four on the bounce as they prepare for the play-offs but relegates The Robins - who Toffolo spent the 2014-15 season on loan with - to Sky Bet League Two.
