The latest from City's loan exports

DECLAN Rudd rounded off the regular Sky Bet League One season in perfect fashion by keeping a clean sheet in Charlton Athletic's 3-0 victory over Swindon Town on Sunday.

Josh Magennis and Jake Forster-Caskey netted in the first half at The Valley, ahead of Ricky Holmes adding a third on 66 minutes to secure Charlton a 13th place finish.

Elsewhere in the division, Harry Toffolo was an unused substitute as Scunthorpe United beat Coventry City 3-1 to earn a sixth consecutive league win.

The Iron had trailed at the break to Vladimir Gadzhev's deflected effort, but hit back in the second period as goals from Kevin van Veen and Neal Bishop turned the game around.

Substitute Hakeeb Adelakun completed the scoring in the final minute of normal timing, ensuring United ended the regular season in third ahead of a play-off semi-final meeting with Millwall.

In the Sky Bet Championship, Carlton Morris came on as a 73rd minute substitute during Rotherham United's 1-1 draw away to Preston on Saturday.

All the scoring came before Morris' introduction, with United's early lead courtesy of Richard Smallwood cancelled out by Stevie May before the break.

Over the border, Remi Matthews played the full match in goal as Hamilton Academical went down to a 2-0 home defeat to Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership.

Both goals came inside the opening 25 minutes, with Conor Sammon and Jordan Jones on target to leave Accies level on points with second-bottom Motherwell after 34 games.

A tier further down, Tony Andreu was on the scoresheet as Dundee United played out a 2-2 draw at home to Dumbarton in the Scottish Championship.

Andreu broke the deadlock with a header midway through the first half, ahead of Robbie Thomson levelling on 35 minutes.

Dumbarton then went in front on 65 minutes when Lewis Vaughan's net finish made it 2-1, with Thomas Mikkelsen's tap-in ultimately ensuring a share of the spoils.
