Loan Round-Up: Godfrey makes Shrews bow

27 August 2017

Ben Godfrey made his Shrewsbury Town debut on Saturday as they drew 1-1 away to Oxford United in Sky Bet League One.

Both goals came in the latter stages, with Gino van Kessel's strike for the hosts cancelled out by Stefan Payne on 83 minutes.

That all came after striker Carlton Morris found himself highly unlucky not to score when his lob bounced off the crossbar and down onto the line without crossing.

Morris and Godfrey played 74 and 83 minutes respectively, with midfielder Ebou Adams an unused substitute for The Shrews.

The result sees Shrewsbury's 100 per cent run in the league come to an end, but they remain unbeaten in third place.

In Sky Bet League Two, Sean Raggett put in a Man of the Match performance as Lincoln City won 4-1 at home to Carlisle United. 

Alex Woodyard opening the scoring on 31 minutes, before doubling Lincoln's advantage just after the hour-mark.

Carlisle's Tom Parkes was dismissed for a second bookable offence when conceding a penalty shortly after, with Matt Rhead stepping up to make it 3-0.

Reggie Lambe pulled a goal back for the visitors, only for substitute Billy Knott to notch a fourth for Danny Cowley's side with three minutes left to play.

In the same division, Diallang Jaiyesimi played the second half of Grimsby Town's 3-2 defeat at home to Wycombe Wanderers.

A tier further down, Louis Ramsay played the full match as Woking were beaten 1-0 at Wrexham in the National League.

James Jennings' close-range effort just before the interval proved the difference, with Woking dropping to 20th.

Further afield, defender Joe Crowe helped Limerick keep a clean sheet as they progressed to the Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup quarter-final with a 1-0 win over Finn Harps.

A second half header from substitute Dave O'Connor settled the contest, sending Crowe's side into the last eight of the competition.

More locally, young City midfielder Henry Pollock recently completed a loan move to Norwich United.

On Saturday he played the full match as United were beaten 5-2 at Brentwood Town in the Isthmian Football League North Division.
