Loan Round-Up: Shrews maintain promotion push

18 December 2017

Shrewsbury Town continued to demonstrate their Sky Bet League One promotion credentials on Saturday with a 1-0 home triumph against Blackpool.

Jon Nolan's goal on 54 minutes proved enough to give Paul Hurst's side all three points, with the hosts scoring from their only shot on target in the contest.

Carlton Morris
played the majority of the match, while Ben Godfrey came off the bench for the final 12 minutes.

Ebou Adams wasn't involved in the matchday squad for Shrewsbury, who remain in second.

Harry Toffolo was also absent for Doncaster Rovers as a late Eoin Doyle goal saw them held to a 1-1 draw at home to Oldham Athletic.

In Sky Bet League Two, Lincoln City consolidated their place in the play-off positions with a 2-0 home win over ten-man Accrington Stanley.

The game was level until the stroke of half-time, when Stanley's Farrend Rawson brought down Matt Green in the box and was given his marching orders.

Green himself stepped up to convert the resultant spot-kick, with Matt Rhead adding a second early in the second half to complete victory.

City's Sean Raggett played the full match, helping The Imps keep back-to-back clean sheets as they moved up to sixth.

Elsewhere, Diallang Jaiyesimi played 79 minutes as Grimsby Town drew 0-0 away to Notts County; a result which keeps them in 11th.

In non-league, Callum Ellesley featured as Cheshunt were beaten 3-1 at AFC Hornchurch while Henry Pollock played all of Norwich United's 4-3 win over Canvey Island - both of those games being Isthmian Football League North Division matches.h
