Andreu on the scoresheet, Toffolo sees red, Grant debuts

FOUR Norwich City players featured for their loan clubs over the weekend.

In Scotland, Tony Andreu hit his 14th goal of the season for Dundee United as they booked their place in the final of the Irn Bru Challenge Cup.

Andreu's side stormed to a 3-0 first half lead against Queen of the South, with the French forward following up earlier strikes from Charlie Telfer and Scott Fraser.

Ray McKinnon's team held off a second half comeback, winning 3-2 and setting up a final against St Mirren who beat The New Saints on Sunday.

Following his midweek penalty-saving exploits, Remi Matthews had to be content with a place among the substitutes to watch Hamilton Academical slip to a 2-0 Scottish Premiership defeat at Partick Thistle.

It was an eventful Saturday for the Canaries' two players in Sky Bet League One.

Harry Toffolo was sent-off for the first time in his career but his Scunthorpe United side fought for a point from their top-of-the-table meeting with Sheffield United.

The main action was contained in a four-minute spell at the beginning of the second half; firstly, Paddy Madden tapped the Iron ahead before Billy Sharp brought the hosts level almost instantly.

Full-back Toffolo was then shown a second yellow card on 51 minutes but the Blades failed to take advantage and both teams had to settle for a point.

Declan Rudd was involved in a six-goal thriller as Charlton Athletic earned a draw against Rochdale at Spotland.

Niall Canavan capitalised on a spill from Rudd to put Rochdale ahead after just four minutes but the Addicks were level at half-time thanks to Jordan Botaka.

The two sides traded blows in the second half, sharing four goals in the final 23 minutes of the match, Charlton extending their winless run to four games. 

In the Vanarama National League, Ray Grant made his debut for Dagenham and Redbridge after joining on a three-month youth loan last week.

Grant played the first half but the Daggers fell to a disappointing 2-1 home loss to struggling Guiseley at Victoria Park.

Finally, Carlton Morris is yet to make his first appearance for Rotherham United after completing a deadline day move due to currently being sidelined with a minor hamstring issue.
