Loan Round-Up: Morris fires Shrewsbury to another victory

18 October 2017

There’s no stopping Shrewsbury Town at the moment as they regained top spot in Sky Bet League One with a 4-0 thrashing of Bristol Rovers.

The result extended Shrewsbury’s unbeaten run in the league to 14 matches as they beat mid-table Rovers with consummate ease.

Goals in the first half from City loanee Carlton Morris, Alex Rodman, Jon Nolan and Junior Brown gave Salop are hefty advantage at the break and their opponents never recovered.

Morris featured for 66 minutes with Ben Godfrey playing a key role in the heart of the midfield for the whole match. Ebou Adams was not included in the matchday squad.

Elsewhere in League One, Harry Toffolo continued his run in the Doncaster Rovers starting eleven with another full 90 minutes as they beat Portsmouth 2-1.

Liam Mandeville’s strike and a Christian Burgess own goal saw Rovers storm to a two-goal lead within five games and Pompey consolation goal in the second half wasn’t enough to see them turn the deficit around.

In Sky Bet League Two, Lincoln City moved up to ninth in the league table with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Swindon Town at the County Ground.

Sean Raggett has been vital for the Imps in the early part of the season and he headed home a Jordan Maguire-Drew corner with seven minutes to play to give City all three points.

Lincoln’s local rivals Grimsby Town beat Cheltenham Town 3-2 to move them up to eleventh in League Two with Diallang Jaiyesimi an unused substitute in the win.
