Norwich City loanee Diallang Jaiyesimi scored the important second goal of Swindon Town’s 2-1 win at home to Walsall on Saturday.
The victory lifts Town up to third, just inside the automatic promotion places in League Two and only one point adrift of league leaders Forest Green Rovers.
One division higher, Carlton Morris was the pick of the City loanees as he got an assist in Rotherham United’s 3-0 win away to Gillingham on Saturday.
Morris, on as a substitute from the 45th minute, put the ball on a plate for Matt Crooks to score his second goal of the afternoon, sending Rotherham up to tenth and just two points below the play-off spots in League One.
Also competing at the top end of League One are Blackpool, for whom James Husband played 90 minutes in the dramatic 4-3 win at home to Peterborough United on Saturday.
The Seasiders are now eighth in the division, just one point below the play-off places.
Staying in the third tier, Sean Raggett played the full 90 minutes of Portsmouth’s 1-1 draw at home to Oxford United. Pompey were kicking themselves for throwing away the lead but have Raggett to thank for his goal-line clearance on the stroke of half-time.
The south-coast side are now 15th in the league, five points clear of the relegation zone with two games in hand.
Smack bang in the middle of League One are Shrewsbury Town, and Louis Thompson made a cameo appearance for the Blues when he came on to replace Donald Love in the 86th minute of their 1-0 defeat away to league leaders Wycombe Wanderers.
Twelfth in the league, Shrewsbury are eight points above the drop and five behind the play-offs.
Returning to League Two, Mason Bloomfield came on in the 54th minute to replace Ollie Palmer for Crawley Town in their Carabao Cup fourth round defeat at home to Colchester United on Tuesday. Town lost 2-1, knocking them out of the competition.
The standout in non-league among City loanees is Daniel Barden, who kept a clean sheet as his side, Bury Town, remained at the top of the Isthmian League North with a 2-0 win away to Great Wakering Rovers on Saturday.
Fellow goalkeeper Aston Oxborough was between the sticks for Wealdstone FC’s 2-2 draw away to Dorking Wanderers, meanwhile. It was Wealdstone’s first draw of the season, but they’re still top of the league by seven points and with one game in hand on the team below.
The official match report on Wealdstone’s website notes that Oxborough made a ‘sublime save’ on the 72nd minute, preventing his side from tasting defeat in the National League South.
Finally, Anthony Spyrou came on in the 72nd minute to replace Scott Boden in Chesterfield’s 2-2 draw away to Ebbsfleet United. The Spireites remain 18th in the National League as a result, three points above the relegation zone.
