Loan Watch: Loan trio star in weekend action

Jack Diamond played his part in continuing Lincoln City’s recent strong form in League One after just one defeat in six games.

The 23-year-old played 77 minutes but helped the Imps to a 3-0 victory over Accrington Stanley.

He teed up Teddy Bishop from a dead ball to rattle home a bending shot into the bottom corner to score the third and get all three points.

Since Shrewsbury Town’s defeat to Sunderland in the Emirates FA Cup, they have won every competitive game with Carl Winchester becoming an integral part of the side.

Winchester played just under an hour of the game against Oxford United at the weekend but Ryan Bowman scored in the 74th minute to hand them a 1-0 win at the Kassam Stadium.

Leon Dajaku made his first start for St Gallen in the Swiss League and helped his new side to a 3-0 win over Servette.

The German helped himself to an assist when his cross found it’s way to Lukas Gortler who prodded home into an empty.

Jay Matete helped himself to another man of the match award as he continued his fine form in a Plymouth Argyle shirt but his performance fell in vain as they lost to Sheffield Wednesday.

In a top of the table clash in League One, Argyle relinquished their position as league leaders with Wednesday overtaking them in the table thanks to a 1-0 victory at Hillsborough.

Rotherham United halted promotion bound Sheffield United in their tracks with a 0-0 draw in South Yorkshire but Bailey Wright’s debut was cut short.

After being brought on as a second-half substitute, the Australian was forced off after suffering concussion.
