Tuesday was a busy evening for those Rovers players out on loan.

Again all four away saw match action though only one player ended up on the winning side.

That player was Anthony O'Connor as the Irishman was part of the Burton Albion side who thrashed AFC Wimbledon 6-2 to pick up their first points of the season.

O'Connor played right back for the full game once more as four first half goals set the Brewers on their way then two more made it 6-0 in the second half before Wimbledon grabbed two late consolation goals.

Ryan Edwards and his Rochdale team defended stoutly as they drew 1-1 away at Rochdale, the Spirites' leveller coming in injury time to stop John Coleman's side registering their first win of the campaign.

Edwards again played the full match for 'Dale at centre half.

At Aldershot Myles Anderson came on as s second half substitute but they slipped up at home to Exeter City. Veteran striker Jamie Cureton doing the damage with two goals for Exeter.

Anderson played the last thirty minutes after coming on just before the hour mark.

In League One Jordan Slew started once more for Oldham Athletic but they had to settle for a point in a 1-1 draw with Walsall.

Paul Dickov's side went in front in the first half, but the Saddlers levelled with just over 10 minutes remaining.

Slew played 67 minutes for the home side.
