Keeping up with our loan Rovers...

How have the likes of Ellott Ward, Scott Wharton and Jack Doyle done this weekend?

For the second successive game, Rovers loanee Scott Wharton scored a goal in a victory for his loan side Lincoln City.

In this article, we'll be looking at how each of our loaned out players got on over the weekend, in what was a bit of a mixed bag for our lads who are currently away from Ewood.

As mentioned, it was another week, another 3-1 Lincoln win, and another goal for our very own Scott Wharton. Scott expertly tucked home a left-footed effort in what was a bit of a derby match against Grimsby Town to ensure the Imps remained in the play-off places in League 2.

Fast-forward to 1.05 in the video below to see Scott's excellent finish!

Elsewhere, Elliott Ward played the full 90 minutes as his side MK Dons earned back-to-back wins with a victory over Bury in a relegation six-pointer.

Chuks Aneke scored a penalty in each half to narrowly beat the Shakers, who pulled a late goal back through George Miller. Both sides remain in the bottom four but the vital victory takes Ward's side to within a point of safety.

Continuing in League One, Sam Hart is still awaiting his first start for Rochdale and was an unused substitute in their 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon in another relegation battle.

In the Championship, Cardiff's trip to Derby County was postponed, which meant Liam Feeney was out of action this weekend, but over in Ireland, two Rovers players came face-to-face.

In the red corner was Derry City's Jack Doyle, whilst in the green corner for Bray Wanderers was Aaron Dillon. Both joined their Irish sides in the January transfer window on loan and just a couple of months on, they came head to head.

And it was Jack's Derry who came out on top, with a five-star showing against Dillon's Bray, despite playing with 10 men for the final 35 minutes of the game.

After going a goal up, Derry's Nicky Low saw red, but amazingly, despite the player advantage, Bray shipped another four goals and despite scoring late on ended up losing 5-1 to remain at the bottom of the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division.
