LOAN WATCH: McCarthy picks up win on Good Friday

By SFC Media Sat 26 Mar Club

There was only one Saints loanee who enjoyed success on Good Friday, as Jason McCarthy’s Wycombe Wanderers secured a narrow win over Mansfield Town to move into the League 2 play-off places.

McCarthy lined up at right-back against the Stags, and helped played his part in ensuring Gareth Ainsworth’s side picked up a fourth clean sheet in a row at Adams Park.

The only goal of the game came with just over 20 minutes remaining, as Michael Harriman curled home excellent after neat footwork in the build-up to creating the shooting opportunity, to lift the Chairboys to seventh.

In League 1, Jordan Turnbull and Swindon Town were beaten 4-1 by automatic promotion-chasing Wigan Athletic at the County Ground.

Will Grigg opened the scoring in the 15th minute for the Latics, before three goals straight after half time put the visitors in a four-goal lead.

Max Power, Grigg and Sam Morsy got the goals just after the break, before Nicky Ajose scored nothing more than a consolation for the Robins, who had Nathan Thompson sent off late on.

Elsewhere in League 1, Sam McQueen came off the bench as Southend United lost 4-1 to Rochdale, despite taking an early lead through Jack Payne.

Grant Holt, Joe Rafferty and Jamie Allen scored to put the hosts 3-1 up at Spotland, before McQueen was introduced just after the hour mark.

The Saints winger couldn’t spark a comeback for Phil Brown’s side, who conceded a fourth when Joe Bunney tapped home in stoppage time.

Lloyd Isgrove and Jack Stephens were both not involved for their respective loan clubs due to international commitments. Isgrove’s Barnsley drew 0-0 at home to Scunthorpe United, while Stephens’ Coventry lost 3-1 to Peterborough United.
