Loan Watch: Victories for McCarthy and Gape

By SFC Media Mon 03 Oct Loan Watch

Jason McCarthy played the full 90 minutes and helped Walsall to a 2-1 victory over Millwall in Sky Bet League One.

Simeon Jackson finished Franck Moussa’s knock down to give the Saddlers the lead, before Fred Onyedinma levelled the scores six minutes later.

But Moussa registered his first Walsall goal to seal the victory just after the interval and give Jon Whitney’s a third win of the campaign.

In the Championship, Sam Gallagher replaced Danny Graham on 55 minutes, but was unable to prevent a 1-0 defeat to Birmingham City at St Andrew’s.

A close encounter was settled when Stephen Gleeson swept home David Cotterill’s cut back just after the hour mark.

Dominic Gape was also in action for his loan club Wycombe Wanderers as he played the duration of their 1-0 home win over Exeter City.

The result meant a third successive home win for Gareth Ainsworth’s men after Gape netted his first senior goal in their 5-1 triumph over Crewe Alexandra in midweek.

Adebayo Akinfenwa was the match winner on this occasion as he took in Anthony Stewart’s cross before firing past Bobby Olejnik in the 85th minute.
