By SFC Media Wed 05 Oct Loan Watch

Jason McCarthy enjoyed another success with Walsall as they defeated Sheffield United in the Checkatrade Trophy at Bramall Lane.

The young centre-back played the full 90 minutes as Jon Whitney’s men secured their place in the second round of the competition.

Scott Laird opened the scoring after 16 minutes, before Amadou Bakayoko doubled the advantage with 66 minutes on the clock.

Paul Coutts pulled one back for the Blades but Walsall stood firm to secure back-to-back wins after their 2-1 win over Milwall at the weekend.

They are top of Northern Group H with six points having beaten Grimsby in the first round of fixtures.
