Loan Watch: McCarthy in Checkatrade action

By SFC Media Wed 09 Nov Loan Watch

Jason McCarthy helped Walsall to secure top spot in Northern Group H of the Checkatrade Trophy, as they enjoyed a 1-0 success over Leicester City on Tuesday.

Amadou Bakayoko netted the only goal, and his fifth in three Checkatrade Trophy fixtures, when he converted from McCarthy’s low cross just after the hour mark.

The Saddlers are now guaranteed a home draw in the next round of the competition after winning all three of their group games.

McCarthy completed the full 90 minutes of the fixture, ahead of a trip to Milton Keynes Dons on Saturday in League One.
