Loan Round-Up

Cameron Burgess played the full 90 minutes as Vanarama National League leaders Cheltenham Town stepped up their automatic promotion push with a 4-1 victory over struggling Boreham Wood on Good Friday.

Danny Wright scored from the spot after Danny Woodards' foul on Dan Holman, who then put the Robins 2-0 up. Harry Pell was felled by Scott Doe and Wright added a second penalty before Danny Haynes replied from 25 yards.

But Holman's strike in stoppage time sealed the win for Cheltenham who are three points clear at the top.

In Sky Bet League One, Jack Grimmer played the full 90 minutes and Larnell Cole was a second-half substitute as 10-man Shrewsbury Town extended their unbeaten run to nine games with a 1-1 draw at home to Port Vale.

Grimmer was booked early on and promotion-chasing Vale went in front on the hour mark as Louis Dodds headed in off the underside of the bar from six yards.

Cole then entered the fray four minutes later and Shrewsbury levelled on 74 when Sullay Kaikai, on loan from Crystal Palace, cut in from the right and cracked a left-footed shot from 20 yards into the far corner of the net.

Shrewsbury were reduced to 10 men in stoppage time when skipper Nathaniel Knight-Percival was sent off for shoving Dodds but Town remain 17th.

In League Two, Sean Kavanagh was a 77th-minute substitute as Mansfield Town went down to a 1-0 loss away to Wycombe Wanderers.

The Stags were already trailing by the time of Kavanagh’s introduction after a 68th-minute strike by Michael Harriman. The loss sees Town drop to 14th, eight points off the Play-Offs.
