Four Latics players involved in the weekend's action across the EFL and National League.

  • The latest Latics loan report from the EFL and National League.
  • Callum Lang sets up Morecambe's first goal in a 2-1 victory over Exeter City.
  • Terell Thomas, Andy Kellett and Luke Burke involved for Sutton United, Chesterfield and AFC Fylde.

Catch up with Latics' young stars out on loan across the EFL, National League and Evo-Stik Northern Premier League, as four players featured on Saturday 17 March.

CALLUM LANG - MORECAMBE FC

A 2-1 victory over Exeter City helped Morecambe to ease their relegation troubles on Saturday, with Callum Lang continuing his influential loan spell at the Globe Area, as the 19-year-old set up Sam Lavelle's first goal for the Shrimps, before Michael Rose clinched the three points in the second half.

Lang, who has scored seven goals in 20 appearances, featured for 85 minutes.

The victory has Morecambe 18th in Sky Bet League Two, eight points clear of Chesterfield in 23rd.

ANDY KELLETT - CHESTERFIELD FC

Chesterfield moved off the foot of the League Two table on Saturday thanks to a 1-1 draw away at Cheltenham Town, with Kristian Dennis' goal moving the Spireites into 23rd on 31 points, six behind Grimsby Town.

Andy Kellett featured for the full 90 minutes.

LUKE BURKE - AFC FYLDE

It's been a debut season to remember so far for AFC Fylde in the National League, and the drama of their first campaign at that level continued on Saturday in the form of a 3-3 draw against Hartlepool United.

Devante Rodney cancelled out Dave Challinor's side's good work in second half stoppage time, but the points keeps the Coasters in with an excellent chance of making the play-offs, with the Mill Farm club eighth in the table, four points behind seventh place Dover Athletic.

Luke Burke featured as a second half substitute for Fylde, with Sam Stubbs and Jordan Flores absent from the squad.

TERELL THOMAS - SUTTON UNITED

The National League's top two teams both slipped up at the weekend, with Terell Thomas' Sutton United falling to a 1-0 defeat away at Maidstone United, as Macclesfield Town were unable to take advantage in top spot following a 2-0 defeat to Dover.

It leaves everything wide open in the race for EFL football, with Thomas' Sutton two points behind the Silkmen in second place.

The defender featured for the full 90 minutes on Saturday.

ELSEWHERE

Josh Laurent wasn't involved in the Bury squad as the Shakers fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of MK Dons, leaving Ryan Lowe's side bottom of Sky Bet League One and nine points from safety.

In non-league, Luke Burgess' Chorley FC didn't have a fixture, whilst Chris Merrie wasn't involved in Altrincham's 2-1 defeat to Stalybridge Celtic, having signed on loan for the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League leaders last Thursday.
