Luke Burgess - Barrow AFC

19-year-old midfielder Luke Burgess continued his development and enjoyment out on loan at Barrow AFC this weekend by scoring his first National League goal for the club in their 2-1 home victory against Sutton United.

Burgess turned in Dan Jones' cross in the 42nd minute to double Barrow's lead, before being replaced early on in the second half.

The win sees Ian Evatt's side 12th in the league table on 21 points, just five points from the play-off places.

Callum Lang - Oldham Athletic

Whilst Oldham Athletic fell to a 3-1 defeat at home to Carlisle United on Saturday, forward Callum Lang can take positives away from his performance, teeing up Ishmael Miller for the Latics' goal just nine minutes after coming off the bench. The 20-year-old forward was introduced on the hour mark.

The loss leaves Oldham in 12th place in Sky Bet League Two on 17 points, just three from the play-off places.

Max Power - Sunderland

It was an interesting day in Sky Bet League One for Latics' loan players, starting with Max Power who was sent off in Sunderland's 2-1 away victory at Bradford City, his second red card of the season.

The Black Cats claimed their win despite going down to 10 men, seeing them third in the table, four points behind leaders Portsmouth.

Jamie Walker - Peterborough United

After a superb start to the season, Peterborough United suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat at home to Barnsley on Saturday afternoon, with attacking midfielder Jamie Walker unable to make an impact on the game after he was substituted on 27 minutes.

Despite defeat, the Posh remain in second place on 24 points, three behind leaders Portsmouth.

Devante Cole - Burton Albion

Elsewhere in League One, Wycombe Wanderers won 2-1 at home against Devante Cole's Burton Albion, with the striker unable to help his side avoid defeat after coming on as a 66th minute substitute.

The Brewers are 18th in League One on 11 points, just one point above the relegation zone.

Joe Piggott - Morecambe

Development Squad goal-machine Joe Piggott was a stoppage time substitute in Morecambe's 4-3 home defeat to Tranmere Rovers on Saturday, with the Shrimps now 20th in the Sky Bet League Two table on 10 points, two above the drop zone.

Jordan Perrin - FC United of Manchester

After completing his loan move to FC United on Tuesday evening, Development Squad goalkeeper Jordan Perrin made his debut in the FA Cup this Saturday.

The 19-year-old was a half time substitute in a 2-1 defeat to Witton Albion in the third qualifying round.
