  • Loan Round-Up: Luke Burgess scored in the Emirates FA Cup.
  • Barrow AFC beaten 3-2 by Chorley FC despite two-goal lead.
  • Devante Cole, Jamie Walker and Callum Lang all featured in the EFL.

Luke Burgess - Barrow AFC

It didn't end as the perfect Emirates FA Cup fairytale for midfielder Luke Burgess, but it started with a career first competition goal for the 19-year-old who opened the scoring after 17 minutes for Barrow AFC in their 3-2 defeat away at Chorley FC.

Burgess' opener was followed up by Tyler Smith for 2-0 before half time, but the hosts battled back at Victory Park thanks to goals from Matt Challoner, Louis Almond and Marcus Carver to earn the Magpies a spot in the first round.

Devante Cole - Burton Albion

Striker Devante Cole was a second half substitute in Burton Albion's 3-2 victory on the road at Plymouth Argyle.

Cole was introduced in the 75th minute, with the Brewers clinching victory six minutes from time through Kyle McFadzean and his second goal of the game.

The win for Burton puts distance between themselves and the Sky Bet League One drop zone, with Nigel Clough's side 14th on 17 points and now eight points from the play-off places.

Jamie Walker - Peterborough United

Accrington Stanley continued their fine start to the Sky Bet League One season by toppling Peterborough United 1-0 on Saturday afternoon.

Latics midfielder Jamie Walker featured for 12 minutes for the Posh, but the hosts were unable to claim a point and slipped six points behind league leaders Portsmouth.

Peterborough remain in the top two by one point above Sunderland.

Callum Lang - Oldham Athletic

Development Squad forward Callum Lang featured for the full 90 minutes in Oldham Athletic's 1-0 home defeat to Port Vale in Sky Bet League Two.

Tom Pope's penalty settled the contest, leaving the Latics 15th on 17 points, five behind the play-off places.

Joe Piggott - Morecambe FC

Striker Joe Piggott was an unused substitute in Morecambe FC's 1-0 home defeat to Colchester United.

The Shrimps fell foul to a Courtney Senior goal and are now just four points clear of the relegation zone in 18th place in Sky Bet League Two.

Jordan Perrin - FC United of Manchester

Goalkeeper Jordan Perrin was an unused substitute as FC United lifted themselves off the bottom of the National League North table with a shock 2-1 victory away at second place Kidderminster Harriers.

The win sees them into 21st place above Southport and just one point from the safety mark.
