28 February 2016

Oscar Threlkeld and Conor Wilkinson help sides win as all five Bolton loanees featured for their respective clubs

Oscar Threlkeld and Conor Wilkinson both started as Plymouth Argyle and Newport County tasted victory on Saturday.

Both Sky Beat League Two sides recorded 1-0 victories at home, with the Pilgrims beating Notts County while the Exiles also won against Mansfield Town.

Threlkeld completed 90 minutes for Plymouth as Graham Carey's solitary strike shortly after the restart secured the points.

Meanwhile, Wilkinson completed 82 minutes before coming off injured, with Dean Morgan coming on in his place, as Scott Boden fired home late on to clinch the win.

In Sky Bet League One, Hayden White completed the full 90 minutes for ten-man Blackpool as Kyle Reid's second half strike saw them lose 1-0 at home to Bradford City.

Elsewhere, Rob Hall came on as an 82nd minute substitute for MK Dons as they fell to a stoppage-time defeat away at Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship.

Having seen Samir Carruthers fire Dons into a half-team lead, strikes from Jordi Gomez and Elliott Bennett saw Rovers turn the game around.

Hall came on for Carruthers late on, with Alex Revell equalising for Dons soon after.

However, Gomez's stoppage-time free-kick sealed the points for Blackburn, leaving Dons three points above the drop-zone.

In Italy, Franceso Pisano completed the full 90 minutes as Avellino won 2-1 at home to Livorno.
