It was a busy weekend for West Ham United's trio of loan stars in the npower Football League, with Stephen Henderson excelling in Ipswich Town's 1-0 Championship victory over Bolton Wanderers.

The young Hammers goalkeeper is in his second loan spell of the season with the Tractor Boys and Saturday's shutout was his second in succession.

Ipswich's three-point haul was a welcome one, as it maintained their four-point advantage over Peterborough United and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the relegation zone, who also both triumphed over the weekend.

Staying in the second tier, Ravel Morrison, who is on a season-long loan at Birmingham City, was involved in a winning effort on Saturday too.

The 20-year-old played the 90 minutes as Lee Clark's Blues won by the only goal at Middlesbrough. The St Andrew's club are safely in mid-table at present, ten points off the play-offs but seven clear of relegation.

In League 2, Paul McCallum's Aldershot Town suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to his former loan outfit AFC Wimbledon. The striker played 45 minutes and has scored one goal in three games since joining the Shots earlier this month.

Over the Channel, Alou Diarra played an hour in Rennes' 1-0 defeat away at Reims in the French Ligue Un.

Mohamed Fofana scored the only goal of the game to leave Rennes tenth in the table, seven points behind the European places.
