A trio of West Ham United loanees were in action for their respective clubs on the weekend.

Modibo Maiga only completed his temporary switch to Queens Park Rangers hours before last Friday night's deadline but it didn't stop the forward from making an instant impact for his new club.

The Mali international replaced Andy Johnson after 68 minutes and was celebrating his first goal for the R's eleven minutes later as he scored the equaliser to earn the west Londoners a 3-3 draw against Burnley.

Jordan Spence was also in action on Saturday, having re-joined MK Dons on loan for the rest of the season, but the defender was unable to prevent the Dons from falling to a 1-0 defeat.

Spence played 90 minutes as Tranmere Rovers scored in the dying minutes of the match to condemn the centre-back's side to defeat in Sky Bet League One.

On Sunday, Paul McCallum made his debut for Heart of Midlothian as they endured semi-final heartache in the Scottish League Cup.

The Jam Tarts lost out on penalties to Inverness Caledonian Thistle with McCallum appearing from the bench after 64 minutes.

George Moncur has also moved north of the border on loan to Partick Thistle, but was an unused substitute as they drew 1-1 with Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership.

Blair Turgott is also on a youth loan at Rotherham United but was not selected as they beat Leyton Orient 2-1 in Sky Bet League One.
