Loanee round-up

Four of West Ham United's band of loanees were in action for their respective clubs at the weekend.

Frederic Piquionne, Rob Hall, Cristian Montano and George Moncur all turned out in the npower Football League, with the Frenchman taking top billing by scoring for Doncaster Rovers.

The striker put Rovers in front after just four minutes against Birmingham City, only for the Blues to roar back to record a 3-1 Championship success at the Keepmoat Stadium. The defeat leaves Doncaster in deep relegation trouble.

In League One, Hall played for 28 minutes as a second-half substitute but was unable to prevent MK Dons slipping to a 2-1 home defeat by Play-Off rivals Brentford. MK Dons still look good to make the Play-Offs, however, as they sit fifth in the table.

Freddie Sears was an unused substitute for Colchester United in the Essex side's 1-1 draw at Exeter City.

In League Two, Montano was on the pitch for the opening 65 minutes for Oxford United, but the U's saw their own Play-Off hopes dented by a 2-1 home defeat by Morecambe. Oxford are sixth in the table.

Finally, Moncur completed a full 90 minutes for AFC Wimbledon, but the Dons were beaten 2-1 at Accrington. The defeat leaves AFC Wimbledon 15th in the table.

Elsewhere Jordan Spence (Bristol City), Pablo Barrera (Real Zaragoza) and Olly Lee (Gillingham) were not involved, while goalkeepers Peter Kurucz (Rochdale) and Marek Stech (Leyton Orient) are injured.
