Loan round-up

It was another busy weekend for West Ham United's contingent of loan players in England and the Republic of Ireland.

In the Sky Bet Championsip, Ravel Morrison got on the scoresheet for Queens Park Rangers as they thumped Nottingham Forest 5-2 at Loftus Road.

Remarkably the result was still in the balance as the game entered the final ten minutes, but a late three-goal blast from the R's took them to victory.

Saturday was a less successful day for Jack Collison, who came off the bench in Wigan Athletic's FA Cup with Budweiser semi-final with Arsenal, but saw his penalty saved as the Latics bowed out in a shootout.

It has been a great effort from Uwe Rosler's Championship side, who led for a period in the second half thanks to Jordi Gomez's penalty, until Per Mertesacker's 82nd minute leveller forced extra time.

In the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division, Sean Maguire was a used substitute in Sligo Rovers' 1-1 draw with Cork City.

Sligo looked to be en route to all three points when an 88th minute own goal gave them the lead, but an even later equaliser from Cork's Billy Dennehy meant the spoils would be shared.
