Marcus Browne was also on winning side for his loan club at the weekend, providing an assist for Jerome Sinclair’s goal as Oxford United continued their rise up EFL League One with a 2-1 home win over Wycombe Wanderers.

Josh Cullen helped Charlton Athletic remain on course for the League One Play-Offs with a 1-0 win over another of his former loan clubs, Bradford City.

Managed by former West Ham midfielder Lee Bowyer, Charlton are fifth in the table, nine points adrift of Barnsley in the second automatic promotion place but also 12 points clear of Peterborough United in seventh.
