Albion loanees were in action over the weekend and here is how they got on.

Haydon Roberts (Rochdale):

The defender came on in the 72nd minute in their 2-0 defeat to Burton.

But Roberts says it has been tough playing against physical strikers.

He said: “I have been kicked from pillar-to-post in quite a few games. I am coming up against 6ft 4in strikers who are going to elbow me for 90 minutes and who want me to react, so you have to be mentally strong.

“When I first came up against players like that, I was questioning myself and wondering if I actually wanted to play.

“In my first game I was marking a striker from a corner and he gave me a dig in the stomach – I didn’t know how I was going to cope, but I have learned to be resilient because I am young and want to get the better.”

Rochdale are in action tonight as they travel to high-flying Hull City.

Taylor Richards (Doncaster):

Richards played 84 minutes for Doncaster in their 2-1 defeat at Ipswich on Saturday.

It was all change for Richards yesterday after manager Darren Moore left to join Championship strugglers Sheffield Wednesday.

Player and womens’ manager Andy Butler has been put in charge until the end of the season.

Butler had taken temporary charge of Rovers in November when Moore was self-isolating after coming into close contact with someone who had tested positive for Covid-19.

Richards will be hoping to help Butler get off to a winning start tonight as they host Portsmouth.

Matt Clarke (Derby):

The centre-back played the full 90 minutes for Derby in their 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest.

He had the tough job of marking former Albion striker Glenn Murray, but Clarke kept him quiet.

That point took them nine points clear of the bottom three.

They are back in action tonight as they travel to Cardiff.

Leo Ostigard (Coventry):

The Norwegian had an afternoon to forget after being sent off in their 1-1 draw at Blackburn.

Ostigard picked up his first yellow card for a foul on Tom Trybull in the 67th minute.

He was then given a second yellow with eight minutes to go for a bad challenge on Adam Armstrong.

His Albion team-mate Viktor Gyokeres came off the bench in the 78th minute.

Ostigard will miss their game against Middlesbrough tonight.

Jayson Molumby (Preston):

Molumby came on in the 90th minute for Preston in their 3-0 win over Huddersfield.

He will be hoping to work his way back into the starting XI tonight as he heads back to the Den for the first time since his loan spell there.

Ryan Longman (AFC Wimbledon):

The striker played 68 minutes before being substituted in their 3-0 defeat to Hull.

Wimbledon are in action tonight when they travel to Shrewsbury.

Maty Ryan (Arsenal):

Ryan was an unused substitute with the Gunners in their 3-1 win over Leicester.

Shane Duffy (Celtic) The 28-year-old was an unused substitute for Celtic in their 1-0 over Aberdeen.

Jan Paul Van Hecke (Heerenveen):

Van Hecke was an unused substitute for Heerenveen in their 4-1 defeat at PEC Zwolle. He will be hoping to work his way back into the starting 11 tomorrow night when they host Ajax in the KNVB Cup.

Jan Mlakar (Maribor):

The striker played the full 90 minutes for Maribor in their 1-1 draw against Olimpija.

Tudor Baluta (Dynamo Kiev):

Baluta was not part of the squad which won 4-1 at FC Lviv on Sunday.

He will be hoping to come back into the squad for their cup game against FC Kolos Kovalivka tomorrow afternoon.

Bernardo (Red Bull Salzburg): 

He has been out injured since January with a knee ligament injury.

Alex Cochrane (St Gilloise):

He is currently out with an ankle injury he suffered in January.
