Five of our players were in action for their respective loan clubs this weekend - but how did they perform? Read on to find out:

Joe Willock scored his seventh goal in seven games on Sunday afternoon, notching after just 23 minutes in Newcastle's 2-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Our young midfielder drove at the heart of Scott Parker's defence before unleashing a low shot in the bottom left-hand corner to open the scoring.

Willock now joins Alan Shearer as one of only two players in Newcastle's history to score in seven consecutive Premier League matches.

William Saliba was also on the scoresheet this weekend, heading home the winner for Nice in their 3-2 victory over Lyon. Having trailed 2-1 at halftime, Saliba snuck in at the back post to covert Amine Gouiri's free-kick and complete an impressive comeback for the visitors.

Daniel Ballard was in action, too, playing 45 minutes as Blackpool drew 3-3 with Oxford United in the second leg of the League One play-off semi-finals. The result means Neil Critchley's side progress to the final after winning the first leg 3-0. They will take on Lincoln City at Wembley on Sunday, May 30 for the chance to play Championship football next season.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles played 82 minutes for West Brom as they were beaten 3-1 by Leeds at Elland Road. Rodrigo, Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford all scored for the home side before Hal Robson-Kanu slid home a late consolation.

Finally, Joseph Olowu played the full match as Wealdstone lost 4-1 to Solihull Moors on Saturday. The result leaves Wealdstone 19th in the table after 41 games.
