We may be in the midst of the international break, but several of Manchester United’s on-loan players were still in domestic action over the weekend.

Slovakian goalkeeper Alex Fojticek was on the winning side as Stalybridge Celtic secured a thrilling 3-2 win against Bamber Bridge at Bower Fold.

Strikes from Nathan Valentine and Craig Hobson helped turn the game in the Celts’ favour after Alistair Waddecar’s brace had cancelled out Darius Osei’s early effort.

Nineteen-year-old Fojticek made a vital save to prevent Waddecar securing his hat-trick for Bamber Bridge late on, and the victory moves Stalybridge up to 12th place in the Northern Premier League table.

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was an unused substitute as Tranmere clinched a vital win.

Elsewhere, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson also experienced a good result, albeit from the bench, as Tranmere Rovers defeated Coventry City 1-0 in League One.

Despite the Sky Blues dominating the shots and possession statistics at their temporary St Andrews' home, Corey Blackett-Taylor's 83rd-minute goal secured a vital three points to help the visitors move clear of the relegation places.

AFC Wimbledon had gone level on points with Tranmere after their 4-1 win at Ethan Hamilton’s Southend United on Saturday.

Reds youngster Hamilton played the full 90 in midfield for the League One strugglers, but Marcus Forss’s hat-trick helped the Dons to secure their first away win of the campaign.

In League Two, Morecambe’s winless run continued as they lost 2-1 at home to high-flying Bradford City.

Reds defender George Tanner featured for the whole game at right-back but could not prevent the Bantams running away with all three points, courtesy of goals from Hope Akpan and Aramide Oteh.
