All the latest from our three loan players out and about this weekend

1 May 2017

There were celebrations for Manny Onariase and Cheltenham Town on Saturday as they secured their Sky Bet League Two future with a 1-0 win over Hartlepool United. Danny Wright scored the only goal of the game early on in the first-half as Gary Johnson's side held on for the three points at the LCI Rail Stadium. Manny played the 90 minutes for The Robins keeping up his record of playing every minute since joining the club in January. Victory means that Cheltenham move up to 20th and leaves Hartlepool and Newport County to fight out for survival on the final day of the season.

In Germany, Andy Gogia was on target but Dynamo Dresden let a 2-0 lead slip to lose 4-2 to VFL Bochum on Friday night. Niklas Hauptmann opened the scoring for Dynamo after eight minutes and Andy made it 2-0 midway through the half, firing home an unstoppable shot from the edge of the box. That's how it remained until the break but Bochum roared back in the second-half, scoring four unanswered goals through Thomas Eisfeld, Marco Stiepermann, Anthony Losilla, and Gorkem Saglam. Defeat leaves Dynamo fifth ahead of Friday's home game against struggling 1860 Munich.

Jan Holldack played 70 minutes on Friday as SV Wuppertaler fell to another defeat, this time at home to bottom of the table TSG Sprockhövel. The only goal came with five minutes to play as Christian März netted for the visitors. With three games of the season to go, SVW sit 11th ahead of Saturday's trip to Wiedenbrück.
