Loan watch

Jordi Amat was part of another strong Real Betis performance as they won 1-0 at Getafe.

The on-loan Swansea City defender played the full 90 minutes as Betis scored late on to secure a victory which lifts them up to sixth in the La Liga table.

The trip to Getafe saw Amat make his 18th La Liga appearance of the season.

Elsewhere in the Spanish top flight, there was a rare win for bottom-club Malaga over the weekend, against Villarreal, but Swans striker Borja did not make it off the substitutes’ bench.

Roque Mesa, meantime, was not involved in Sevilla’s 2-2 draw with Barcelona.

Back on these shores, Oli McBurnie played the full 90 minutes as struggling Barnsley drew 2-2 with Bristol City.

McBurnie has been a big hit since joining the Tykes on loan, but the draw leaves his team in the Championship’s bottom three.

Jay Fulton was not involved in Wigan’s Easter fixtures, with Latics boss Paul Cook explaining that the Scot’s lack of action proves just how strong competition for places is within his squad.

Wigan were beaten at Portsmouth on Monday, but remain right in the hunt for automatic promotion to the Championship.

Matt Grimes played in both Northampton’s Easter defeats, to Charlton and Peterborough, as he reached 42 appearances for the season.

Grimes will soon be working under a new manager after the Posh defeat – which left the Cobblers without a win in 10 matches – saw Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink lose his job at Sixfields.

Joe Rodon was back in the Cheltenham side for their trip to Exeter, but the young central defender could not save the Robins from a 2-1 defeat.

Elsewhere in League Two, Adam King was not involved Mansfield’s 2-1 loss at Luton, while Tyler Reid was an unused substitute in Newport’s 1-1 draw with Coventry.

Ryan Blair made his third successive start for Falkirk as they beat Brechin 3-0 in the Scottish Championship.

In Ecuador, winger Jefferson Montero was not involved in Emelec’s 1-1 draw with Tecnico Universitario.
