Loan Round-Up: Boateng Reaches Play-Offs

3 May 2016

Hiram Boateng helped Plymouth Argyle clinch a play-off place in League Two courtesy of a 2-2 draw with Cambridge United last Saturday.

A dramatic end to the game saw the U’s recover from a goal down to lead 2-1 in injury-time, however a late equaliser for the Pilgrims by Graham Carey saw them seat their place in the top six and a semi-final against Portsmouth later this month, who beat Hartlepool United 2-0 with Jake Gray appearing from the bench for the Pools. The winners of that tie will play Bristol Rovers or AFC Wimbledon in the final. 

There was also joy for Sullay Kaikai’s Shrewsbury Town who were involved in a seven goal thriller on Saturday which saw them battle back from 3-0 to draw level against Peterborough United, however that pain was followed by the joy of finding out they were mathematically safe from relegation with results elsewhere going their way.

Kaikai played the full 90 minutes in the topsy-turvy encounter at the Greenhous Meadow, but ultimately his 12 strikes this season have helped the Shrews remain in the third tier, and could play his final game for the club on Sunday at Swindon Town.

Jonny Williams’ loan spell at MK Dons ended with the Welshman unable to prevent them returning to League One after a single season in the Championship, and Jerome Binnom-Williams couldn’t quite push Leyton Orient into the League One play-off spots although he played the final 32 minutes of their 1-0 win against Mansfield Town on Saturday, replacing former Eagle Peter Ramage.

In non-league Corie Andrews’ Margate just survived relegation from the National League South and the Metropolitan Police finished 12th in the Ryman Premier Division partly thanks to Oliver Pain.
