Loan watch

Andros Townsend experienced the highs and lows of football in the space of 15 minutes at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The flying winger was heavily involved in the move that led to Carlos Edwards putting his loan side Ipswich Town 2-0 up in the second half of the Championship encounter at Selhurst Park.

Unfortunately, Andros was then sent off for a high challenge on Palace goalkeeper Julius Speroni.

Palace had already seen a man red carded as well so it ended 10 against 10 and Roy Keane's men held on for a 2-1 victory.

Jon Obika, on loan at Palace, came on for his debut as a substitute in the 75th minute.

Ryan Mason felt the full force of the Craig Bellamy factor as his loan team Doncaster travelled to Cardiff City in the Championship on Saturday.

It was the Wales international's debut for his home-town team and he certainly lived-up to the hype of his loan move from Manchester City, setting up a goal before scoring a spectacular free-kick in Cardiff's 4-0 win. Ryan was substituted on the hour with the score at 1-0.

Staying in the Championship, Jon Bostock played 69 minutes as Hull drew 0-0 against Watford at the KC Stadium.

David Button and Dean Parrett both played 90 minutes for Plymouth but suffered a 2-1 defeat at Walsall in League One.

Midfielder Dean was involved in some key moments. His pass set-up Rory Patterson for a one-on-one in the first half - the chance missed - and he helped set-up a goal that was disallowed in the second half.

In League Two, Oscar Jansson twice denied Ryan Lowe in the first half as his loan team Northampton led at Bury before the home side finally broke through in the second half. It stayed 1-1 at Gigg Lane.
