Christian Walton in action for Blackburn Rovers.

White and Clarke came head-to-head for their respective loan clubs on Saturday, as Championship league leaders Leeds United shared the spoils with Derby County in a 1-1 draw.

Both players featured for the full 90 minutes, and Clarke would undoubtedly be the happier man after Chris Martin’s last-minute equaliser cancelled out Max Lowe’s own goal.

Elsewhere in the Championship, Christian Walton featured between the sticks in an impressive 2-1 win for Blackburn Rovers away at Reading.

Jayson Molumby played the full 90 minutes of Millwall’s 2-1 defeat at home to Queens Park Rangers, with fellow Albion loanee Jan Mlakar an unused substitute for the visitors.

In League One, fellow Albion shot-stopper Robert Sanchez was in goal for a 2-1 defeat away at Fleetwood Town, and Max Sanders was an unused substitute for AFC Wimbledon in a 3-1 defeat at home to Bristol Rovers. Sanchez will now turn his attention to a mouth-watering Carabao Cup third round tie away at Manchester United tomorrow evening. 

OVERSEAS

George Cox was in action for Fortuna Sittard at the weekend.

Looking at Albion’s players in overseas action, Florin Andone made his debut for Galatasaray in a 1-1 draw with Yeni Malatyaspor in a Turkish Super Lig encounter.

Over in the Dutch Eredivisie, George Cox, came out on the wrong side of a 4-2 defeat for Fortuna Sittard away at Vitesse Arnhem. In the same division, Anders Dreyer was a 78th minute substitute for SC Heerenveen in their 1-1 draw at home to FC Utrecht.

Percy Tau played the entirety of a 2-1 victory for Club Brugge over Anderlecht in the Jupiler Pro League, as a Hendrik van Crombrugge own goal and Krepin Diatta’s strike left the hosts second in the table.

Leo Ostigard played 82 minutes of FC St. Pauli’s 1-1 draw away at Vfl Osnabruck on Sunday, as Ryo Miyaichi's strike cancelled out Kevin Wolze’s opener to give the visitors a share of the spoils.

James Tilley played 35 minutes for Yeovil Town in a 1-0 victory away at Solihull Moors in the National League, and will be targeting more game time for the Glovers when they face Aldershot Town tonight.

Last Saturday was an afternoon to forget for Ben Clark-Eden and Bognor Regis Town, who were beaten 6-1 by Dulwich Hamlet in an Emirates FA Cup third qualifying round tie.

It was also a disappointing Saturday for Kacper Lopata, who was on the wrong end of a 2-1 defeat for Whitehawk to Phoenix Sports Club in an Isthmian League encounter.

Roco Rees continued his work experience at Worthing after featuring for the Rebels in a 2-2 draw with St Albans City in a FA Cup third qualifying tie.

Rees could feature again in tonight’s replay, when Adam Hinshelwood’s side welcome the Hertfordshire club to Woodside Road.
