Alfie McCalmont completed the full game as Oldham defeated Exeter City 2-1 at Boundary Park.

The Leeds loanee struck the winner in the 55th minute with a fine volley which hit the underside of the bar from outside the box before settling in the back of the net.

McCalmont - who had made 27 appearance in League Two this season - bagged his seventh strike of the campaign and made it two goals in his last three outings.

Oldham are currently 17th in the standings.

Robbie Gotts - Salford City

There was no midweek action for Robbie Gotts and Salford City.

The Ammies, though, sacked head coach Richie Wellens on Tuesday and immediately brought new boss Gary Bowyer in.

Gotts has made 13 appearances for City since joining in January, scoring two goals and bagging one assist.

Salford sit ninth in League Two.

Ryan Edmondson - Northampton Town

Ryan Edmondson was an unused substitute in Northampton's 1-0 victory over Oxford United.

With the win Town lifted themselves away from the League One drop zone and now sit 20th in the division.

Edmondson has made 15 appearances since joining the Cobblers in January, scoring once and notching an assist.

Jordan Stevens - Bradford City

Jordan Stevens was an 89th minute substitute for Bradford in a 2-0 defeat to Scunthorpe United.

It was the 12th time the winger has stepped off the bench for the Bantams since making the move in January, having started just once at Valley Parade.

City are 14th in League Two.

Bryce Hosannah - Bradford City

Leeds full-back Bryce Hosannah is waiting to find out if he will play again for the Bantams this season.

Hosannah has been restricted to just 11 appearances across all competitions this term after suffering a serious hamstring injury in mid-December.

He is yet to feature for City this year.
