LOAN WATCH: Gomis strikes again


14:45 18th April 2017

. . . Bafe bags another for Marseille in key win

It proved a busy Easter period for the Swans players out on loan, with a number of matches over the holiday period.
Bafe Gomis struck his 18th goal of the season as Marseille saw off St Etienne 4-0 in Ligue 1 to boost their hopes of qualifying for the Europa League.
The French striker doubled Marseille's lead after the half-hour mark against his former club, with Gomis taking two touches before volleying home from an acute angle.

In the Championship, it proved a disappointing few days for Kyle Bartley's Leeds United.
Garry Monk's side kicked off the Easter period with a last-gasp 1-1 draw at Newcastle United courtesy of Chris Wood's 95th-minute leveller.
But a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Wolves at Elland Road saw Leeds drop out of the play-off positions on goal difference with three games left to play.

At the other end of the table, Marvin Emnes was in action for Blackburn Rovers as they fight to stay in the division.
After being an unused substitute in the 1-0 win at fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest on Easter Friday, Emnes came off the bench in the 1-1 draw with Bristol City on Monday.
The results over the Easter period leaves Blackburn a point from safety with three games remaining.

There were mixed fortunes for Newport County in League Two as they continue their bid to beat the drop.
They started off with a much-needed victory over Yeovil Town, with Alex Samuel and Liam Shephard going head-to-head.
And Samuel was the one celebrating after the Exiles edged to a 1-0 win.
But the celebrations ended there as Newport were thumped 6-1 by Plymouth, who celebrated promotion, which leaves them one point off third-bottom Hartlepool United.
Shephard, meanwhile, helped Yeovil bounce back from their loss by beating Crewe 3-0.
It was the 22-year-old's 43rd appearance of the season for the Glovers, who are seven points clear of the drop with three games left.
Meanwhile, Franck Tabanou (Granada), Matt Grimes (Leeds), Modou Barrow (Leeds), Josh Vickers (Barnet), Owain Jones (Yeovil) and Tom Holland (Fylde) didn't feature for their clubs.
