Loan watch: Britton's brace secures cup progress

Striker Louis Britton continued his fine form with two goals to send Yate Town through to the next round of the FA Trophy.

They came at the expense of Braintree, who had taken a first-half lead with Britton also hitting the post.

But the comeback was on when Bradley Webb was fouled for a penalty and Britton (pictured) dispatched his spot-kick to even the contest, before he slotted home his second of the day, capitalising on a defensive mistake.

Matty Taylor was in similar form with two goals for Oxford United, who thumped Southend United 4-0 on the road. Taylor scored the first after only 53 seconds, pouncing on a Shrimpers defensive error, before adding the U's third in the 84th minute.

United now sit sixth in League One.

Winger Jonny Smith picked up three points in Oldham Athletic's 1-0 win over Newport County, who introduced George Nurse from the bench in the second half.

Goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott played the full 90 minutes in Forest Green Rovers' 4-2 win away to Leyton Orient.

Liam Walsh played the full 90 minutes as Coventry drew 1-1 away to Sunderland. while Rory Holden played 75 minutes in Walsall's goalless draw with Stevenage.

However Robbie Cundy and Saikou Janneh would suffer defeat with Torquay United beaten 1-0 to Chorley and Vince Harper's Gloucester City were knocked out of the FA Trophy in a 2-0 defeat to Bradford.
