Here we take a look at how Port Vale’s loanees got on at their respective clubs in midweek.
Luke Williams scored the opener for the Iron and Kyle Wootton got the second before former Valiant Tom Pope netted a consolation for the visitors.
The result leaves the Shakers in 15th place in Sky Bet League One, 12 points above the relegation zone and 12 points below the play-off places.
Colin Daniel made his first start for Mansfield Town since his return from injury as the Stags won 3-2 at Exeter.
The forward played the full 90 minutes as a Ryan Tafazolli brace and a Malvind Benning goal sealed the three points at St James Park.
Sam Johnson kept a clean sheet as Halifax drew 0-0 with Eastleigh in the National League.
A point wasn’t enough to see the Shaymen climb out of the relegation zone, though. With two games to go they remain in the bottom four on goal difference.
