Loan Watch: Dummett Is Star Man

Paul Dummett was man of the match as Gateshead beat Forest Green while Alan Smith, Nile Ranger and Fraser Forster were all in action

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

Paul Dummett helped Gateshead keep another clean sheet and keep their faint play-off hopes alive - while winning the sponsors' man of the match in the process.

The Wales under-21 defender played the whole 90 minutes for the Heed in a 1-0 win over Forest Green on Saturday, a scoreline which put Ian Bogie's men up to eighth in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

It was the fourth shut-out in Dummett's seven appearances for the Tynesiders. His stay was extended until the end of the season after a successful first month at the International Stadium.

MK Dons also kept a clean sheet on Saturday, in a 3-0 win against Scunthorpe, with Alan Smith playing for 73 minutes.

Elsewhere in League One, Sheffield Wednesday drew 1-1 at Colchester with Nile Ranger playing for the first 72 minutes as the Owls failed to win for the first time since the Newcastle striker's arrival in South Yorkshire.

On Sunday, Celtic took on Hearts in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup but Fraser Forster was unable to keep out an extra time penalty from Craig Beattie as the Hoops lost 2-1.

That set up an all Edinburgh final between Hearts and Hibernian, who beat Aberdeen in the other semi-final.
