Walsall midfielder Milan Butterfield is currently on loan to Vanarama National League North side Leamington. You can find out how he did in their most recent match, below.

Bermudian Butterfield was named among the substitutes as the Brakes looked to bounce back from last weekend's defeat to Southport, a result which was their second defeat on on the bounce.

As the sides settled into the game both went on to create goal-scoring opportunities as they sought to secure three crucial points. The first-half ended all-square, with little to separate the teams.

20 year-old Butterfield, who made his full debut last weekend, was brought on to the pitch after fifty-seven minutes of play, replaced Rob Thompson-Brown in midfield.

Kidderminster opened the scoring a few minutes after the hour mark as Joe Ironside slotted home from the penalty spot. Emmanuel Sonupe was felled in the area, however the penalty still appeared to be a little generous.

The hosts went on to double their lead late in the second-half as Leamington 'keeper Tony Breedon went up to the other end of the pitch for an injury time corner, his gamble didn't pay-off as Kidderminster broke clear from the flag-kick and Sonupe slammed the ball into the back of an empty net from distance.

Aside for the home side's goals, the second-half was another fairly scrappy forty-five minutes, with chances at something of a premium, although the Harriers clearly edged their opponents thanks to Ironside and Sonupe.

Leamington did have opportunities to level the scores before Kidderminster put the game beyond their reach, especially as the game neared full-time, but were unable to capitalise as they fell to their second defeat on the bounce.

Some more all-important play time for Butterfield as he continues to enjoy his short-term spell with the Brakes.
