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, which was against AFC Telford United, below.

Paul Holleran's Leamington side had lost their last five league games heading into Monday afternoon's clash with the Bucks, which saw them sat at the bottom of the table with just three points to their name.

Milan, who has seen his minutes limited since joining the Phillips 66 Community Stadium club earlier this month, once again had to settle for a place on the bench as the Brakes looked to get back to winning ways.

The game started well for the home side as they created a few good goal-scoring opportunities with Callum Gittings, Richard Taundry and Curtis Obeng all having opportunities within the opening fifteen minutes.

Sadly for the Brakes their failure to capitalise on their chances was punished after nineteen minutes of play as Anthony Dwyer pounced on Tony Breeden's sloppy error to give his side the lead,the forward simply couldn't miss the rebound.

Leamington were dealt a further blow just a couple of minutes later as another defensive error, this time from Jamie Hood, allowed Dwyer in to put the ball into the back of the net over a helpless Breeden.

The Brakes were unable to get a goal back before half-time as Telford held on to their comfortable lead, without much danger from their opponents.

After a slow start to the second-half the Brakes did have a couple of opportunities as Junior English saw a free-kick float past everyone in the box before he headed the ball past the post following Taundry's deflected throw-in.

The home side could've been further behind after sixty-five minutes as Breeden pulled off a double save to deny the Bucks who were comfortable in attack, happy to bide their time, though they did cause their opponents plenty of problems winning a succession of corners.

Telford would go on to stretch their lead after seventy-two minutes as,following a scramble in and around the Brakes' box, former Liverpool midfielder Jordan Lussey sent a sweet left-footed strike across the 'keeper and into the back of the net.

Telford could've added to their lead as the game neared full-time, 'keeper Breeden continued to produce the goods between the sticks, often being the only man to stop the Bucks as his defence were unable to cope after another draining afternoon on the backfoot.

Sadly Butterfield was an unused substitute as Holleran opted to make use of other members of his squad as he and his side continue to search for form. The Brakes have lost their last six league games and are firmly at the foot of the table, worrying times for them, even at this early stage of the season.
