LOAN WATCH: Fulham striker Trotta lands 10-goal Brentford milestone

Marcello Trotta scored his 10th League One goal of the season for loan club Brentford on the weekend.

The 21-year old Italian striker, in his second loan spell from Fulham, gave the Bees the lead in the 68th minute in his side's eventual 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury Town at Greenhous Meadow.

Brentford were awarded a penalty with just over 20 minutes left and although Trotta's initial effort from the spot was saved by Chris Weale, he was able to fire home the rebound.

However, the Shrews were able to rescue a point when Bolton loanee Tom Eaves rifled home for his side's first goal at home in 10 hours of football.

The draw left Brentford, now unbeaten in 18 league matches, on top of the table ahead of Wolves while Shrewsbury remain in the bottom four.
