Tarashaj Nets First Frankfurt Goal

Shani Tarashaj scored the first goal of his loan spell with Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday evening.

The Swiss forward netted on the hour mark in their 3-0 victory away at Hamburg.

Tarashaj rounded off a team move, as Frankfurt emerged from the weekend Bundesliga fixtures sitting in seventh position in the league standings.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Russell Griffiths was in fine form for Cheltenham Town over the weekend as he helped the Robins earn a hard-fought 1-0 win away at Grimsby Town.

The Mariners had six shots on target but could not find a way past the 20-year-old stopper.

The three points moved Cheltenham up to 16th in the League Two table.

Conor Grant was the only other Everton loanee who was involved in match action over the weekend.

The midfielder played 90 minutes for Ipswich Town in their 3-0 defeat to Newcastle United - his seventh appearance of his loan spell with the Championship side.

Also in the second tier, Luke Garbutt and Aiden McGeady were not involved in Wigan Athletic and Preston North End’s fixtures on Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Brendan Galloway was an unused substitute as West Bromwich Albion were beaten 2-1 at Liverpool.
