Loan Round Up!

5 April 2018

Keeping you updated on how our players out on loan are getting on at their respective temporary homes…

We’ll start in League One where Oxford United and Scunthorpe United went head to head at the Kassam Stadium on Good Friday. Ordinarily, we would have had two players feature in this game, but ALEX MOWATT was suspended for the clash following his red card against Portsmouth on 26 March.

CAMERON MCGEEHAN came on for the last four minutes as the Iron looked to claim all three points, but they were unable to find a winner against a stubborn home backline as the game finished 1-1. 

The result means that Scunthorpe have now slipped out of the play-off places after a nine game winless run, while Oxford drop to 17th just four points above the drop zone. 

In League Two, it was a day to remember for JARED BIRD and Yeovil Town as they thrashed play-off hopefuls Coventry City 6-2 at the Ricoh Arena on Easter Monday. The young midfielder played 77 minutes and was withdrawn with the score at 4-2.

The Glovers now look safe from relegation after climbing to 17th in the table, and can prepare for another campaign in the fourth tier.

Elsewhere in the division, JACOB BROWN played 86 minutes as Chesterfield lost 2-1 against Port Vale at Vale Park. The young striker has impressed while with the Spireites but is yet to get off the mark for his loan club since joining in January, however he's often deployed in a wide role.

Jack Lester’s side are four points from safety but have three games in hand on 22nd place Grimsby Town - who they face at Blundell Park on Saturday afternoon in an old fashioned relegation six-pointer.

In the Vanarama National League, SHAUN TUTON came on as a 62nd minutes substitute for FC Halifax Town as they fell to a 2-0 defeat away to AFC Fylde on Good Friday. That result ended a six game unbeaten run for the Shaymen, who are 17th in the table.
