Loan Round-Up

13 February 2020

There were several Barnsley loanees in action over the past few days, here we take a look at how they got on at their temporary homes.

We’ll start in the Sky Bet Championship with Mallik Wilks, who opened his account for Hull City at the weekend. The forward came from the bench with 20 minutes remaining to rescue a point for Grant McCann’s side at the Madjeski Stadium.

However, despite starting against Blackburn Rovers in midweek, Wilks was replaced with the score at 0-0 before the Tigers went onto lose 3-0.

In League One, Cameron McGeehan played the full 90 minutes on Saturday as Portsmouth claimed a 2-0 victory at Tranmere Rovers. But the Fratton Park outfit saw their fine run of form ended by play-off rivals Coventry City on Tuesday evening, with McGeehan again featuring for the duration in a 1-0 defeat.

Dropping down into the third tier and Victor Adeboyejo was up against two Reds’ teammates when he faced Newport County and Scunthorpe United.

The striker received a standing ovation from the travelling Cambridge United supporters when he was replaced in the 81st minute in a 1-0 win over the Exiles. Jordan Green was unable to prevent his side from slipping to defeat, despite playing the full game.

And on Tuesday evening, Adeboyejo was up against George Miller’s Iron side with both coming from the bench after the interval as Cambridge secured a 2-0 win at Glanford Park.

Prior to that, Miller had featured as a late substitute in a 1-0 victory over Cheltenham Town, while Green featured for 77 minutes as Newport drew 0-0 with Walsall in midweek.

In the Vanarama National League, Chris Sang was named as Guiseley AFC’s Man of the Match as the Lions suffered a 2-1 defeat against AFC Telford.

Jake Greatorex made his Matlock Town debut on Wednesday evening in a 2-1 victory over Worksop Town in the Integro League Cup quarter-final, after joining on a 28-day loan.

Finally, north of the border, Toby Sibbick didn’t feature for Heart of Midlothian as Daniel Stendel’s side beat Falkirk 1-0 in the Scottish Cup fifth round before being thumped 5-0 by champions and table-toppers Celtic in midweek.
