With several of our first team and U23s contingency out on loan up and down the country and in Scandinavia, we’ve provided a brief update on how everyone is faring at their current temporary homes.
We’ll begin in Sky Bet League Two, where Jack Aitchison is enjoying a fine start to the season at Forest Green Rovers, who have climbed to the summit and are four points clear after eight games.
The 21-year-old forward has featured 11 times in all competitions under Rob Edwards and found the target in Rovers’ EFL Cup tie with Premier League side Brentford last month. He also has a couple of assists to his name in what is a productive loan spell so far.
Staying in the fourth tier and George Miller has hit the ground running at Walsall with two goals on his home debut in a 3-1 victory over Mansfield Town.
He has made four appearances for Matthew Taylor’s outfit since joining on deadline day and will be hoping to steer the Saddlers clear of the relegation places.
Also in League Two is Luke Thomas, who has missed a couple of games through injury but was back on the bench at the weekend as Bristol Rovers succumbed to a 3-1 home defeat against high-flying Leyton Orient.
The Pirates are currently above the drop zone by virtue of goal difference and have a trip to Walsall to look forward to on Saturday.
Moving up a division to League One, Herbie Kane has featured three times for Oxford United. The U’s have endured an indifferent spell of form lately, but host struggling Gillingham this weekend and will be looking to turn their fortunes around.
Out in Denmark, Patrick Schmidt, Charlie Winfield and Matty Wolfe have all been getting regular game time for Esbjerg fB in the Danish First Division.
After suffering a shaky start to the season, EfB have won back-to-back games against teams around them at the foot of the table and have climbed to seventh. Up next for our trio of loanees and their teammates is a trip to Jammerbugt, who have the worst defensive record in the league, on Sunday.
