We take a look at how our players out on loan fared last Saturday across their respective Football League matches.
Fifth place Reading suffered a 3-0 defeat against Preston North End on Saturday as they continue their push for an end of season play-off place but further disappointment was that Jordon Mutch suffered a suspected groin injury.
The 25 year-old midfielder had to leave the action after just 33 minutes as Reading fell to defeat at Deepdale, the 25-year-old going off injured when the home side was just the one goal ahead.
Even though Jonny Williams made a return from injury in a development game the previous week he didn’t appear in Ipswich’s Championship game at Barnsley as The Town grabbed a share of the points with a last minute equaliser.
Into League One and Keshi Anderson was named on the Northampton Town bench and was called upon as a second half substitute in their away day victory at AFC Wimbledon.
The Town boss, Justin Edinburgh, spoke post-match about the influence that Keshi had on his side taking all three points.
“Keshi has been disappointed of late not to be in the starting XI and I totally understand that. We’ve had good conversations about that in a positive way and what you expect as a manager from that kind of the player is exactly the performance when he came on. He lifted us, he got us going and he got us higher up the pitch and got us playing back in Wimbledon’s half.”
Also on loan at The Sixfields is Hiram Boateng but the midfielder didn’t feature in this game.
Freddie Ladapo had a third minute shot pushed out by Chesterfield goalkeeper, Thorsten Stuckmann, before Tyler Roberts scored from the rebound in Shrewsbury’s 1-1 draw. Ladapo playing for 78 minutes of a game that left Town in 18th position.
Ryan Inniss wasn’t included in Southend’s squad for their 2-0 defeat at Bristol Rovers, a result that left United four points from sixth place in League One.
A further tier down in Football League Two and our featured match saw Luke Croll play an hour of Exeter City’s 2-0 reverse at home to Accrington Stanley. Noor Husin was once again named on the bench for the visitors.
