7 December 2015

Catch up with Latics' players out on loan.

  • Jennings assist in 3-1 for National League leaders Cheltenham Town.
  • O'Brien on as substitute as Wrexham move into play-off places.
  • Cosgrove, Nicholls, Taylor, Mckay and Huws all feature.

We take a look at how our players out on loan in the Sky Bet Championship, League Two and National League have been progressing over the past seven days, starting with Ryan Jennings at table-toppers Cheltenham Town.

CHELTENHAM TOWN 3 CHESTER 1 - RYAN JENNINGS



Winger Ryan Jennings completed 89 minutes for the Robins on Saturday at home to Chester, assisting the opening goal of the game for Billy Waters in the 18th minute.  Despite an equaliser from Ross Hannah on the stroke of half time, Cheltenham didn't let that worry them, Waters on target with his second of the game on the hour mark, before Danny Wright sealed the result two minutes from time.

Following their 3-1 victory, Cheltenham now sit top of the National League by four points, but second place Forest Green have a game in hand due to their involvement in the FA Cup.

Staying in the National League, Danny O'Brien made his second appearance for Wrexham on Saturday, introduced in the 70th minute away to Torquay United, with the Dragons grabbing the crucial winner eight minutes later thanks to a Mark Carrington goal.

The narrow 1-0 victory moves Wrexham into fifth place, the final play-off spot, on 40 points.

Played on Tuesday evening, Bristol Rovers' home fixture against Wycombe Wanderers was seen out comfortably thanks to a Matty Taylor hat-trick, with goalkeeper Lee Nicholls completing the full 90 minutes and collecting his fifth clean sheet on loan at the Gas.

The comprehensive win sees Nicholls' side into 10th place in Sky Bet League Two, just two points from a play-off position.

BIRMINGHAM CITY 0 HUDDERSFIELD TOWN 2 - EMYR HUWS

Back to Saturday's action with Emyr Huws on the road for Huddersfield Town at Birmingham City.  The Terriers' early Joe Lolley goal set them on their way, with Nahki Wells doubling the lead in the 81st minute to seal a 2-0 victory.

Huws featured for the full 90 minutes, as Huddersfield saw themselves onto 18 points in 19th place in the Sky Bet Championship.

READING 0 QUEENS PARK RANGERS 1 - ANDREW TAYLOR

Staying in the Championship, defender Andrew Taylor completed the full 90 minutes for Reading in their late 1-0 defeat to Queens Park Rangers on Thursday evening.

Nedum Onuoha's 90th minute winner leaves Reading in 11th place.

ROTHERHAM UNITED 1 WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS 2 - GRANT HOLT

Game day 11 months since I done my knee at this ground time to get rid of some demons. Safe trip to all travelling.

Eleven months since sustaining a long-term knee injury at Rotherham United's AESSEAL New York Stadium, striker Grant Holt returned to the ground with Wolverhampton Wanderers.  Holt was an unused substitute in Wolves' 2-1 victory, with James Henry and Danny Batth on target either side of a Joe Newell equaliser.

Wolves now sit 14th in the Championship on 24 points.

CHORLEY FC 2 NORTH FERRIBY UNITED 3 - SAM COSGROVE

It's been a high scoring, but disappointing week for Chorley FC, with a 5-2 defeat in their FA Trophy replay against Skelmersdale on Tuesday night, followed by a 3-2 defeat at Victory Park on Saturday at the hands of North Ferriby United.

Sam Cosgrove earned his first start in the midweek fixture before being substituted, and was introduced in the 68th minute at the weekend.

The Magpies held a 2-0 lead over promotion chasing North Ferriby in Saturday's National League North clash thanks to goals from Josh Hine and Jake Cottrell, but suffered a stoppage time defeat to their opponents from Humberside after a remarkable turn around.

Ryan Kendall pulled North Ferriby back to 2-1, before Liam King equalised in the 89th minute, with Curtis Bateson grabbing his side the winner in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

Chorley now sit 10th in the table, 11 points from the final play-off place, but with three games in hand over fifth place Boston United.

KILMARNOCK 1 DUNDEE UNITED 1 - BILLY McKAY

Billy Mckay scored for the third game in a row and grabbed his seventh of the season this weekend, pulling Dundee United level from the penalty spot in the 24th minute, following Kris Boyd's opener in the fourth minute, and Stuart Findlay's 23rd minute red card.

The away draw at Kilmarnock leaves Dundee United six points a drift at the bottom of the Scottish Premiership with just nine points.
