LOAN REPORT: MCKAY AND OLDHAM CLAIM FIRST LEAGUE WIN

23 August 2016

Mckay wins on difficult weekend for Latics loanees.

  • Billy Mckay, Danny Whitehead and Owen Evans feature out on loan.
  • Mckay and Oldham Athletic claim first League One victory of the season.
  • Whitehead and Evans drop to defeats in League Two and the Welsh Premier League.
BURY 0 OLDHAM ATHLETIC 1 - BILLY MCKAY

Billy Mckay featured for 78 minutes as Oldham Athletic claimed their first Sky Bet League One victory of the new season, defeating locals rivals Bury 1-0 at Gigg Lane, courtesy of an own goal from his former team mate and former Latics defender Leon Barnett just 10 minutes into his debut.

The narrow win lifts the Latics up to 13th in the table, leap-frogging the defeated Shakers.

CHELTENHAM TOWN 0 DONCASTER ROVERS 1 - DANNY WHITEHEAD

Danny Whitehead featured for 66 minutes before being substituted in Cheltenham Town's first Sky Bet League Two defeat since returning to the EFL, after John Marquis' goal in the 53rd minute sealed victory for visitors Doncaster Rovers.

Defeat for the Robins drops them to 22nd in League Two without a single victory.

RHYL FC 0 CEFN DRUIDS 3 - OWEN EVANS

Owen Evans and Rhyl FC fell to their first defeat of the season in their opening home match on Saturday, dropping to a 3-0 loss at the hands of newly promoted Cefn Druids.

Evans and his team mates were a goal down in a tight contest, before defender Aaron Simpson was dismissed for a dangerous tackle, making the final 30 minutes an uphill struggle as the visitors built on their lead.

The defeat leaves Rhyl 10th in the Welsh Premier League, above Llandudno FC and Cardiff Metropolitan University who occupy the bottom two places.

BOLTON WANDERERS 2 FLEETWOOD TOWN 1 - ANDREW TAYLOR

Full back Andrew Taylor was an unused substitute for the second consecutive match as Bolton Wanderers collected their fourth Sky Bet League One victory out of four, winning 2-1 at home against Fleetwood Town on Saturday.

The Trotters fell behind to a first half David Ball strike, before Gary Madine and Josh Vela turned the game around to keep Phil Parkinson's side at the top of the league table and two points clear of nearest challengers Scunthorpe United and Bradford City.

ROCHDALE 0 MK DONS 1 - SANMI ODELUSI

Sanmi Odelusi was an unused substitute as Rochdale remained without victory at the weekend, suffering an agonising home defeat after Scott Wootton's 95th minute winner for MK Dons.

The 1-0 defeat sees Rochdale 22nd on goal difference, but level on points with bottom side Sheffield United and 23rd place AFC Wimbledon.
