MIDWEEK LOAN REPORT: WHITEHEAD FEATURES AS CHELTENHAM REMAIN UNBEATEN

18 August 2016

Three feature in mixed midweek results.

  • Midweek loan report from Latics' players out on loan across the EFL.
  • Whitehead, Mckay and Odelusi all feature for Cheltenham, Oldham and Rochdale.
  • Taylor unused sub for Bolton, no fixture for Evans at Rhyl FC

CARLISLE UNITED 1 CHELTENHAM TOWN 1 - DANNY WHITEHEAD

Midfielder Danny Whitehead had the most successful midweek action of Latics' players across the EFL, featuring for the full 90 minutes in Cheltenham Town's 1-1 away draw against Carlisle United.

The Robins remain unbeaten on their return to the EFL, but they're yet to pick up a league victory since their National League title win in 2015/16, having drawn all three of their opening Sky Bet League Two fixtures.

Harry Pell's 57th minute goal almost had it sealed for the away side, but with a minute of the 90 remaining, Jason Kennedy struck a late equaliser for the Cumbrians.

Cheltenham sit 17th in the League Two table.

OLDHAM ATHLETIC 0 NORTHAMPTON TOWN 0 - BILLY MCKAY

Striker Billy Mckay is yet to score for Oldham Athletic since his loan move in the summer, but the former Inverness CT man did feature again for another 90 minutes on Tuesday night as his former side Northampton Town played out a 0-0 draw at SportsDirect.com Park.

The Latics move up to 19th place with the extra point, but remain winless so far in Sky Bet League One.

PORT VALE 1 ROCHDALE 0 - SANMI ODELUSI

Our final piece of action on Tuesday evening saw Sanmi Odelusi used as a second half substitute in Rochdale's narrow 1-0 away defeat at Port Vale.

Dale fell behind to a Nathan Smith goal in the 52nd minute, with Odelusi introduced just nine minutes later, but to no avail as the Valiants held onto their lead.

Rochdale's defeat sees them still without a win in the opening three matches, and 20th in League One, a place lower than local rivals Oldham.

BRISTOL ROVERS 1 BOLTON WANDERERS 2 - ANDREW TAYLOR

Defender Andrew Taylor was an unused substitute as Bolton Wanderers made it three wins from three following their relegation to League One with a 2-1 victory away at Bristol Rovers.

Josh Vela and Jay Spearing both struck in the first half to give the Trotters a seemingly comfortable lead, but Ellis Harrison's 57th minute effort made things a little more uncomfortable for the remainder of the evening.

Bolton now lead the League One table and are the only team in the EFL to have won all three of their opening fixtures.
