LOAN REPORT: MCKAY AND ODELUSI ON TARGET IN THE CHECKATRADE TROPHY

5 October 2016

Action packed midweek for Latics' loan players.

  • Billy Mckay and Sanmi Odelusi help Oldham Athletic and Rochdale to Checkatrade Trophy wins.
  • Jack Hendry makes debut for MK Dons in 1-0 win at Peterborough United.
  • Owen Evans saves late penalty to help Rhyl FC to a 1-0 cup victory over Llandudno FC.
  • Ryan Colclough and Andrew Taylor also feature, with Danny Whitehead an unused substitute.
  • Midweek action from Tuesday 4 October 2016.

FLEETWOOD TOWN 0 OLDHAM ATHLETIC 2 - BILLY MCKAY



Northern Ireland striker Billy Mckay netted his second Checkatrade Trophy in as many games on Tuesday evening as he opened the scoring for Oldham Athletic in their 2-0 victory away at Fleetwood Town.

Mckay featured for 77 minutes as the Latics collected their first points in Northern Group D, as Lee Irwin doubled their advantage just six minutes after the opener.

Oldham sit second in the group on three points behind leaders Carlisle United.

ROCHDALE 2 NOTTS COUNTY 1 - SANMI ODELUSI



Sanmi Odelusi featured for the full 90 minutes of Rochdale's 2-1 victory against Notts County in the Checkatrade Trophy and opened his goal scoring account, equalising for his side in the 61st minute, before Steve Davies helped Dale to all three points eight minutes later.

The Spotland side jumped to the top of Northern Group F on five points, one above Sunderland and two above their defeated opponents.

PETERBOROUGH UNITED 0 MK DONS 1 - JACK HENDRY AND RYAN COLCLOUGH



Jack Hendry made a successful debut for MK Dons, helping his side to a clean sheet in their 1-0 away victory over Peterborough United in Southern Group F, as he featured for the full 90 minutes to see MK secure their place in the next stage of the Checkatrade Trophy with one game remaining.

Winger Ryan Colclough made a late appearance from the bench, with Kieran Agard's 40th minute goal enough to earn the three points.

BOLTON WANDERERS 1 BLACKPOOL 0 - ANDREW TAYLOR



Another success story on the evening saw Andrew Taylor feature for the full 90 minutes in Bolton Wanderers 1-0 victory over Blackpool at the Macron Stadium to go level on points with all three of their rivals in Northern Group A.

Sammy Ameobi's fourth minute goal, Bolton's first for five matches in all competitions, was enough to see off the Seasiders and provide a welcome boost to Phil Parkinson's side ahead of their return to Sky Bet League One action away to Swindon Town on Saturday.

CHELTENHAM TOWN 2 EVERTON U21 1 - DANNY WHITEHEAD



Midfielder Danny Whitehead was an unused substitute for the second game running, but it proved a fruitful evening for his Cheltenham Town team mates who came from behind in the final 10 minutes against an Everton side with Premier League experience in the form of Oumar Niasse and for Latics loanee Conor McAleny.

A Calum Kitscha own had the Robins trailing inside the fourth minute, but Billy Waters and substitute Danny Wright turned the game on its head within just a minute of each other in the 82nd and 83rd.

Cheltenham's victory (along with fellow Northern Group A side Bolton) tightens the group up, with Everton top on goal difference above Whitehead's side, Blackpool and Bolton who all have three points.

LLANDUDNO FC 0 RHYL FC 1 - OWEN EVANS

Owen Evans played a crucial role as Rhyl FC progressed to round three of the Nathaniel MG Cup, with the Wales youth international saving a late penalty to hold the Lilywhites' 1-0 lead following a Kristian Pierce penalty in a narrow victory over Llandudno FC.

Penalty awarded to Llandudno Lewis Buckley hits it straight at the keeper
