20 January 2018

Catch up with Latics' players out on loan across the EFL and National League.

  • Luke Burke and Sam Stubbs involved in AFC Fylde's 6-0 win against Macclesfield Town.
  • Owen Evans and Terell Thomas help Sutton United close the gap at the top of the National League.
  • Andy Kellett helps Chesterfield to late 2-1 win against Yeovil Town in League Two.

Catch up with Latics' players on loan in the EFL and National League, as four featured in non-league victories, with Andy Kellett the only other player in action in League Two.

LUKE BURKE AND SAM STUBBS

Latics' young defenders kept their end of the bargain against National League leaders Macclesfield Town by keeping a clean sheet, and those up top also shone, shocking the Silkmen by scoring SIX as AFC Fylde ran riot at Mill Farm.

The Coasters' 6-0 victory means they are now just two points from the play-off places in ninth position and still with a game in hand.

Burke and Stubbs both featured for 90 minutes.

OWEN EVANS AND TERELL THOMAS

Fylde's thrashing of Macclesfield did Sutton United a huge favour in the race for league football come the end of the season, as the Yellows closed the gap on the league leaders with a 2-1 win at home to Dagenham and Redbridge.

Goalkeeper Evans and defender Thomas both featured for the full 90 minutes in a victory which closed the gap to just three points between Sutton in third and Macclesfield in first.

Both players featured for the full 90 minutes.

ANDY KELLETT

Chesterfield's battle to remain in the EFL was given a 93rd minute boost against Yeovil Town, with Kristian Dennis netting late on to earn a 2-1 victory at Huish Park.

Kellett was introduced as a 58th minutes substitute, as the Spireites kept themselves one point above Forest Green Rovers who occupy the final relegation spot.

ELSEWHERE

Callum Lang missed out on Morecambe's clash with League Two leaders Luton Town due to a knock he picked up against Stevenage the Saturday previous, with the Shrimps edged out of a close contest 1-0.

Josh Laurent was an unused substitute as Bury won for the first time since the end of November, a 2-1 triumph away at Oxford United moving them to within two points of 23rd place Rochdale, yet still 11 points away from safety in League One.

Donervon Daniels and Rochdale didn't feature in the League One fixtures this weekend, with their game against fellow survival battlers Southend United postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
