LOAN REPORT: ANDY KELLETT STARS AS CHESTERFIELD KEEP LEAGUE TWO SURVIVAL DREAM ALIVE

26 March 2018

The latest round-up of action from Latics' players out on loan in the EFL, National League and Northern Premier League.

  • Loan report: Andy Kellett grabs assist in Chesterfield's 3-1 win against Notts County.
  • Terell Thomas involved as Sutton United go top of the National League.
  • Jordan Flores makes AFC Fylde debut.

Five of Latics' young stars featured in the weekend's EFL and National League action, with Andy Kellett and Terell Thomas the big winners for Chesterfield and Sutton United respectively.

ANDY KELLETT - CHESTERFIELD

It could prove to be a landmark day for Jack Lester's Chesterfield FC, as they downed Notts County 3-1 live in front of the Sky Sports cameras at the Proact Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Andy Kellett featured heavily in an impressive display, first setting up Sid Nelson for the Spireites' opener, before being tripped in the area deep into stoppage time to allow Kristian Dennis to extend Chesterfield's lead to 3-1.

Lester's men are 23rd in Sky Bet League Two, but the victory could be huge come the end of the season, with Chesterfield now three points behind Grimsby Town with two games in hand and survival firmly in their sights.



TERELL THOMAS - SUTTON UNITED

Looking to help Sutton United join Kellett's Chesterfield in League Two for next season is defender Terell Thomas. The 22-year-old featured for the full 90 minutes in a 3-2 victory over Chester FC, which saw Sutton leapfrog Macclesfield Town into top spot in the National League on goal difference.

The Silkmen may have a game in hand, but the U's have certainly put the pressure on, with both sides sitting on 72 points.

CALLUM LANG - MORECAMBE FC

The Shrimps sit seven points above the drop zone heading into the final stages of the 2017-18 League Two season, with another point on the board on Saturday thanks to a 0-0 draw at home against Lincoln City.

Callum Lang featured for 67 minutes at the Globe Arena.

Morecambe are 19th on 41 points, seven clear of second bottom Chesterfield.

JORDAN FLORES AND LUKE BURKE - AFC FYLDE

The Coasters' National League play-off dream took a bump on Saturday at the hands of Dagenham and Redbridge, with the Daggers triumphing 2-0 over Dave Challinor's men.

Jordan Flores featured for 62 minutes on his AFC Fylde debut, whilst defender Luke Burke played the full 90 minutes.

Fylde remain eighth in the National League, five points behind Dover Athletic who occupy the final play-off place.

ELSEWHERE

Midfielder Luke Burgess was an unused substitute in Chorley FC's 1-0 home defeat to Boston United, with the defeat leaving the Magpies ninth in National League North, five points behind York City in the last play-off place.

Chris Merrie was also an unused substitute for Altrincham FC during their 2-0 victory over Halesowen Town, with the Robins' win seeing them four points clear of Warrington Town at the top of the Northern Premier League on 74 points.

Josh Laurent was unavailable for Bury during their 2-0 defeat to Latics in Sky Bet League One.
