Our Scotland Under-21 international goalkeeper made his first league start for Northampton in Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Newport County, having linked up with the League Two side on loan at the start of the season.
Despite conceding in the first minute against the Pools, it turned out to be a much better evening for the Walthamstow-born stopper as his side rattled in five goals at the other end to secure an emphatic victory.
Shaq Coulthirst was also in the thick of the League Two action on Tuesday night, starting for Southend United in their 1-0 win at Cheltenham Town.
Our on-loan striker was a threat up front for the Shrimpers before being replaced with 14 minutes left.
It wasn’t such a good night for Alex Pritchard in the Championship, however, as his Brentford side slumped to a 3-0 home defeat to Norwich City. Midfielder Alex played the full match.
Kenny McEvoy, meanwhile, was an unused substitute for Peterborough United in their 2-1 League One reverse at Gillingham.
