Loan watch

Andros Townsend scored a wonder goal for Orient but honours were even as our loan players faced each other at Yeovil on Saturday.

In fact, two of our players were on the scoresheet as Jon Obika struck Yeovil's second goal in the 3-3 draw in League One at Huish Park.

However, Andros stole the limelight with a goal to remember as he picked the ball up in his own half - fully 70 yards from the Yeovil goal - and left three defenders in his wake before side-stepping a fourth and crashing home from 20 yards.

Jon was brought down by ex-Spur Charlie Daniels to allow Gavin Tomlin to score from the spot and found the bottom corner from 15 yards to give his side the lead.

Andros responded with his fantastic goal to make it 2-2 just two minutes later, Yeovil went 3-2 up before Orient levelled again for 3-3.

Both played 90 minutes alongside another Spur on loan, Steven Caulker in defence for Yeovil. Ryan Mason scored a cracker for Yeovil in midweek but wasn't involved.

Staying in League One, Adam Smith was an unused substitute for Wycombe as they lost 5-2 at Norwich, with Ben Alnwick in goal for the Canaries.

Troy Archibald-Henville played the full 90 minutes and helped Exeter City to a clean sheet in a 1-0 win at Carlisle.

In the Championship, Jake Livermore made his debut for Derby County - and therefore his debut at that level - alongside a certain Robbie Savage in central midfield as the Rams beat Plymouth 2-1 at Pride Park. He played 85 minutes.

Kyle Walker played 90 minutes in Sheffield United's 3-1 win at Reading while Adel Taarabt was on for 66 minutes of QPR's 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest at Loftus Road.
