It’s been an eventful few days for our players out on loan.
Attacking midfielder Jack Roles fired home a spectacular low 35-yard drive to set Cambridge United on the way to a 2-2 home draw with Macclesfield Town in League Two on Saturday – his second goal since linking up with the U’s near the beginning of the season.
On target inside 13 minutes, Jack’s appearance against Macclesfield represented his third consecutive start for Colin Calderwood’s men. He also lined up in a 1-1 draw at Stevenage and a 1-0 home loss to Swindon Town recently, having stepped off the bench to open his goalscoring account in the previous game at Mansfield Town on 17 September, which the U’s went on to win 4-0.
Jack has made nine appearances in all competitions for Cambridge so far this term, five of which have been starts.
Also in League Two at the weekend, central midfielder George Marsh came on for Leyton Orient in the second half to help them see out their first league victory since 20 August away at Northampton Town.
George was introduced 10 minutes from time as Orient secured a valuable 1-0 win in what was the midfielder’s sixth appearance for his loan club. He previously started the last four league matches for the O’s having made a positive impression on his debut in their Leasing.com Trophy opener against Southend United in early-September.
Saturday also yielded a big win for central defender Cameron Carter-Vickers and his Stoke City side, as they picked up their first Championship victory of the season at high-flying Swansea City, coming back from a goal down to triumph 2-1. The USA international defender completed 90 minutes for the fifth consecutive league game – he’s made nine appearances in all competitions for the Potters so far.
Unfortunately, Luke Amos and Kazaiah Sterling have both been sidelined for their respective loan clubs due to injury of late. Central midfielder Luke began the season as a regular for Championship side QPR but hasn’t featured since coming off the bench in a 3-2 home win over Luton Town in mid-September. He’s made six appearances for Rangers to date. Striker Kazaiah, meanwhile, has played four times for League One outfit Doncaster Rovers, scoring in a 3-1 home win over Lincoln City in the Leasing.com Trophy at the beginning of last month. His most recent appearance was from the start in a 2-1 home victory over Rotherham on 7 September.
Elsewhere in League One, winger Anthony Georgiou has made five appearances for Ipswich Town so far this term, but has been an unused substitute for their last three matches, which have seen them beat Gillingham, Tranmere and Fleetwood. Summer signing Jack Clarke, meanwhile, has been on the bench for Leeds United’s last three games in the Championship. His only two senior appearances for the Elland Road outfit so far this season have come in the Carabao Cup, although he has also picked up match minutes for Leeds’ Under-23 side.
