Shilow Tracey completed his first 90 minutes for Macclesfield Town over the weekend, just days after opening his goalscoring account for the club.
Having linked up with the League Two outfit on loan at the end of January, the 21-year-old attacker was on target in their 1-1 home draw with Plymouth Argyle last midweek – his first senior league goal – but was left frustrated in his attempts to repeat the feat on Saturday as his side slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Crewe Alexandra, dropping a place to 23rd in the table as a result. They remain eight points clear of basement side Stevenage.
Duo resurface on the bench
Elsewhere in League Two on Saturday, midfielder Jack Roles returned to Cambridge United’s matchday squad for their trip to Plymouth, having missed their previous five games through injury. He remained an unused substitute in what turned out to be a goalless draw.
Defender TJ Eyoma, 20, was in a similar situation for League One side Lincoln United, taking his place on the bench in their 0-0 home draw with Gillingham, having been absent from the squad for their previous three outings. TJ, who was also an unused substitute in his loan club’s 2-1 loss at Southend United on 1 February, is yet to make his debut for Lincoln after joining them in January.
Mixed fortunes in the Championship
Centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers started for Luton Town for the second consecutive Saturday but couldn’t prevent the Hatters from suffering a 3-1 defeat at Charlton Athletic. Seven days earlier, Cameron helped to keep a valuable clean sheet in a 1-0 win away to Middlesbrough.
Defensive midfielder Luke Amos returned to action for Queens Park Rangers in the same division on Saturday, coming on as a late substitute in his side’s goalless draw at Nottingham Forest. He’d sat in reserve for Rangers’ previous two matches, having been a regular starter before that. Winger Jack Clarke was also an unused substitute in each of QPR’s last three games.
Marsh continues to shine
George Marsh started a League Two match for Leyton Orient for the 16th consecutive time at the weekend as the O’s drew 2-2 at home to Oldham Athletic. The 21-year-old has been operating at right-back for Ross Embleton’s men in recent weeks, having begun his Orient career in his more familiar central midfield role during the first half of the season.
Late showing for Shashoua
Attacking midfielder Armando Shashoua appeared as an 87th-minute substitute for Spanish Segunda División B side Atletico Baleares as they saw out a 1-0 home win over Racing Ferrol on Sunday. He’d started for the first time the previous weekend in a 1-1 draw at Coruxo.
Premier League minutes
Senior full-backs Kyle Walker-Peters and Danny Rose have been in top-flight action in recent weeks. Kyle made his Southampton debut from the start in their 2-1 home defeat by Burnley last weekend, but wasn’t involved in Saturday’s 2-0 home victory over Aston Villa, while England international Danny has started Newcastle United’s last two matches, both of which ended in defeats away to Arsenal and Crystal Palace.
