Loan Report: Campana Debuts

PUBLISHED

09:00 20th February 2014


Last weekend saw Jose Campana make his Nuremberg debut as a half-time substitute and helped his side overcome Augsburg 1-0 as they climbed out of the Bundesliga relegation zone.

The Spanish under-20 international swapped England for Germany on transfer deadline day and his introduction from the bench helped his new side find the only goal of the game with 25 minutes remaining to continue their revival. 

Having not won in the league until 25th January, not helped by drawing 11 of their first 17 games, they have now won three of their last four matches to pull away from danger and face bottom club Eintracht Braunschweig on Saturday.

Jimmy Kebe continues to help Leeds United stabilise on the field at least by steering the Whites to two wins in their last three matches, while also grabbing a goal in their 5-1 victory against Huddersfield Town at the start of the month. However the winger couldn't prevent his current side go down 1-0 to Brighton in their last outing, so will be looking to help them get back on track against Middlesbrough in a televised clash on Saturday lunchtime.

Barnsley loanees Peter Ramage and Jack Hunt haven't been able to rectify the Tykes' recent slump as they have gone the month winless, including a 2-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic on Tuesday night. Hunt sat out that game but had featured in the previous three games as he continues his rehabilitation from an ankle injury which has delayed his Palace career to date.

Stephen Dobbie has made three appearances for Blackpool since returning their for a third spell on deadline day, but like Ramage and Hunt has yet to taste victory as the Tangerines have drawn their last two games against Nottingham Forest and Ipswich Town, with former Eagle Elliot Grandin making his second debut for the club in the former.

Hiram Boateng and Sullay Kaikai are still yet to make their Crawley Town bows after their last two games against Carlisle United and Tranmere Rovers were postponed due to weather. Indeed the Red Devils haven't played since the end of January due to the recent storms sweeping Britain, but the Palace pair will hope to make their first appearances on Saturday when they travel to Walsall.

Kwesi Appiah's initial one-month loan at Notts County saw him make five appearances for the Magpies, finishing on the winning side just once as they slid into the League One drop-zone, whilst Ryan Inniss made his Gillingham debut against Sheffield United last night but was injured trying to prevent Chris Coady's solitary strike for the Blades just before half-time.

Alex Wynter has extended his loan deal with Sutton United for another month and continues to help their Conference South promotion push, playing the full game as they saw off Dover Athletic 1-0 on Tuesday before they take on Eastbourne Borough this Saturday, and Ross Fitzsimons has returned to Palace after a couple of months at Hendon, playing nine times for the Isthmian League Premier Division club.
