Loan Round-Up: Guedioura Helps Hornets Gain Promotion

27 April 2015

Eagles midfielder Adlene Guedioura helped Watford to clinch promotion to the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday afternoon.

The Algerian international played the full 90 minutes for the Hornets, helping them back into the top flight with a game to spare. Aside from a booking in the closing minutes, Guedioura was his usual creative self, looking to spur his side to the three points, which ultimately secured their place in next season's Premier League.

Jack Hunt, meanwhile, put in an impressive performance in Rotherham United's 1-1 draw at home to Norwich City, bombing down the right hand side and looking to create chances for his teammates to hurt the promotion-chasing Canaries.

Defender Patrick McCarthy returned from Bolton Wanderers with an injury, effectively ending his loan spell with the Trotters. Teammate Barry Bannan could feature tonight away to AFC Bournemouth.

Sullay Kaikai played the full 90 minutes for Cambridge United away to Oxford United, but was unable to help his side to a share of the spoils, as they crashed to a 2-0 defeat. He came the closest to getting the U's back into the game, but all of his attempts were dealt with by the home side.

Ezekiel Fryers (Ipswich Town) and Lewis Price (Crawley Town) were unused substitutes for their games at the weekend. Whilst Peter Ramage (Barnsley), Kwesi Appiah (Reading), Jerome Binnom-Williams (Southend United) and Stephen Dobbie (Fleetwood Town) played no part in their sides' fixtures.
