Loan Round-Up: Bannan's Bolton Beaten

16 February 2015


On Saturday Barry Bannan was on the wrong end of a seven goal thriller as his Bolton Wanderers side conceded a late goal to Watford in his third appearance for the Trotters. 

A topsy-turvy encounter saw Neil Lennon's men score an 85th minute equaliser through youngster Zach Clough, but Troy Deeney scored with seconds of the 90 minutes to play to leave Wanderers 15th in the Championship table and give them a mountain to climb if they are to reach the Championship play-offs.

Rotherham United's three match unbeaten run came to an end on Saturday as they were beaten 2-1 by Blackburn Rovers, again thanks to a late strike from Matt Derbyshire. Zeki Fryers played the full 90, with Jack Hunt coming on a substitute in the 51st minute, playing their fifth and second matches for the Millers respectively. The club now sit three points ahead of the relegation zone but have a game in hand on the majority of their rivals which will take place on Tuesday against second-placed Derby County.

In League One, Ryan Inniss made his Port Vale debut and helped the Valiants to their first victory in five games by clinching a 1-0 victory at Walsall. The teenager made his seventh appearance of the season after spending the early part of this season at Yeovil Town, and it happened the be the first time he's ended up on a winning side during that time. Vale are now just four points away from the play-off places.

Having scored in midweek against Stephen Dobbie's Fleetwood Town, who incidentally lost 2-0 to Crewe Alexandra on Saturday, Peter Ramage was rested for managerless Barnsley's trip to Crawley Town on the weekend, where the Geordie defender would have come up against a fellow Eagles teammate in Lewis Price. However the Tykes could have done with his experience in their backline as they were thumped 5-1 by the Red Devils, with Izale McLeod helping himself to a hat-trick.

That loss sees Barnsley get sucked further into relegation trouble with the Yorkshire side now just four points above the drop zone. Meanwhile, Price's Crawley remain 22nd but are now just three points from climbing out of the bottom four, and just four behind Barnsley.

Dropping down a division, Jack Gray's loan stint at Cheltenham Town ended before the weekend's game, with the winger's final appearance for the club coming in a 2-0 defeat to Southend United where he faced fellow development side colleague Jerome Binnom-Williams. The winger made four appearances for the Robins during his month at Whaddon Road.

Binnom-Williams meanwhile saw his Shrimpers side's 10-match unbeaten run come to an end as they lost 2-1 at home to Accrington Stanley in what was the 19-year-old's 20th appearance for the club so far this campaign.

After the highs of their FA Cup exploits, Cambridge United's struggles continued as they were beaten 2-0 by Plymouth Argyle to extend their search for a league success to five matches. Sullay Kaikai hit the bar in the first half before being subbed off with 20 minutes to go.
