Loan Round-Up: Guedioura's Watford Go Top

18 March 2015

Adlene Guedioura helped Watford move to the top of the Championship last night as the Hornets beat Wigan Athletic 2-0 at the DW Stadium.

The Algerian international played the full game, having also featured for 58 minutes of their 4-1 thrashing of Reading on the weekend, as Troy Deeney netted twice to edge his side to the Championship summit on goal difference ahead of Middlesbrough.

At the other end of the division, Jack Hunt couldn't help Rotherham United overcome Wigan on the weekend as the Millers lost 2-1 at home in a crucial game at the bottom of the table on Saturday. The right-back played the whole 90 minutes, but Zeki Fryers was again not selected in the matchday squad after the Millers brought in Northern Ireland international full-back Daniel Lafferty on loan from Burnley.

Hunt's side will have the chance to pull nine points clear of the relegation zone though when they travel to Nottingham Forest tonight, where the spent the first half of this season on loan. Steve Evans' side have won two of their last four games, having only won two of their previous 12 in all competitions. 

Paddy McCarthy helped Bolton Wanderers keep a clean sheet as they beat Millwall 2-0 on the weekend, but was absent for their 1-0 defeat to Ipswich Town last night. Barry Bannan played all but three minutes of the win against the Lions, but had to settle for a 27 minute cameo in the loss to Mick McCarthy's men, leaving Wanderers 16th in the table.

In League One Lewis Price was again involved on the right side of a five goal thriller as his Crawley Town side won their second successive game by a 3-2 scoreline. After tasting success at  Colchester United on Saturday, the Red Devils travelled to Port Vale last night and again came out on top of a thrilling encounter to lift them to within two points of safety with nine games of the season remaining. 

Elsewhere in the division Stephen Dobbie made a late cameo appearance for Fleetwood Town in their 2-0 defeat at home to Coventry City last night, and Peter Ramage was again missing for Barnsley as they extended their unbeaten run to seven games after drawing 0-0 with Leyton Orient.

Sullay Kaikai once again scored from the bench in Cambridge United's 2-1 home defeat to Tranmere Rovers last night. It took just eight minutes for the winger to get on the scoresheet after entering the fray in the 55th minute, finding the net after a mazy run around the Rovers defence. He had played the full game on the weekend as the U's drew 1-1 with Stevenage, but after last night's results Cambridge are just six points above the League Two relegation zone.

Jerome Binnom-Williams was once again an unused substitute in Southend United's 3-1 win against Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday, but he has the chance to feature tonight as they travel to leaders Burton Albion aiming to cut the gap between themselves and the top three sitting in the automatic promotion places.
