Loan Round-Up - 29 September

by Mike Taylor
@Everton

It was a disappointing weekend for those Everton players out on loan - with both who were in action tasting defeat. 

Midfielder John Lundstram played another 90 minutes for Championship strugglers Blackpool as The Seasiders slipped to a 3-1 loss at home to Norwich City.


Jose Riga’s side actually took the lead on the stroke of half-time when Nathan Delfouneso struck past former Toffees stopper John Ruddy.

However, an own goal and two strikes in two minutes resigned Blackpool to their seventh defeat of the season.

Meanwhile, Hallam Hope came off the bench for Sheffield Wednesday after 66 minutes but was unable to help The Royals salvage a point as they fell to a 2-1 defeat away to Cardiff City.

Sean Morrison broke the deadlock just before the break with a well-worked goal, but then converted into his own net early in the second half to level the scores.

Anthony Pilkington bagged the eventual winner for Cardiff on the hour as The Owls slipped out of the play-off places in the Championship.

Hope was introduced off the bench with former Blues winger Royston Drenthe as manager Stuart Gray looked to boost his attacking threat.

And, on the subject of wingers, Matthew Kennedy was an unused substitute in Hibernian's shock 3-1 win over Rangers at Ibrox on Monday evening.

The 19-year-old has made five starts and two substitute appearances so far for the Edinburgh-based club, who climbed out of the play-off relegation spot after an impressive away performance.
