got off to the perfect start at Yeovil Town on Saturday, less than two days after completing his one-month loan switch.
Thrust straight into the struggling Glovers side, the Liverpool-born midfielder produced a fine first 90 minutes and aided a surprise 3-0 win over promotion-chasers Watford.
Fellow Blue Shane Duffy is already at Huish Park and has since extended his loan until 27 December.
And he too played the entire contest against the Hornets as Gary Johnson's men gained three vital points.
Loyal Glovers supporter and blogger Ben Barrett took the time to analyse Duffy’s continuing development, as well as Lundstram's debut.
On the former's accomplished defensive display, Barrett commented: “Shane headed every long ball, he blocked every shot and threw himself in the way of everything Watford could throw at him.
"His relationship with centre back Byron Webster continues to grow and his performance was brilliant."
Lundstram impressed heavily on his debut, despite having only been with the squad for just 24 hours.
Barrett reported: “John's performance was topped off by an assist for the third goal, but what pleased me most was his ability to slot into midfield with little fuss.
“He looked like he had been there all season - a tireless worker - and whilst every pass might not have found its man, his range of passing was clear for all to see.
"Both men are looking like early names on the teamsheet for Tuesday's game against Blackpool."
Meanwhile, Luke Garbutt
’s trip with Colchester United back to Merseyside was tainted by a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Tranmere Rovers.
The Us appeared to get off to a good start, with Garbutt delivering two decent corners within the first 10 minutes, only for Rovers to block the resulting shots.
Ultimately, the left-back played the full 90 minutes and his set-piece deliveries continued to cause trouble. But goals either side of half-time for Tranmere were enough to settle the outcome.
Sitting 16th in League One, Colchester are now not in action until 14 December when they host Notts County.
Finally, Francisco Junior
didn’t feature in Vitesse Arnhem’s assured 3-0 victory over SC Cambuur on Sunday.
Vitesse regained top spot in the Eredivisie as they won for the fifth straight game.
