LOAN WATCH: Sky Blues Loanee Update

City currently have four players out on loan…

25 October 2021

We take a look at how the players currently away from the Sky Blues have got on last Saturday.

Will Bapaga’s Grimsby Town continued their fine start to the National League season with victory over Yeovil Town this weekend.

Bapaga started on the right wing and won the penalty from which the Mariners took the lead in the 20th minute when he was taken down by Yeovil ‘keeper Grant Smith with Lenell John-Lewis converting the spot kick.

The 19-year-old was withdrawn in the 70th minute with John McAtee doubling Paul Hurst’s team’s lead in injury time to put them four points clear at the top.

Meanwhile in Sky Bet League Two, Danny Cashman’s Rochdale were made to work hard for the three points against Sutton United.

The striker was introduced to the action in the 67th minute with Dale leading 2-0 thanks to goals from Alex Newby and Liam Kelly but two strikes in the last eight minutes from Isaac Olaofe and Alistair Smith looked to have earned the South London club a share of the spoils however Aaron Morley struck four minutes into injury time to lift Robbie Stockdale’s team to 15th in the division.

In the Highlands Jack Burroughs was an unused substitute as Ross County fell to their second successive 3-2 defeat after conceding in second half stoppage time to Livingston.

Burroughs’ side took the lead after seven minutes through Harry Clarke but were denied a second when Livi ‘keeper Max Stryjek saved Jordan White’s penalty with Bruce Anderson and Odin Bailey giving the visitors the lead at the break.

The Staggies thought they had earned a point when Ross Callachan equalized with a penalty, but Tom Parkes earned the visitors the points heading in five minutes into injury time to leave Malky Mackay’s team 12th in the Scottish Premiership.

Finally, ‘keeper Tom Billson is getting closer to full fitness after injuring his knee on his Football League debut for Scunthorpe United in August.
