There were debuts for both Tyler Walker and Declan Drysdale last week, as they started for their respective loan clubs.
Walker, who joined Portsmouth last Tuesday, made his debut for Pompey just a few hours later, as he started in a 0-0 draw against AFC Wimbledon, playing the full 90 minutes.
Then this weekend, Tyler started again, this time against Sunderland in a League One fixture at the Stadium of Light.
Walker again played the full 90 minutes, but he was unable to prevent Danny Cowley’s side slipping to a 1-0 defeat against the Black Cats.
In Scotland, Declan Drysdale made a winning start to life at Ross County, as he played the full 90 minutes in their 3-1 win over Motherwell.
Jack Burroughs also played in the same game, coming on with eight minutes left on the clock to help secure the three points.
Unfortunately, there was to be no repeat on the weekend, when Ross County were knocked out of the Scottish Cup in the Fourth Round, falling to a 1-0 defeat to Livingstone.
Burroughs and Drysdale both started the game, with Drysdale playing the full 90 minutes and Burroughs being withdrawn on 86 minutes.
Back to England and in League Two, Josh Pask was forced off after 73 minutes during Newport County’s 1-0 win over Scunthorpe United.
The centre-back started again for Newport, and once again, Newport didn’t concede with Pask on the pitch, but it came at a cost, with Josh being replaced after suffering a knee injury.
Finally, Danny Cashman was an unused substitute as Rochdale drew 0-0 with Bradford City at the Crown Oil Arena.
