The Premier League and Championship may have been taking a rest but there were seven Newcastle loan players named in matchday squads on Saturday.

The players experiencing varying levels of success.

Fleetwood 2 Coventry 0

Jamie Sterry had a decent debut and made a superb clearance off the line when the score was still 0-0.

Sadly two goals from the home side meant a 2-0 defeat on his Coventry debut – elsewhere in the team recent (permanent) signing from Newcastle, Gael Bigirimana, was man of the match for the Sky Blues.

Carlisle 1 Accrington 1

Carlisle remain the only unbeaten club in League Two, with Newcastle’s Macauley Gillesphey playing the full 90 minutes in defence.

Oldham 2 Shrewsbury 3

Ivan Toney (pictured above) helped his loan club to an away win at Oldham, scoring the second goal from the penalty spot after winning the spot-kick himself.

Bolton 1 Southend 1

Bolton stayed top of League One but couldn’t make their domination count. Recovering from an early goal by the visitors they couldn’t find a winner, Sammy Ameobi getting the final 12 minutes from the bench.

Newport v Barnet (Abandoned)

Kyle Cameron was an unused substitute as Newport trailed Barnet to an early goal, only for the match to be abandoned at half-time due to the amount of water on the pitch.

Millwall 1 Bradford 1

No sign of Haris Vuckic despite Bradford City only naming six substitutes.

Luton 4 Wycombe 1

Luton Town are top of League One after seeing off Wycombe Wanderers, Alex Gilliead an unused sub.

Stevenage 6 Hartlepool 1

Tom Heardman watched the 90 minutes from the bench as Hartlepool scored the first goal after only four minutes and then got a real hiding.
