Six Magpies Are Handed Starts For Their Loan Clubs

Freddie Woodman continued in the net for Swansea despite conceding four goals at Hull City last Friday. This time he let just one by in a 3-1 win at home against Huddersfield. The win was their first in six matches in the league. It moves Swansea to 9th in the table just 5 points adrift from a playoff place.

Jacob Murphy was handed a start for Sheffield Wednesday at Birmingham this afternoon. The 24-year-old had been resigned to late cameos during the last three matches. Murphy banged in a goal for either side in the 3-3 draw. Unfortunately for Murphy, he started off the scoring for Birmingham when a corner went off him into the back of the net. He redeemed himself with a strike to put the Owls up 3-2 in the 65th minute. However, Birmingham found a leveler in stoppage time to claim a share of the spoils.

Rotherham’s Dan Barlaser made his 13th straight start in the league at a former club in Accrington Stanley this afternoon. The Millers got back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory. Dan got his fifth assist of the season on a 65th-minute corner that was headed in by Freddie Ladapo. Stanley answered a minute later on a goal by Jordan Clark. However, Rotherham found a winner in stoppage time to stay top of the Championship on goal difference over Coventry, who have a game in hand.

Rolando Aarons started for the fifth consecutive match in all competitions for Motherwell this afternoon. They drew 0-0 at Hamilton after going down a man in the 37th minute after Christopher Long received his second booking. Aarons was replaced by Jermaine Hylton in the 76th minute. The point sees Motherwell reclaim the important third spot in the Scottish Premiership.

Kelland Watts got another start for Mansfield as they lost 1-0 at Cheltenham. Watts has started every game since joining the Stags on loan. This was the first time he has not played the full ninety minutes as he was replaced in the 86th minute. Despite the defeat, Mansfield are still five points above the bottom two.

Achraf Lazaar made a rare start for Cosenza in their 2-0 loss at home to Frosinone yesterday. It was just Lazaar’s third start and the first one in which he played the entire 90 minutes. In total, the 28-year-old has only seven appearances for 244 minutes for the Serie B club.

    So Munters gone off in the huff because “Communion wine” translates to “Irish Catholic Alcoholism”? Whaaaa?

    I thought all along you were a lapsed Zoroastrian Dry Wall installer with a shellfish allergy. How far off was I?

    The only way our Steve gets the bullet now is if he doesn’t avoid the plughole. He’s nailed on for a fresh go next season otherwise. Lots more of this football to come folks!

    Oh well, that’s all from the doom and gloom merchants, time to hand over now to the mellow sounds of the night shift crew and those laid back stories of music, invented meetings with b-list celebrities and alien encounters from the 70’s. Goodnight!

    I suppose I could say something equally as sarcastic, but I would never do it the same compositional justice as you do. You’re simply the best 😀
