Loan Update – Defender Returns From Injury As Two Other Magpies Get Rare Appearances



Kell Watts returned from his ankle injury on Tuesday evening. The defender started in Wigan’s 2-1 win at Solihull Moors in an FA Cup First Round replay. Watts had missed the previous two league matches after suffering the injury in the initial FA Cup tie.

It was deadlocked after full-time at a goal apiece. But The Latics got a winner in the 104th minute from midfielder Callum Lang to advance to the second round. Watts was able to play the full match, which was his 17th appearance during his loan spell.

Matty Longstaff got a rare run out in Aberdeen’s 1-0 defeat at Dundee United on Saturday. Matty was brought on in the 73rd minute for Jack Gurr for just his fifth appearance.

The match was 0-0 heading into the break when both teams had a player sent off within minutes of each other. It was still scoreless when Matty came on in the second half. Unfortunately, Dundee got the winner in the 80th minute through Ian Harkes.

Aberdeen have now lost two straight matches and find themselves in the bottom half of the Scottish Premiership. The nervy times has manager Stephen Glass preferring experience over youth at the moment.

Rodrigo Vilca continues to gain valuable experience during his loan spell. He started Doncaster’s 0-0 draw against Lincoln City at home yesterday. Vilca was brought off in the 94th minute for Lirak Hasani.

This was Vilca’s 12th appearance overall and 7th start in the league. Doncaster are still mired in 23rd place in the League One table.

Lewis Cass and Port Vale suffered a heartbreaking 3-2 defeat at Oldham Athletic on Saturday. Cass started and played the entire match which was tied at 2-2 heading into stoppage time.

Unfortunately, an own goal from Aaron Martin in the 93rd minute has resigned The Valiants to the 3-2 defeat. They are currently in third in the League Two table. Cass has made 16 appearances so far this term, 11 of which have been league starts.

Oisin McEntee and Tom Allan both started in Greenock Morton’s 2-1 defeat at Raith Rovers. It was McEntee’s 9th start and Allan’s 10th appearance. Greenock Morton are now second bottom of the Scottish Championship.

Jake Turner was brought on in the 48th minute of Colchester’s 1-0 defeat at Stevenage when starting Goalkeeper Shamal George was forced off with an injury. It was just the third appearance for Jake. He helped to keep Stevenage, who had converted a penalty just before halftime, quiet in the second half.

Who Was Newcastle's Best Player In 3-3 Draw Against Brentford?

    Don’t think there is one. I’d guess he seen him in the shop while browsing said hello and that and then he bought a watch for him out of pure generosity

    We all have to agree. A much better game to watch, although 3 points would have been better. We can all see where we need 3-4 players (surprisingly for me that does not include #7) . Who is finally!!!!!!!!! playing in his correct position.

    Ok so its obvious we need dubs back
    But i honestly think Lacells wont ever make it as a top CB
    Its just not in him

    Personally i think we need Mings from Leeds if such a thing is possible

    Yes our wing backs dont seem to cover the space out wide while defending, or at least get caught out alot
    But thats why you have 3 CBs to cover

    If we could sort our horrendous defence out we have a chance of winning games this season. I think we’ll go for 2 centre backs a full back as a main priority. Ake, Trippier and Tarkowski will probably be main targets.

    I loved that we scored 3 goals and were terrifically entertaining, and that Joel had a blinder, but that doesn’t make our parlous defending or league position any less concerning. Brentford will probably go down, it’s a long season and promoted teams often fall victim to it, and they also have a very ordinary defense.

    I tend to think Howe will improve us, we’ll strengthen in January, and come the end of the season we will have caught and passed 3,4 or 5 sides, but we’ve dropped 6 or 7 precious points already that we should have won and with two thirds of the season gone and rock bottom, the equal worst defense in the league, by some margin, and 6 points behind 17th, our situation could hardly be more serious.

    This more open style suits us, we have some very good attacking options, and if we’d had Howe from the beginning we’d be sitting around 12th, but we are having to come from a long way back now, and I can’t see us surviving unless we necessarily tighten up, and have that good January window we are all hoping for.

    Optimistic, but definitely in trouble.

    Ntbt,
    What would really make the situation worse is if we were in a relegation battle, luckily we’re not so being bottom of the league with the second worse defence and a horrendous run of fixtures coming up isn’t so bad.

    “Peng Shuai: Chinese tennis star tells Olympic officials she is safe”

    this seems suspicious as the Olympic Committee wouldn’t want this to jeopardise the winter olympics in Beijing.

    Our fixtures until Jan are no better or worse than anyone within five places of us!

    The thing is when you’re talking EIGHT games and not two or three theres a very very good chance they’ll even out.

    The next 26 are tough ffs, get a grip.

    Mandy’s Mags,
    I’ve had to switch to Brave browser, it’s got some kind of blocker installed in it, it’s outrageous the amount of nasties it blocks when you’re on this site.
