Loan Update – Local Lad Adds To Season Tally In Pivotal Win



Matty Longstaff added to his Mansfield tally with a late goal in the 2-0 win over Stevenage last night. The Stags took the lead through George Lapslie who scored after a corner in the 51st minute.

Mansfield held strong to keep Stevenage at bay. In the 93rd minute, Longstaff received a pass in the box and coolly slotted his low shot into the near corner to make it 2-0. It was Matty’s fifth strike of his loan spell.

The win significantly improves Mansfield’s promotion push. They move to fifth in the League Two table a full four points above 8th placed Swindon Town with two matches remaining.

Matty’s goal can be seen at the 1:38 mark of the YouTube video below.

Rodrigo Vilca returned from his red-card suspension on Sunday night for Universitario to make his fifth appearance. The 23-year-old came on as a second-half substitute in the 1-1 draw against Sport Boys.

Kelland Watts was an unused substitute in Wigan’s disappointing 3-2 defeat at Portsmouth after taking a 2-0 lead. The Latics remain top of League One with their final match coming at Shrewsbury on Saturday.

Freddie Woodman was an unused substitute as Bournemouth stormed back from a 3-0 deficit to get a massive point at Swansea. Nottingham Forest picked up a big win at Fulham to close within 3 points of The Cherries for the automatic promotion place.

    #NUFC fans have been urged not to the ‘mickey out of starvation’ by singing offensive chants aimed at Liverpool supporters this Saturday.

    “We don’t sing about hunger. We don’t want to hear that this Saturday.”

    TDSarf,
    The general consensus on Total Sport last night (BBC Newcastle) was five or six in, that was with two strikers and a keeper. If that’s the case then 9 need to go, baring in mind the homegrown rule it’s going to be tricky.

    Clark, Hendrick, Gayle, Woodman and Darlow are five very easy ones, I think we could add Manquillo to that as he’s not homegrown?? And has been surpassed by Krafth, there’s six so maybe not that tricky.

    Just seen that Mike Dean , is a VAR official in our game on Saturday. So once again , no chance that any VAR decision will go our way. Unbelievable.

    The three you could add to that list are, for me, Dummet, Ritchie and Murphy. You could replace one with a top class winger and one with a prospect from the championship.

    Raj – 5 or 6 in fits easily to be honest. Example
    GK(3) – NEW, Dubs, Gillespie
    RB (2) – Trippier, Krafth
    LB(2) – NEW/Targett, Dummett
    CB (4) – NEW, Burn, Lascelles, Schar
    CM (5) – Bruno, Joelinton, Sean, Shelvey, Willock
    LW (2) – ASM, Fraser
    RW – (2) – NEW, Almiron
    ST (3) – NEW, Wilson, Wood

    That still leaves 2 spaces left in the squad.

    OUT – Darlow, Fede, Gayle, Manquillo, Ritchie, Clark, Hendrick, Woodman, Murphy, Hayden, Matty, Lewis
    LOAN – Langley, Cass, Watts

    Of the above, Gillespie, Trippier, Targett, Dummett, Burn, Lascelles, Sean, Shelvey, Willock, Wilson, and Wood are all homegrown off the top of my head. So that’s 11 just there. We only need 8 I think? Also possible that we might sign one or two more.

    Home-grown definitions…

    You can be considered as homegrown, irregardless of your nationality. This is similar to the Champions League.
    Moreover, you’ll need a minimum of 8 homegrown players in the EPL too!

    However, it has one difference from the Champions League. The Champions League requires you to have at least 4 players who are club-trained. This means that the player has to be trained by the club that is registering him.

    For the EPL, there is no such requirement. As such, an English club can buy 8 homegrown players, without training any of them!

    Munster,
    I’m not sure why we can’t be, by what the players are saying the owners seem to have very grand plans, Shelvey mentioned PSG and Man City type levels

    Jail, I must dig this up, but if you have a link do lob it up. Im not sure whether that would be Shelveys interpretation or the owners ambitions. To me they seem understated in ambition, but I think Im reading too much into Luke Edwards

    Having seen the way Everton got at them down TAA side I’m sure we can do the same, if maxi is dragging extra defenders to him switch him over to the right and let Miggy run at TAA

    So you’re keeping a perma injured old Dummet and getting rid of a young Lewis who could potentially improve with the guidance of Eddie, each to their own I guess

    Darnik – I just said it was an example. Not my decision to make and I don’t have insight into the reasons for Dummett not being fit recently or the issues with Lewis. Howe has insinuated that he wants Dummett to stick around though. Maybe he gets rid of them both, I just don’t know. But swap Lewis for Dummett and the point is exactly the same, especially as he’s homegrown too.

    TDSarf,
    Like Rafa bi go I’d be surprised if many of us got all the outgoings right. A perfect example is we simply don’t know the managers plans for Lewis, if he’s to be retained then it changes the whole LB situation as then Dummet is surely surplus with Burn being able to cover LB and CB.

    Fair play, wasn’t picking a fight just curious as I would keep Lewis as back up I do think he’s got potential and as you say homegrown so I’d love to see him come good, if for no other reason than to keep the cost down enabling us to spend more elsewhere

    The Chronicle poll was pretty enevenly split on Dummet so definitely not cut and dried. I for one find it baffling why anyone wants him kept other than on the coaching staff and he’s too young for that.

    Clint, ok, maybe “dislike a lot” is better 🙂

    Mind you, when you see every second kid over here wearing Liverpool tops and the adult fans just loving all their glory, its hard to like them.

    When I was coaching the Under 8s/9s a few years ago there were 4 coaches and the other 3 were Liverpool. It was like a bit red love in every saturday morning.

    Putrid stuff , and they just loved taking the mickey out of me! 🙂

    Davas, despite some journos daying Amanda and Co hadnt a clue, the fact that they chose Eddie, and wanted Emery, shows they were making very astute decisions, instead of looking at the ex england luvvy central midfielders etc.

    Agree with your squad assessment except I’d keep Murphy and Lewis. They both have room for improvement and time on their side, and are athletes.

    Raj – Yep. My list was just an example for how the numbers work. Swap Lewis for Dummett and it’s the same thing. Can even add Hayden and Murphy back into the squad and we still have room for those 5 signings plus any players young enough to not need registering.

    It’s going to be a busy summer but I suspect the squad we’ll have on 1st September will be something like that.

    Another possibility is that a decent offer arrives for the likes of Fraser, Almiron, or Lascelles and they want to leave for more first team football.

    Darnik – Personally, I’d prefer Lewis is kept over Dummett but with Howe choosing Dummett over Lewis for the squad in January and also recent comments he made about wanting Dummett to stay, it makes me wonder.
