Weekend loan round-up

12 October 2014

It was an indifferent Saturday as five of the eight Rovers players out on loan saw game time.

In League One neither of our representatives were on the winning side as Josh Morris and Jake Kean were both defeated.

Morris's Fleetwood Town took the lead away at Colchester United, but the home side turned the match around to run out 2-1 winners at Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Whilst Yeovil Town had a day to forget as they slipped to a 4-1 loss away at Port Vale. Jake Kean was in goal for the Glovers, but it was the home side who had the better throughout to condemn Gary Johnson's side to defeat. Jordan Slew was suspended for Vale after his sending off last weekend.

There was better news in League Two as Anthony O'Connor's Plymouth Argyle moved into the top six courtesy of a 1-0 away win over Tranmere Rovers.

O'Connor played the full match as Reuben Reid's first half strike secured all three points to leave Tranmere at the foot of the table.

John O'Sullivan

At the Store First Stadium, John O'Sullivan was Accrington's standout performer but it didn't prevent them slipping to a home defeat at the hands of Dagenham & Redbridge.

O'Sullivan had a hand in the opening goal for Accrington as his cross was diverted into the path of Sean Maguire who steered the ball home at the back post.

However a change at the break lead to a change in fortune for the Daggers as substitute Adam Yussuf scored two near-identical breakaway goals to claim a win for the visitors and a first defeat for Stanley's returning boss John Coleman.

David Raya

In the Vanarama Conference, Southport's long journey to Essex was rewarded as they came away from Braintree Town with an impressive 2-0 away victory on Saturday.

With David Raya in goal the Sandgrounders picked up their second away win of the season and a valuable clean sheet for the young Rovers goalkeeper.

The win sees Southport move out of the bottom three.
