Loan Watch #5

Joe Fryer (Stevenage)
Squad rotation meant Fryer watched on from the bench in Stevenage’s 6-2 EFL Trophy defeat to Oxford.

He returned to the starting line-up for the returning league game, keeping a clean sheet in a 1-0 win against Cheltenham. Boro remain unbeaten in League Two and currently sit in second place, with Fryer playing a big part in their strong start to the season.

Matthew Elsdon (Inverness)
Dropped to the bench against Aberdeen U20s in the Challenge Cup, but was subbed on in the 84th minute as Inverness ran out 4-2 winners.

Callum Cooke (Blackpool)
Wasn’t in the squad for Blackpool’s EFL trophy match against Wigan, which they lost on penalties. The midfielder did start the next game though, and played the full 90 as the Seasiders beat Wimbledon 1-0 in League One.

Robbie Tinkler (Gateshead)
There was a second consecutive stalemate for Gateshead against Halifax Town, in which Tinkler played no part. He started on the bench in the next game against Dagenham and Redbridge, and was subbed on in the 16th minute following an injury to Jon Mellish.

Harry Chapman (Blackburn) 
Set up the only goal of the game against Stoke U23s in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday. The 19-year-old is impressing Rovers’ fans so far, which is good to see after injury halted his last season with Sheffield United.

Callum Johnson (Accrington Stanley)
Wasn’t involved for Stanley against Morecambe, most probably because he’d only signed for the League Two side two days before.

Note: Joao Morelli, Connor Ripley, Julien de Sart and Antonio Barragan were not in action this week due a break in their respective leagues.
