Loan Watch: League Two duo taste victory

Three players currently plying their trade away from Macron Stadium feature for respective sides

Saturday was a good day for the three Wanderers loanees in action over the course of the weekend, as the trio all avoided defeat.

Hayden White completed the full 90 minutes as Carlisle United’s resurgence since the appointment of Keith Curle as manager continued. 

Three second-half goals saw the Cumbrians beat Hartlepool United to clinch back-to-back victories, with only an inferior goal difference to Tranmere Rovers now keeping them in the League Two relegation zone. 

Elsewhere in the division, Oxford United moved out of the bottom two zone courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Newport County, despite being reduced to ten men early on in the season half. 

In what was a busy day for referee Darren Sheldrake, Joe Riley was one of eight players cautioned from either side as the U’s held on to clinch only their second win of the season.

Meanwhile, in League One Conor Wilkinson completed the full 90 minutes as Oldham Athletic came from behind to clinch a credible 2-2 draw away from home against promotion candidates Peterborough United.

Neither Keith Andrews or Alex Baptiste featured for Watford or Blackburn Rovers respectively over the course of the weekend.
