Loan watch: On-loan trio avoid defeat

15 September 2014

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

With three of Wanderers' four loanees in action over the course of the weekend, one of them made his debut for his temporary side as all three avoided defeat.

Alex Baptiste completed the full 90 minutes as Blackburn Rovers came from behind to clinch a 3-1 victory over Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park.

Blackburn could have fallen behind in the first half after the defender was deemed to have brought down Callum McManaman in the penalty area, only to see Ivan Ramis miss the resulting spot-kick.

Meanwhile Keith Andrews did not feature as Watford lost 1-0 to Charlton Athletic.

In League One Conor Wilkinson came off the bench in the 64th minute to make his Oldham Athletic debut against Gillingham, as the two sides fought out a 0-0 draw.

Elsewhere Joe Riley notched an assist as he completed the full 90 minutes in Oxford United’s 1-1 draw with Exeter City. Picking the ball up on the right-hand side, the full back sprinted down the wing before picking out Callum O’Dawda at the far post, leaving the forward with a simple finish.
