Loan Watch: Jermaine Beckford and Tom Eaves in FA Cup action

5 January 2015

Andy Kellett also features for League Two Plymouth Argyle in latest round of Football League fixtures

In one of the more eagerly-anticipated FA Cup third round ties, Tom Eaves was part of the Yeovil Town side that hosted Premier League giants Manchester United at Huish Park. 

Having seen Ander Herrara fire United in front just after the hour-mark, Eaves was introduced to the action moments later as Yeovil chased an equaliser.

However, it was not to be for the Glovers as Louis Van Gaal’s side wrapped up the win courtesy of a substitute of their own in stoppage time, Angel Di Maria racing clear before slotting home.

Jermaine Beckford’s Preston North End enjoyed better fortunes in the cup as they claimed a shock 2-0 victory over Championship side Norwich City at Deepdale to secure their place in round four.

Starting on the bench, the Jamaican international replaced Andy Little just after the hour-mark with the scores goalless.

Having seen Paul Gallagher open the scoring soon-after, Beckford then helped create his and Preston’s second goal in the dying embers of the game, stealing possession off Ryan Bennett before feeding Kyle Reid, who in turn crossed for the Scot to score.

Meanwhile in League Two, Andy Kellett completed 90 minutes as Plymouth Argyle were held to a 0-0 draw away at ten-man York City.
