Loan watch: Duo start in midweek fixtures

27 January 2016

Hayden White and Conor Wilkinson both in action for respective loan sides

Hayden White helped Blackpool increase the gap between themselves and the Sky Bet League One relegation zone on Tuesday night.

Hosting Sheffield United at Bloomfield Road, the defender completed 90 minutes as the Tangerines and Blades fought out a 0-0 draw.

Now two points clear of the drop-zone, Blackpool have now conceded just one goal in their last five home games.

Elsewhere in  the division, Lawrie Wilson was an unused substitute as Peterborough United lost 1-0 at home to league-leaders Burton Albion.

Meanwhile in Sky Bet League Two, Conor Wilkinson started for Newport County as they lost 1-0 to Kevin Nolan's Leyton Orient.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21s international completed 77 minutes for the Exiles before being replaced by Scott Boden as Jay Simpson's late penalty sealed all three points for the home side.
