Woodman Takes Swansea To The Top Of The Championship

Freddie Woodman made his tenth start for Swansea City this evening. They defeated ex-Magpie Lee Bowyer’s Charlton Athletic 1-2 and moved to the top of the Championship.

Freddie is one of only two Newcastle players who are getting starts with their loan clubs. While Freddie has started all ten of his starts in the league, Liam Gibson is the only other Magpie who is on a string of starts. Liam has started the past five games for Grimsby Town.

Dan Barlaser at Rotherham and Kelland Watts at Stevenage both got a lot of action in the beginning of their loan spells. However, their time on the pitch has faded recently. Barlaser has only 15 minutes of football over the last five matches. Watts has not started in the last two games after a string of eight starts.

Meanwhile at Carlisle, Elias Sorensen has just one league start. He is stuck behind fellow loanee Olufela Olomola in the pecking order at striker.
