Four Magpies Start For Their Loan Teams This Afternoon

Freddie Woodman started his eleventh straight league match for Swansea this afternoon. It was a very disappointing 1-2 loss at home against bottom Stoke City who had failed to win a match all season. The loss sees Swansea drop from the top spot in the Championship.

Jacob Murphy made his twelfth appearance for Sheffield Wednesday as an 80th minute substitute. The Owls won 1-0 at home against Wigan. It was just another late game cameo for Jacob who has started only one league match since August.

It’s back to the starting eleven for 22-year-old midfielder Dan Barlaser today. Dan had started the first six matches in all competitions for Rotherham. However, he had featured just 15 minutes in the previous five games. Barlaser lasted 73 minutes in a 4-0 win at home against Coventry. It’s great to see him back in the starting eleven.

Rolando Aarons made just his second appearance for Wycombe Wanders at home against Peterborough this afternoon. The 23-year-old came on in the 43rd minute with Wycombe down 0-2. They were able to level the score at two goals apiece. However, former Magpie Ivan Toney added a third goal for Peterborough in the second half. A late penalty would gain Wycombe a point in a 3-3 draw.

Liam Gibson started his sixth straight game for Grimsby Town at home against Mansfield. The left-back played the entire game in 0-1 loss for Grimsby. Even though down to ten men, Mansfield were able to get a winner in the 6th minute of stoppage time.

Kelland Watts found his way back into the starting eleven for Stevenage at Colchester. The center-back, who has not started the last two matches, was played at right-back for the injured Luther James-Wildin. Stevenage lost 3-1 and remain bottom of League 2 without a win this season.

Elias Sorensen was an unused substitute for the second straight match for Carlisle. Carlisle lost 1-0 at Newport County on a stoppage time goal. Manager Stephen Pressley substituted two of his front three this afternoon but still didn’t give a chance to Sorensen.

Goalkeeper Nathan Harker was an unused substitute for Blyth Spartans at Hednesford Town in the FA Cup Third Qualifying Round. They lost 4-2 and have exited the FA Cup.
