LOAN ROUND-UP: TURNER ON TARGET

27 April 2015

Five Canaries in competitive action

Michael Turner played an important role in Fulham's dramatic 4-3 Sky Bet Championship victory over Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The 31-year-old put the hosts in front moments before the interval from deep inside the penalty-area, before Ross McCormack doubled their lead ten minutes after the restart with a penalty.

Middlesbrough pulled a goal back through Adam Reach, only for George Friend to be sent off for a foul in the box which led to McCormack's second spot-kick of the day making it 3-1.

The visitors responded well, with goals from Daniel Ayala and Kike bringing them level with just two minutes of regular time remaining.

However, Fulham capitalised on the attacking intent of Aitor Karanka's side; stealing victory in the final seconds as they countered for McCormack to complete his hat-trick.

In Sky Bet League One, Jacob Murphy played 81 minutes as Colchester continued their survival bid with an impressive comeback win away to Fleetwood.

The Us had seemed destined for relegation when they trailed 2-1 in the closing stages, but late goals from Gavin Massey and Chris Porter gave them a vital victory.

Cameron McGeehan lasted just 20 minutes of Luton Town's 1-0 defeat to Southend United on Saturday, before needing to be replaced because of injury.

The young midfielder suffered a suspected fractured elbow in the contest, and is set for a scan later this week.

Town's defeat leaves them three points short of the play-offs with just one game remaining, while also having a significantly inferior goal difference to seventh-placed Plymouth Argyle.

On the continent, Kyle Lafferty came on at half-time during Rizespor's home clash with Kasimpasa, but couldn't prevent his side falling to a 3-1 defeat against the ten-man visitors.

Meanwhile, Ricky van Wolfswinkel appeared as a 79th minute substitute on Sunday during St-Etienne's 1-0 win over Montpellier as Les Verts consolidated fourth position in the league standings.
