The latest on City's loan exportsHARRY Toffolo and Louis Thompson continued their integral roles at Swindon Town over the past week, with consecutive 90 minute appearances for the Robins.
On Saturday the pair featured in the 2-0 home victory over Barnsley, before also appearing in Tuesday night’s 2-1 defeat away to Oldham.
Those results leave Mark Cooper’s side in the Sky Bet League One automatic promotion positions with 17 matches remaining, although they trail leaders Bristol City by four points having played a game more.
In the same division, Jamar Loza was an unused substitute as Yeovil Town secured a 2-1 win over Crawley Town at Huish Park on Saturday under the guidance of caretaker manager Terry Skiverton.
The forward did feature briefly in the Glovers most recent outing away to Crewe Alexandra, coming off the bench for the final five minutes of Tuesday's 1-0 defeat.
Further down the Football League, Cameron McGeehan followed up last week’s appearance against Manchester United at Old Trafford by starting for Cambridge United at home to high-flying Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.
The midfielder was given a straight red card in the 55th minute, with the away side going on to secure all three points courtesy of a Hogan Ephraim free-kick.
McGeehan’s dismissal means he must serve a suspension which extends beyond the agreed loan spell, and Canaries manager Alex Neil confirmed the 19-year-old will now return to Carrow Road.
The fourth tier also included a brief weekend appearance for Carlton Morris, who played the last 18 minutes of York City’s 2-0 loss at Dagenham & Redbridge.
Former City striker Jamie Cureton scored both goals for the visitors, with the result seeing Russ Wilcox’s side drop into the relegation zone.
In Turkey, Kyle Lafferty made his Caykur Rizespor debut on Sunday as they fell to a 2-1 home league defeat to Besiktas.
The game was settled by a late Demba Ba penalty, with Lafferty set to remain at the Super Lig side on loan until the end of the current season.
Finally, Ricky van Wolfswinkel scored the opener in St-Etienne’s 2-1 French Cup victory at Red Star FC on Tuesday evening, going on to play 72 minutes before being substituted.
That came after a 54 minute appearance on Friday night, as Les Verts played out a dramatic 3-3 home draw with Lens.
