LOAN ROUND-UP

13 January 2015

The latest update on City's loan exports

In Sky Bet League One, Jacob Murphy made the perfect start to life at Scunthorpe United as they secured an emphatic 4-1 win away to Walsall on Saturday ton continue their impressive recent form.

The Iron are now undefeated in 11 matches in all competitions under the guidance of former City striker Mark Robins, with their latest result moving them four points clear of the relegation-zone.

Murphy started the match, and aided the Glanford Park outfit's cause by laying on their second goal of the afternoon for fellow loan recruit Tom Hopper, ahead of being substituted just before the hour-mark.

The third tier also saw appearances for Harry Toffolo and Louis Thompson as Swindon Town moved to the top of the table with a convincing 3-0 win at Coventry on Monday night.

Both players completed the full 90 minutes, and played a significant part in the final result which saw the Robins leapfrog previous leaders Bristol City.

With just eight minutes gone it was Toffolo's cross which was headed home by Andy Williams, before the striker added his second of the evening soon after with a penalty after Thompson was fouled in the area.

Mark Cooper's side are in formidable form, having won eight of their most recent ten league matches, losing just once as they push for promotion to the Sky Bet Championship.

Further down the English footballing pyramid, Carlton Morris made a late substitute appearance for York City as they were beaten 1-0 by Sky Bet League Two leaders Wycombe Wanderers.

It marked the 19-year-old's first Minstermen game since having his loan contract extended last week, with his renewed deal now set to run into February.

Finally, in France, Ricky van Wolfswinkel played his first game since the winter break as St-Etienne extended their unbeaten league run to 11 matches with a 2-1 victory at Reims.

The win lifted Les Verts into the top three at the expense of Paris Saint-Germain, and leaves them just three points off table-topping Lyon.
