LOAN ROUND-UP: LAFFERTY OFF THE MARK

5 March 2015

Five Canaries currently away from the Club on loan

KYLE Lafferty scored his first goal for Rizespor on Saturday, netting the third in a comfortable 3-0 home victory over 10-man Eskisehirspor.

The result lifted Lafferty's side out of the Turking Super Lig relegation-zone at the expense of Kayseri Erciyesspor, ahead of visiting struggling Bal─▒kesirspor this weekend.

Meanwhile, in France, Ricky van Wolfswinkel's St-Etienne were forced to go all the way to penalties by comparitive minnows Boulogne in the Coupe de France quarter-final.

The Dutch striker was withdrawn in the 64th minute ahead of two late goals taking the match to extra-time, with the scores remaining level at 1-1 after 120 minutes.

Les Verts eventually triumphed 4-3 on spot-kicks to progress to the last four, with Paris Saint-Germain among the sides they could face in the next round.

Back in England, Louis Thompson was forced off with a shoulder injury during Swindon Town's 0-0 draw at Crewe Alexandra on Saturday, which subsequently kept him out of the Robins' game against Gillingham three days later.

Harry Toffolo came off the bench as a 61st minute substitute for Town in the stalemate at the Alexandra Stadium, before being promoted to the starting line-up for the meeting with the Kent outfit.

However, he was unable to prevent his side from falling to a 3-0 home defeat, with former Canary Cody McDonald scoring twice for the visitors.

Swindon have now won just one of their last six Sky Bet League One matches, but remain within two points of the automatic promotion places.

Finally, Cameron McGeehan played 90 minutes at the weekend as Luton Town eased their way to a comfortable win over Accrington Stanley at Kenilworth Road in Sky Bet League Two.

The midfielder also completed the full match away to Bury on Tuesday, but fared less well as a solitary Tom Soares goal settled the contest to bring the Shakers level on points with John Still's side.
