LOAN ROUND-UP: MIDWEEK REVIEW

4 November 2015

Five Canaries see competitive action

ELLIOTTBennett played a vital role in Bristol City's 1-0 Sky Bet Championship victory over Wolves on Tuesday evening, providing the assist his side's winning goal.

The 26-year-old winger's cross on the stroke of half-time was headed home by striker Jonathan Kodjia to move City four points clear of the relegation-zone.

Featuring against the Club whose Academy he originally graduated from, Bennett was eventually replaced in the 78th minute.

Brilliant win last night for the team. Unbelievable character after weekend result. Day off after 3pts is so much more enjoyable ⚽️🔴

Josh Murphy played the full match for MK Dons as they edged to an important 1-0 home win against struggling Charlton Athletic.

The game was settled by Dean Bowditch's first half strike, giving the Dons their first win in four outings.

Personally not my best performance but the team was outstanding today! Should have won by more aswell! Well done @deanbowditch9 4 the goal!🙌

Meanwhile, fellow Academy graduate Harry Toffolo also completed 90 minutes as Rotherham were narrowly beaten at Middlesbrough.

An early goal from former England wide-man Stewart Downing proved enough for the visitors to take all three points, leaving United bottom of the division.

Tony Andreu played 87 minutes at the Riverside Stadium before being substituted.

Boys dug in against a very good Middlesbrough side! Thank you to the fans that travelled.. Big game against Ipswich Saturday! We go again!

Elsewhere, Gary Hooper was
 an unused substitute in Sheffield Wednesday’s 0-0 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion at Hillsborough.

Michael Turner missed the match through injury, with his last Owls appearance coming on Saturday, 17 October against Hull.

In Sky Bet League One, Jacob Murphy’s Coventry won a thrilling game 4-3 against Barnsley at the Ricoh Arena.

Murphy himself took to the field after most of the drama had already occurred, coming on as a substitute just after the hour-mark.

At that stage the Sky Blues led 4-2 courtesy of goals from Ryan Kent and Joe Cole either side of an Adam Armstrong brace, before Josh Scowen’s late penalty completed the scoring.

Victory moved Tony Mowbray’s side to within a point of the automatic promotion positions.
