LOAN ROUND-UP: THOMPSON NETS AGAIN

30 November 2015

13 Canaries currently away from Carrow Road

LOUIS Thompson scored for the second match running as Swindon Town won 4-0 at Chesterfield in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.

The young midfielder added to Nicky Ajose's goal by firing home on 14 minutes, before Jon Obika extended the advantage to three shortly after the interval.

Ajose added his second ten minutes from time to wrap up a comprehensive victory, making it back-to-back wins for Martin Ling's side.

In the same division, Jacob Murphy played 90 minutes for Coventry City as they were held to a 2-2 draw at the Ricoh Arena by Doncaster Rovers.

The home side went into the break ahead courtesy of Adam Armstrong's strike, before Nathan Tyson equalised early in the second half.

Coventry restored their lead through John Fleck on 59 minutes, only for Tyson's second of the game to ensure a share of the spoils.

Fellow City Academy graduate Remi Matthews was an unused substitute for the Sky Blues' promotion rivals Burton Albion, who cruised to an emphatic 5-1 victory over managerless Colchester United.

The result sees Burton close the gap on the top two to a single point, with the Brewers also having a game in hand on both of the sides above them.

Another goalkeeper to progress through the ranks at Colney is Ben Killip, who kept a clean sheet during Lowestoft's 4-0 FA Trophy win over St Albans.

The Trawler Boys secured their place in the first round of the competition, with Killip earning the 'Man of the Match' award for his performance. 


In the Sky Bet Championship, Gary Hooper came on at half-time for Sheffield Wednesday as they drew 2-2 at Blackburn Rovers.

With the visitors trailing 2-1 at the break, Hooper helped his side secure a point from the contest as Lucas Joao struck late on to keep them in play-off contention.

Michael Turner, who is also on loan to the Owls, missed out on the matchday squad due to an ongoing injury problem.

Elsewhere, Josh Murphy's MK Dons withstood Wolves sufficiently to leave Molineux with a 0-0 draw.

A point proved enough to take the Dons out of the relegation-zone, lifting them to 19th in the table.

Harry Toffolo was an unused substitute for Rotherham United's 3-0 win over Bristol City, which saw them collect three points for the second match running.

A brace from Jonson Clarke-Harris put United in control at the break, with Lee Frecklington's 75th minute effort confirming victory for Neil Redfearn's men.

Tony Andreu missed out on the Millers' matchday squad, while Elliott Bennett completed the full match for visiting City.

Disappointing result after making good progress in the last few games. We must now analyse, move on and make sure we put it right ⚽️🔴

In the Vanarama National League, Cameron Norman played 82 minutes as Woking went down 2-1 at Barrow.

Over the border, Carlton Morris featured for the opening 77 minutes as Hamilton Academical won 2-1 away to Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership.

The hosts had led for much of the match thanks to Billy Mckay's first half goal before Gavin Gunning's own-goal levelled matters with 20 minutes to play.

Accies then stole victory as Ziggy Gordon struck to lift City boss Alex Neil's former side up to fifth.

Brilliant result today for us @acciesfc to climb up the SPL a couple places, now time for fight night 🤘😁💥

Finally, Ricky van Wolfswinkel was absent from the matchday squad as Real Betis won 1-0 away to Levante in Spain's La Liga on Friday.
