LOAN ROUND-UP: THOMPSON ON TARGET

25 November 2015

Midweek action for City's loan exports

LOUIS Thompson struck a last minute winner for Swindon Town as they beat Walsall 2-1 in Sky Bet League One on Tuesday evening.

The hosts had seemed set to be held to a point when Jonathan Obika's header was cancelled out by Saddlers striker Tom Bradshaw on the hour-mark.

However, Thompson's low drive in the final minute of normal time ensured Town registered their second win in three games.

A steady improvement in fortunes under Martin Ling has helped lift the Robins out of the relegation-zone after a difficult start to the season.

Well done big Louis Thompson with last minute goal! Big 3 points! 👏🏼

One team who are enjoying a successful campaign in the third tier are Coventry, who moved top on Saturday thanks in part to Jacob Murphy's first senior hat-trick as they emphatically beat Gillingham.

The Sky Blues faced a sterner test at Bradford City in midweek, being held to a 0-0 draw by the Bantams.

Murphy went close to stealing victory for his side late on, only to be denied by Bradford goalkeeper Ben Williams.

Coventry's result allowed promotion rivals Burton Albion to close the gap to three points, courtesy of a 1-0 win at Wigan Athletic.

Young City goalkeeper Remi Matthews was an unused substitute for the away side, with Abdenasser El Khayati's solitary goal settling the contest.

Finally, Cameron Norman completed 90 minutes for Woking on Tuesday as they secured a 4-1 home win over Tranmere Rovers in the Vanarama National League.

First half goals from Dan Holman and John Goddard put The Cards firmly in control, before Holman extended the lead further early in the second half.

Joe Quiqley added a fourth ahead of James Norwood's late consolation for Rovers, meaning Woking have now won back-to-back games.
