LOAN ROUND-UP: TURNER BOOSTS OWLS

5 October 2015

Nine City players away from Carrow Road on loan

MICHAEL Turner helped Sheffield Wednesday maintain their impressive run in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday, completing the full match as they won 3-1 at home to Preston North End.

The Owls have now collected 10 points from the four games which Turner has featured in, moving them to within touching distance of the play-off places.

Elsewhere in the division, Tony Andreu played the opening 71 minutes as Rotherham United went down 2-1 at home to Burnley in the Sky Bet Championship on Friday evening.

Having seen former manager Steve Evans depart earlier in the week, the Millers trailed early on courtesy of Andre Gray's strike.

They levelled with quarter of an hour remaining through Grant Ward, only for former City loanee Sam Vokes to hit the winner shortly after.

There was also late drama at Ashton Gate, where Josh Murphy's MK Dons rescued a last-gasp point against Bristol City.

With the Robins leading for most of the contest following Jonathan Kodjia's first half opener, substitute Daniel Powell - who was introduced for Murphy on 80 minutes - salvaged a draw for his side in injury-time.

In Sky Bet League One, Jacob Murphy continued to impress during Coventry City's convincing 3-0 win over Shrewsbury Town.

A brace from Adam Armstrong, in addition to a penalty from Marc Antoine-Fortune, moved the Sky Blues up to fifth and within three points of the automatic promotion positions.

Well done to @MrReiceCook on a great debut! Clean sheet and super solid! #stillanumber10 👍🏽

One of those two places is taken up by leaders Burton Albion, with young goalkeeper Remi Matthews an unused substitute as they won 1-0 against Southend United.

The third tier also saw Louis Thompson in action for Swindon Town, but he couldn't prevent Mark Cooper's side from falling to a 1-0 defeat at Blackpool.

A division below, Jamar Loza made his Stevenage debut from the start at home to Carlisle United having completed a short-term switch to Hertfordshire on Friday.

However, Teddy Sheringham's men were beaten 1-0 by the Cumbrians, leaving them without a win in six matches.

Finally, in Scotland, Carlton Morris played the opening 69 minutes as Hamilton Academical were narrowly edged out 2-1 by champions Celtic at New Douglas Park.

The hosts went in front after just four minutes through Gramoz Kurtaj, but found themselves trailing at the interval after goals from Dedryck Boyata and Leigh Griffiths.

Accies pushed for an equaliser in the second half, although ultimately fell to their first home defeat of the season to stay fourth.
