LOAN ROUND-UP: DEBUTS FOR ANDREU & ODJIDJA

14 September 2015

Nine Canaries currently out on loan

TONY Andreu and Vadis Odjidja both made their debuts on Saturday as Rotherham United earned a 1-1 draw away to Charlton Athletic in the Sky Bet Championship.

The duo, who by coincidence had featured against the Millers during City's Capital One Cup second round victory last month, penned deals to move to Yorkshire on a short-term basis on transfer deadline day.

Farrend Rawson's strike had given the away side a half-time lead, only for Patrick Bauer to rescue a point for the Addicks following Andreu's header being kept out superbly by goalkeeper Nick Pope.

Elsewhere, Josh Murphy played the full match for MK Dons as two goals in the final 20 minutes consigned Karl Robinson's side to a 2-0 defeat at Middlesbrough.

Meanwhile, Michael Turner was an unused substitute as Sheffield Wednesday were beaten 3-1 in Burnley.

The central defender is yet to make his Owls debut, having moved to Hillsborough on a season-long loan last month.

In Sky Bet League One, Louis Thompson made his Swindon Town return as a second half substitute during a 4-1 loss at Barnsley on Saturday.

Having spent last season on loan with the Robins after completing a permanent switch to the Canaries, Thompson rejoined the Club on a short-term deal at the end of last week.

Disappointing loss to start my time at Swindon, can't wait to put things right on Saturday⚽️

The same division also saw Remi Matthews pressed into action from the bench, with the young goalkeeper replacing Jon McLaughin during high-flying Burton Albion's 1-0 win over Rochdale.

Matthews featured from the 24th minute onwards, helping his side keep an invaluable clean sheet to underline their early promotion credentials.

Another Canary involved in the third tier was Jacob Murphy, who played the opening 54 minutes of Coventry City's 1-0 defeat at Scunthorpe United.

The young winger, who temporarily represented Scunthorpe last season, was replaced by Ryan Kent as Paddy Madden's late strike settled matters in the Iron's favour.

In Scotland, fellow Academy graduate Carlton Morris was withdrawn late on as  Hamilton Academical were convincingly beaten 4-1 by St Johnstone.

Finally, Ricky van Wolfswinkel was an unused substitute as Real Betis claimed a 1-0 home win over Real Sociedad in La Liga.
