Nine City players in action

MICHAEL Turner made his first league start in over two months for Sheffield Wednesday last Friday night.

The central defender's season-long loan with the Yorkshire outfit has been plagued by injury but he completed 90 minutes as Carlos Carvalhal's side drew 0-0 at Turner's old club Hull City.

In the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday, Josh Murphy was involved in an entertaining game for MK Dons away to Blackburn Rovers.

Murphy was introduced as a 61st-minute substitute and made an impact with an assist for Alex Revell's late equaliser to make it 2-2 at Ewood Park. Ex-Canary Elliott Bennett had earlier fired his first Blackburn goal.

Revell turns Murphy's cross past Steele and the Dons are level. Two in two for the striker! 2-2 #BLBvMKD

Paul Lambert's Rovers snatched all three points in added time, however, as Jordi Gomez curled in a delightful free-kick.

Dropping down a tier, City pair Louis Thompson and Harry Toffolo came up against each other playing for their respective loan outfits.

Thompson's Swindon Town came out on top, beating Toffolo's Peterborough United 2-1 at London Road thanks to goals from Nicky Ajose and Michael Doughty.

Full-back Toffolo, who was up against one of his former loan employers, came on as a 58th-minute substitute while Thompson started for Swindon but was taken off on the 70-minute mark.

Gutted about result at the end! Thank you to the @Official_STFC for the reception! We go again Tuesday!

Elsewhere in the division, James Maddison and Jacob Murphy were both taken off midway through the second half in Coventry City's disappointing 2-1 home reverse to Fleetwood Town, while Jamar Loza wasn't involved in Southend United's matchday squad for their 3-1 defeat at Port Vale.

Woking's FA Trophy run came to an end at the quarter-final stage, with Cameron Norman playing 90 minutes in their 2-0 loss away to Grimsby Town on Saturday, while in the Vanarama National League North Division goalkeeper Ben Killip couldn't prevent Lowestoft Town from being beaten 2-0 by Chorley Town.

North of the border, Carlton Morris put in an impressive individual display for Hamilton Academical, coming off in stoppage time of their 1-1 draw with Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic at New Douglas Park.

Falkirk beat Queen of the South 3-1 in the Championship, but Conor McGrandles won't play a part again for the Bairns this season after suffering a double leg break in their previous match against Morton.

Lastly, Ricky van Wolfswinkel was an unused substitute for Real Betis on Saturday as they played out a 2-2 draw with Rayo Vallecano.
