Loan Round-Up: Three Canaries on target

26 February 2018

Three Norwich City players found the net for their respective loan clubs throughout the course of the weekend.

The first came on Friday night when Todd Cantwell notched his maiden career goal by putting Fortuna Sittard 1-0 up at NEC in the 79th minute of their Eerst Divisie clash. 

Fortuna ultimately had to settle for a point following Arnaut Groenveld's leveller soon after however, with Cantwell having impressed since making his temporary switch to the Netherlands.

A day later, Russell Martin scored Rangers' second goal late on as they earned a 2-0 Scottish Premiership win over Hearts at Ibrox.

Martin played the full 90 minutes for Rangers, while Steven Naismith completed his return from injury by featuring as a second half substitute for the visitors.

The third City player to get their name on the scoresheet was Ebou Adams, who did so in by thundering home during Leyton Orient's 3-3 National League draw with Gateshead.

Somebody with an entirely different objective to scoring goals, goalkeeper Remi Matthews kept another clean sheet as Plymouth Argyle's stunning Sky Bet League One run continued.

The Pilgrims edged to a 1-0 victory courtesy of Antoni Sarcevic's first half goal, extending their streak of league wins to six games and moving into the play-off places in the process.

Having endured a disastrous start to the season, Argyle's form since Matthews arrived has been little short of incredible - catapulting them up the table at a rate of knots.

They still have some way to go in order to catch high-flying Shrewsbury however, who claimed a 2-0 triumph away to Charlton Athletic.

Ben Godfrey played the full match while Carlton Morris was withdrawn deep into injury-time as the Shrews won through goals from Alex Rodman and Omar Beckles.

A tier further down, Adam Phillips was an unused substitute as Cambridge United were beaten 1-0 at Accrington Stanley.

Goalkeeper Paul Jones also remained on the bench for Exeter City, who secured a narrow 1-0 win away to a Grimbsy side for whom Diallang Jaiyesimi completed 90 minutes.

Further afield, Marcel Franke played 90 minutes for Dynamo Dresden on Friday evening as they won 3-2 at Arminia Bielefeld in Bundesliga II. 

The weekend action was rounded off by Kenny McLean playing for Aberdeen at home to Celtic on Sunday, with the away side taking a 2-0 victory in a feisty Scottish Premiership affair at Pittodrie.

Earlier that day Yanic Wildschut had missed out on a place in Cardiff City's matchday squad as they earned a late 1-0 win over Bristol City in the Sky Bet Championship.
