Ten Norwich City loanees were in action for their respective clubs last week.

In the Championship, Sam McCallum played 180 minutes across Coventry City’s 0-0 draw at home to Huddersfield and 1-0 loss at Sheffield Wednesday.

The Sky Blues are now 18th in the league.

Elsewhere in the division, Blackburn Rovers beat Rotherham United 2-1 in dramatic fashion on Wednesday, Tom Trybull coming on in the 68th minute and Rovers scoring the winning goal in the 98th.

Tony Mowbray’s side then lost 1-0 at Stoke City on Saturday to go 11th in the Championship.

Like McCallum, Timm Klose also kept a clean sheet in FC Basel’s 0-0 draw at home St. Gallen on Saturday, having been beaten 2-0 by Young Boys in midweek. Basel are now second in the Swiss Super League.
