Loan Round-Up | Maupay Helps Everton? FA Cup Action

Hello and welcome back to our second weekly report on how Everton’s loanees are fairing away from Goodison Park. Most clubs have been in action twice this week, so let’s see how the players are getting on as we head into the hectic festive period.

National League

Harry Tyrer- Chesterfield- 1st out of 24

It’s been a rare week off for the Chesterfield no.1, as he was rested for the Spireites’ FA Cup clash against Leyton Orient.

Tyrer had started 20 out of 22 fixtures for the National League high-flyers until Saturday’s game, and so manager Paul Cook’s decision to give the stopper a rest afforded back-up ‘keeper Ryan Boot a rare appearance.

Victory for the Derbyshire club booked their place in the Third Round, where they will travel to Vicarage Road to face Championship side, Watford.

Should Tyrer feature against the Hornets in January, it will be the highest ranked team he has faced in his short career to date.

For now, however, the academy graduate is gearing up to face Southport on Saturday in the FA Trophy as he looks to build on a successful loan spell.

 

Premier League

Neal Maupay- Brentford- 11th out of 20

Neal Maupay made arguably his greatest contribution for Everton last weekend, as he scored in Brentford’s 3-1 triumph over Luton Town.

Maupay’s goal came in the 49th minute and set the Bees on their way to a comfortable home win.

Victory for Brentford helped narrow the gap to safety for the Frenchman’s parent club, as Everton leapfrogged the Hatters on Thursday.

The 27-year-old’s instinctive finish on Saturday was his second goal in four games for the West Londoner’s, as he seeks to put his Everton nightmare behind him.

Maupay was in action again on Wednesday night, playing the full 90 minutes against his former club, Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Seagulls won 2-1, with Brentford remaining in 11th.

 

Championship

Mason Holgate- Southampton- 4th out of 24

Mason Holgate was again an unused substitute at the weekend, as Southampton recorded a 2-0 home win over Cardiff City.

The result maintains the Saints’ promotion push, however Holgate continues to find it difficult to dislodge Jan Bednarek or Taylor Harwood-Bellis for a starting berth in Russell Martin’s side.

The defender now looks ahead to Saturday, as his side hope to continue their eleven game unbeaten run at 10th placed Watford.

The former England u21 international will most likely have his sights set on the FA Cup as a route back into the team, as they were drawn at home to Walsall or Alfreton Town, a game he is sure to feature in.

 

Lewis Warrington- Plymouth Argyle- 16th out of 24

Warrington’s tough time on loan continued this weekend, as the midfielder did not make Argyle’s matchday squad for their 2-1 home defeat of Stoke City.

Victory for the Pilgrims sees them rise to 16th, as Steven Schumacher’s side prepare to face league leaders Leicester City on Saturday.

It is difficult to see when the loanee’s chance will come under Schumacher, with a favourable FA Cup draw to Sutton United looking like the 21-year-old’s best chance of reviving his spell in Devon.

 

League One

Stanley Mills- Oxford United- 3rd out of 24

Mills’ promotion push was put on hold this weekend, as Oxford turned their attention to the FA Cup, setting up a Third Round tie with Coventry City after beating Grimbsy Town 2-0 on Saturday.

The winger played 68 minutes in United’s victory, as he continues to light up the Kassam Stadium with dazzling displays down the right hand side.

The U’s then faced Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday night in the EFL Trophy.

New manager Des Buckingham made a host of changes, as Mills was subbed on after 86 minutes, seeing out a 1-0 victory over fellow Everton loanee Reece Welch.

Oxford will now focus back on league football, as they face Peterborough United on Saturday in a bumper promotion clash at London Road.

 

League Two

Reece Welch- Forest Green Rovers- 23rd out of 24

Welch’s side were not in cup action at the weekend, as their Second Round clash against Blackpool was postponed due to an investigation into Rovers.

The FA are looking at the “eligibility of a player used by Forest Green in the first round”.

Barnsley were kicked out of this year’s competition for the same offence and so it is unclear at the moment whether Rovers will feature again in this year’s competition.

If the game is played, the winners will travel to the City Ground to face Premier League club, Nottingham Forest.

Welch was in action on Tuesday night, however, as he played 23 minutes in the aforementioned 1-0 loss at Oxford United.

Forest Green face Wrexham at home on Saturday, with the 20-year-old looking to regain his place in the starting eleven.

 

Conference North

Zan-Luk Leban- Farsley Celtic- 17th out of 24

The Slovenian shot-stopper was given the weekend off, as Celtic’s game against Peterborough Sports was postponed.

Leban will be without a game until December 12th, when the West Yorkshire club face Curzon Ashton.
