Loan Watch: 2nd February

4 February 2019

Scott Burgess

Scott Burgess made it two starts in two for York City as his side came from 2-1 down to claim all three points in dramatic fashion, as Steve Watson claimed his first three points in charge of the Minstermen.

Sean Newton put York ahead at Alfreton, but the hosts turned the game around thanks to a Reece Styche brace. Then up stepped Alex Kempster in the eighty-fifth minute to level the scores, before Jordan Burrow buried a penalty three minutes later to complete a late comeback.

Burgess played fifty-nine minutes before being replaced, as York closed the gap on their opponents to just one point, still having a game in hand in sixteenth place.

 

Tom Aldred

Aldred’s temporary side overcame Livingstone by three goals to nil on Saturday. The ‘Well raced into a 3-0 lead after the opening twenty-one minutes thanks to a Jake Hastie brace and a Curtis Main strike. The result sees Motherwell claim a maximum twelve points from their last four league outings.

Tom played the full ninety minutes in defence, helping the hosts to a clean sheet. The three points saw Motherwell go level on points with Livingston, sitting ninth on goal difference.

 

Harry Bunn

Harry was again absent from the matchday squad as he continued to recover from his injury. Southend fell to 2-1 defeat at home to Bristol Rovers who now sit just outside the relegation zone in the Sky Bet League One table.

Liam Sercombe and Gavin Reilly put the visitors two goals to the good before Simon Cox pulled one back for the Essex club who are currently 12th in the league table.

 

Jordan Archer and Joe Skarz

Both Southport (Archer) and Halifax Town (Skarz) were not in action this weekend.

 

Dougie Nyaupembe

Stalybridge Celtic were due to host Whitby Town on Saturday, but the game had to be called off due to a frozen pitch.
