Due to the international break there were no fixtures in England’s top two tiers this weekend, whilst several of Arsenal’s foreign-based loanees were also without domestic commitments. However, several youngsters were still involved in the lower divisions both in England and abroad.
Sanchez Watt struck the winner for Colchester in their 1-0 victory over Stevenage in League One yesterday, with his first goal for his latest loan club coming with 55 minutes on the clock. Watt found the net with a powerful effort, before being replaced by Freddie Sears before full-time, whilst Craig Eastmond completed 90 minutes in central midfield.
Chuks Aneke played the full game for Crewe and was heavily involved throughout but couldn’t prevent his temporary side from slipping to a 2-0 defeat to Portsmouth. Aneke had several shots on goal and also made a couple of defensive clearances, but still ended up on the losing side.
Conor Henderson, meanwhile, was an un-used substitute for Coventry. In League Two, Daniel Boateng‘s Oxford take on Port Vale tomorrow night.
In the Spanish second division, Wellington turned in a lively performance after emerging off the bench as a 57th minute substitute for Ponferradina against Guadalajara, but his side still lost out, whilst Samuel Galindo wasn’t part of the Lugo side which dispatched of Murcia.
