Loan report- Maitland-Niles named Ipswich player of the month; Zelalem assists

Ainsley Maitland-Niles delivered a lively performance before being replaced with 71 minutes gone as Ipswich Town drew 2-2 with Bristol City. Maitland-Niles’ impressive displays saw him named the club’s player of the month for September.

Chuba Akpom played the whole game and came close to scoring as Hull City drew 1-1 with Blackburn Rovers. Isaac Hayden was an un-used substitute.

Carl Jenkinson played the whole game as West Ham United drew 2-2 with Norwich City.

Gedion Zelalem played 62 minutes before being replaced by fellow Arsenal academy product Dean Shiels as Rangers beat Greenock Morton 4-0. The midfielder set up a goal for James Tavernier with a neat pass.

Emiliano Martinez played the entirety of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ 1-1 draw with Preston North End.

Jon Toral played 62 minutes as Birmingham City lost 2-0 to Rotherham United. The Spanish midfielder had a powerful effort saved by Lee Camp.

Wellington started and had a couple of attempts saved before being replaced in the 71st minute as Bolton Wanderers drew 2-2 with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Dan Crowley was introduced in the 71st minute and was booked for a late challenge as Barnsley beat Gillingham 2-0.

Serge Gnabry will be hoping to feature when West Bromwich Albion play Everton tomorrow.

Yaya Sanogo wasn’t involved as Ajax beat Groningen 2-0.

Wojciech Szczesny missed Roma’s 5-1 win over Carpi through injury.



    1. Was thinking the same, but signs are creeping in that the performances of some are starting to dip, namely toral and akpom who both started really well. Hayden has been benched most of the time and very few are getting 90 mins. Still the important thing is that sanogo aside they all seem to be getting a fair crack of the whip and are making appearances.

      JB – would be nice to see monthly stats report of how all the Loanees and the academy boys are fairing, if u have the time. Nothing too grand just appearances, sub apps, mins played, goals scored assists, etc. It would just show the value the lads are getting as opposed to if they stayed. I am not sure any of them would have played in the first team this season so far had they stayed?

  1. I never really understood what made Maitland-Niles so great. Next thing I know he’s playing for us in the Champions League and winning awards with Ipswich. He’s really young yet made a great impact already. Can’t wait to have him back!
