Unbeaten Start For Albion Loanees

By Alex Stedman • 06 August 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion’s five players currently out on loan enjoyed an unbeaten opening weekend for the 2018/19 campaign. 

Christian Walton began his second loan spell with Wigan Athletic with three points as Paul Cook’s men beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 at the DW Stadium. 

A brace from Michael Jacobs and a goal from Nick Powell meant that the home side made a winning start to life back in the Sky Bet Championship. 

In Sky Bet League Two, Steven Alzate made his debut for Swindon Town at the County Ground in a 3-2 win over Macclesfield Town.

The midfielder played 68 minutes of a dramatic game which saw two last-minute penalties from Michael Doughty hand Phil Brown’s side an opening day victory, whilst Ben Hall was an unused substitute in Notts County’s 0-0 draw at home to Doncaster Rovers at Meadow Lane in Sky Bet League Two.

Goalkeeper Robert Sanchez played the entirety of Forest Green Rovers’ 4-1 win away to Grimsby Town at Blundell Park. 

Four second-half goals for the visting side cancelled out Mitch Rose’s first half penalty for the hosts, as Mark Cooper’s men picked up three points in their first Sky Bet League Two outing of the campaign. 

Jordan Maguire-Drew also played the final half an hour of Wrexham's 1-0 win over Dover Athletic in the Vanarama National League having joined the side earlier this week.
