As Brighton & Hove Albion were held to a 0-0 draw at Watford on Saturday, several of the club’s loan players were plying their trade in the EFL and overseas too.
The two stand-out results came in League Two where Jordan Maguire-Drew was part of the Lincoln City side that beat Carlisle United 4-1 at Sincil Bank, as they secured their first league win of the season.
Ben White was also involved in a 4-1 victory for Newport County, as he continued to impress for the Exiles, as they swept aside Chesterfield at Rodney Parade, thanks to a hat-trick from Frank Nouble.
Rohan Ince made his Bury debut in the side’s goalless draw with Rochdale at Gigg Lane. The midfielder played the full 90 minutes for the Shakers, and almost got on the scoresheet in the first half, but his 20-yard strike was saved by Brendan Moore.
Christian Walton played the full 90 minutes in Wigan Athletic’s 1-1 draw with Portsmouth at the DW Stadium. It was only the second goal that Walton has conceded in the EFL this season, as the Latics lost their 100 per cent record.
Oliver Norwood came on for the final seven minutes in Fulham’s 2-0 win away at Championship high-flyers Ipswich Town. The Northern Ireland international replaced Fulham’s first goalscorer Neeskens Kebano, as the Cottagers secured their first league victory of the season.
Meanwhile, Kazenga LuaLua was an unused substitute for Queens Park Rangers in a 2-1 defeat away at Championship league leaders Cardiff City.
Tom Dallison was in action on Friday evening against Notts County, and the Albion under-23 defender, who was replaced just short of the hour mark, helped Accrington Stanley to a 2-2 draw at Meadow Lane.
In the National League South, Bailey Vose received the club’s man-of-the-match award in a hard-fought 1-1 draw at home to Wealdstone, before keeping a clean sheet in a 1-0 victory at Bognor Regis, while Archie Davies played the full 90 minutes for Whitehawk in their 4-0 defeat at Havant & Waterlooville.
Over in Norway, Mathias Normann came off the bench to make his Molde debut in their 2-1 win over Kristiansund BK in the Norwegian Cup.
