Loan round up



  • Martin Samuelsen, fresh from scoring his first international goal for Norway, started for Blackburn on Saturday
  • There was also action for Josh Cullen and Lewis Page in League One with Bradford City and Coventry City respectively
  • Doneil Henry made his second AC Horsens appearance

As the Hammers recorded their first away win of the season at Selhurst Park on Saturday, four of the Club’s players were also in action elsewhere at their respective loan sides.
Starting and playing 62 minutes in the Championship was Norwegian winger Martin Samuelsen, who scored his first ever senior goal for his country against San Marino during last week’s international break.
Rovers recorded their first clean sheet of the campaign against Ipswich Town in the second tier, drawing 0-0 with Mick McCarthy’s side.
The hosts, who remain in the relegation zone, created their best opportunity just before the break when Ben Marshall shot straight at the Tractor Boys’ stopper Bartosz Bialkowski.
Samuelsen was making his fourth appearance for the Lancashire outfit before he was replaced by Elliot Bennett with just under half an hour to play.
Down a division, Josh Cullen – who has missed just two Bradford City league matches this season, both due to international commitments – played 90 minutes for the Bantams as they were beaten by Oxford United.
It was a shock first league defeat of the season for Stuart McCall’s side, who still occupy an automatic promotion spot in League One.
Chris Maguire’s stoppage time winner ended City’s unbeaten run as the forward struck a 25-yard free-kick to give the hosts all three points.


Elsewhere in the third tier, Lewis Page started for Coventry City in their 3-0 defeat to Charlton Athletic, but lasted just 24 minutes as he was forced off through injury.
And at least five of those 24 minutes were disrupted in south east London as both sets of fans hurled toy pigs onto the pitch in protest of their respective owners.
Ricky Holmes struck during the first half to give the Addicks the lead before Ademola Lookman and Josh Magennis scored late on to seal the three points for the hosts.
George Dobson and Josh Pask were both unused subs for Walsall and Gillingham respectively as the Saddlers beat Shrewsbury Town 3-2 and Justin Edinburgh’s Gills lost 2-1 at Bristol Rovers.
Finally, Doneil Henry returned from international duty with Canada to make his second appearance for Danish side AC Horsens on loan.
Coming on to play 32 second half minutes, the defender helped his side record a 1-1 draw against AFG, which leaves them seventh in their 14-team Superliga division.
Gambian defender Bubacarr Sanneh gave Horsens the lead in the first period before Danny Olsen equalised on 63 minutes.
