Loan army update

Gary O'Neil: Played the whole match for Cardiff as they drew 2-2 with bottom club Rotherham. Despite take the lead through goals in the 70th and 74th minute, a late Millers comeback pegged back our Carling Cup opponents. O'Neil will be cup-tied for our clash on Tuesday though, as he played for us at Tranmere in the second round.

Richard Duffy: Winning goalscorer at Elland Road in the week, his Burnley team lost 2-0 at home to Ipswich days later. No net-busting excitement either as the young Welshman played ninety minutes, although he did pick up a booking.

John Curtis: Played the whole match for Preston as they were defeated 4-2 by Leeds at home. David Healy came back to haunt his former club, scoring twice only a week after leaving.

Rowan Vine: Substituted with ten minutes remaining as Luton turned over Wrexham 5-1. Rowan set up Stephen O'Leary's goal to make it 3-0, but he'll be far more concerned that it's now seven games since he hit the back of the net himself.

Eddie Howe: Played the whole match as Bournemouth won away at Peterborough, courtesy of yet another James Hayter goal.

Gary Silk: Returned to the Wycombe starting line-up following a suspension. The Chairboys lost 1-0 though, the solitary strike coming from the catchily-named Bartosz Tarachulski. As a point of interest, Grant Hegley was the referee of this match - the same guy who was in charge of our game against Walsall a couple of years ago when he swanned about dishing out six yellows, awarding two penalties and allowing a twenty man brawl to take place. Nice to see the FA sent him into the depths of the lower leagues to ruin things.

James Keene and Shaun Cooper: Like peas in a pod, they both played the whole game for Kidderminster. They crashed 4-0 at home to Boston United, and are now three points from safety at the bottom of the Football League - arse!
