LOAN WATCH | Check out how our three loan players performed this weekend!

19 November 2019

It was not a great weekend for all three of our loanees.

Marvel Ekpiteta helped 10-man Ebbsfleet United fight back to salvage a 2-2 draw against Hartlepool United.

Gavan Holohan bagged a brace to give Hartlepool a two-goal cushion before Josh Umerah saw red for ‘Fleet. 

However, the hosts rallied and Ekpiteta helped keep the Monkey Hangers out after the restart before 'Fleet hit back with a late double from Myles Weston to secure a point.

Ekpiteta will be looking to keep his place in the side when Ebbsfleet take on Stockport in the Vanarama National League on Saturday. 

Elsewhere, Jay Foulston continued his development with Chippenham Town but couldn’t prevent a 3-0 defeat to Slough Town in the National League South. 

The 18-year-old, who has been an ever-present for the Bluebirds, helped keep out Slough until first-half stoppage time when Warren Harris broke the deadlock. 

Further strikes from Max Worsfold and Matt Lench sealed the win for the visitors at Hardenhuish Park. 

Foulston and co will be looking to bounce back in the third qualifying round of the Buildbase FA Trophy on Saturday when they travel to Dulwich Hamlet.

Meanwhile, Modou Touray’s Barry Town United fell to a third consecutive defeat in the JD Cymru Premier League.

After losing to Caernarfon Town and Connah’s Quay Nomads, the Dragons were hoping to get back to winning ways but Charley Edge’s early goal was enough to hand Cefn Druids a 1-0 win.

Despite losing Ryan Kershaw to a red card on 49 minutes for a bad challenge on Touray, the Druids held on for the three points.

Touray was replaced by Eli Phipps just shy of the hour mark.

They are next in action against Penybont on Friday evening at Jenner Park where Touray will be hoping to rediscover the form that saw him awarded the league’s young player of the season last year.
