loan watch 17 march

The coronavirus may have postponed Newport County AFC’s season until April 4, but there were still some Exiles in action last weekend.

Marvel Ekpiteta featured for Ebbsfleet United as they edged past FC Halifax Town 1-0 in the National League. 

The defender marked his 20th league appearance for ‘Fleet with a clean sheet and another three points – courtesy of Gozie Ugwu’s 16th minute strike. 

Forward Dom Poleon also got some game time in Dover Athletic’s 1-1 draw with Chesterfield. 

The 26-year-old forced Chesterfield goalkeeper Shwan Jalal into a fine save before Denton fired the Spireites ahead with a late penalty. 

However, Nassim L’Ghoul came off the bench to rescue a point for Dover. 

In the National League South, teenage defender Jay Foulston was involved as Chippenham Town drew 1-1 with Wealdstone. 

Scott Twine continued his blistering form for the Bluebirds with the opener but Michee Efete bagged the equaliser early in the second half.
