Loan Report – Goals, Wins, and a Table Topper

It was a better week all round for Birmingham City’s on loan players with all four either scoring or winning their games.

Jake Jervis and Adam Rooney faced off against each other in the clash between Carlisle United and Swindon Town. Whilst the two teams finished stalemated at 2-2, Jervis won the battle of the strikers, scoring twice whilst Rooney only got one goal. Jervis scored his first in the fourteenth minute after a defensive mix-up, only for Rooney to equalise with a 25 yarder. However a piledriver from Jervis restored Carlisle’s lead within seconds only for Paul Benson to equalise two minutes later.

For Jervis it was a welcome return to form after the horror show of the of the previous week whilst Rooney will have been pleased to open his account for the Robins. Jervis is only on loan at Brunton Park until Saturday and with three goals in his five games for the Cumbrians I’m sure that Greg Abbott will want to keep the Wolverhampton-born striker at the club for a while longer.

Fraser Kerr played all ninety minutes of Motherwell’s 2-1 win away to Dundee which sees the Well top of the Scottish Premier League. Motherwell, who came back from conceding an early goal to Colin Nish with two strikes from Michael Higdon sit pretty on top of the table with six games gone with expected leaders Celtic languishing in fifth, four points behind albeit with a game in hand.

Graham Hutchison played all ninety minutes as Lincoln City won their first game in eight against Hyde United thanks to a late strike from Vadaine Oliver which lifts the imps out of the relegation places. The young Scottish centre-half has become a fixture in the Imps defence and whilst the Lincoln defence has looked a little shaky at times it will be good experience for him.

    I foree Jake Jervis, staying on at Carlisle for a while longer, Whilst he is hitting form it makes sense to leave him there and gain more experiance and confidence which will be good for us long term surely, !!.

    Pleased that Graham Kerr, is also playing well with table toppers Motherwell, Again it gives him confidence in his abilities, and we may well need him back here sometime, be it January or next season.!!.

    Almajir;, What do you think of the recent report of that Frenchman, [ from Southend ] possibly being given a trial with us, ?.

  • frederico says:

    I’m so glad that the players we have loaned out are proving to be such good value. Let’s all hope that the teams they now play for will prosper. This might take our minds off the players who are still here…….presumbly because they were not up the standard required for a loaneee

  • Blue in Spain says:

    I see we had two trialists playing for the development side, the french lad Bilel Mohsni and Paul Robinson (Is that the ex Bolton and West Brom defender?)

  • jazzzy786 says:

    Mohsni’s stats show he is a defender who has played 44 games for southend and scored 18 goals. That’s an impressive scoring ratio. I notice he scored for the reserves. I think we should snap him up.
