A look at how our players are getting on away from the club
It was a quiet weekend for Town’s loanee’s last weekend with only three of the six players seeing any game time at all.
Callum Roberts had the most successful weekend as he was recalled to the TNS side for their 5-0 win over Carmarthen Town. Chris Seargeant grabbed a hat-trick in the rout as The New Saint’s went a point clear at the top of the Welsh Premier League. The clean-sheet also keeps up their amazing record of not conceding in the league since the first game of the season.
Elsewhere in Wales, Ryan Sears’ Newtown side were controversially beaten 1-0 by Connah’s Quay. Callum Morris scored the only goal of the game, but TV replays suggested that Morris’ volley didn’t cross the line and therefore should have been ruled out. Sears has been an ever-present for Newtown since his arrival this summer.
Up in Scotland, AJ Leitch-Smith had to settle for a place on the bench as Dundee beat Hearts 2-1 at Dens Park. However, AJ did have chance to effect the game when he came on in the 78th minute with the score at 1-1. His run and shot forced the corner which Kerr Waddell scored from to give Dundee a 93rd minute winner.
Meanwhile, both Dom Smith and Shaun Rowley didn’t have games on Saturday as their sides had already been knocked out of the FA Cup.
Finally, Zak Jules looks set for a long spell on the sidelines after picking up a hamstring injury in midweek. It meant that Jules missed Chesterfield’s fixture this weekend where the Spireites lost 2-0 at home to Cheltenham in what was new boss Jack Lester’s first game in charge. We will bring you more news on Zak’s injury later today.
