This week, there was a new addition to the Loan List as attacker Nouha Dicko joined Rotheram United on loan until January. Dicko has seized the opportunity to get first team football in League 1 as it seems he is falling out of favour at Wigan. The Ex-Strasbourg striker has previously had loans with Blackpool and Wolves. Rotheram boss Steve Evans had this to say to the club website:
"Obviously the lad can score a goal and has the type of electric pace that will frighten defenders at any level of the game"
The striker got off to a flyer for the Millers as he guided in a Ben Pringle cross for his first goal as The Millers went on to beat finacial troubled Coventry 3-0 away from home. The 3 points puts Rotheram 7th level with Bradford who are in 6th who are on 28 points respectively. Whilst celebrating the win they claimed over Coventry, Steve Evans and the team are preparing themselves for the visit of Gillingham on Saturday.
There was joy for Rob Kiernan and Southend United as they overturned Portsmouth at Fratton Park 2-1 on a cold Tuesday night. Phil Brown's inform side have now won their last 5 and have fired themselves up to 3rd in the league whilst on Saturday they picked up the 3 points as they over came York City 2-1 at home. Rob Kiernan playing both games and putting in a good solid performance according to my associate who were at the games his ability to win headers was a particular highlight.
Fraser Fyvie and Yeovil Town suffered a crushing blow at fellow new boys Doncaster, the Glovers were beaten 2-1 at hands of a laste Mark Duffy free kick. Fyvie started the game after coming back from an injury that kept him out for 3 games but was subbed off just after the half hour mark after he had a free kick saved for "tactical reasons" according to manager Gary Johnson. Yeovil still find themselves at the bottom of the League on 9 points, 5 from safety as they prepare for the trip to Vicarage Road to take on Watford.
Jordan Mustoe returned from his loan at Bury. He made 6 appearances at Gigg Lane during his time there, and this has hopefully proved to be a productive move for the full back.
