Loan Round-Up: Manny Onariase makes Checkatrade Trophy progress

11 January 2017

Check in with the progress of The Bees' loan players

Manny Onariase and Cheltenham Town breezed into the Third Round of the Checkatrade Trophy after a 6-1 win over Leicester City Under-23s at the LCI Rail Stadium last night. The Robins took a ninth minute lead through Diego De Girolamo but were instantly pegged back by last year's league winners: Bartosz Kapustka on target for The Foxes. After that it was plain sailing for Gary Johnson's side with former Bee Daniel O'Shaughnessy netting a second and De Girolamo making it 3-1 before the break. Harry Pell and Amari Morgan-Smith were on target in the second-half before De Girolamo completed his hat-trick in the dying minutes.

Manny played the full 90 minutes in last night's win as The Robins set up a Third Round tie at home to Bradford City later this month. Cheltenham return to league action on Saturday hoping to improve on a run of six defeats in seven when Accrington Stanley head to Gloucestershire.
