Loan Round-Up: Week 18

Westbrooke and Bonham in action

23 November 2017

In the National League, Zain Westbrooke played the second half in Leyton Orient's 2-2 draw with Chester FC. 

The O's went down to 10 men in the 43rd minute of the game, with the score 2-1 to Chester, but managed to fight back with Zain's help to draw the match. Jamie Sendles-White was the man shown red after bringing down an opponent in the penalty area. Goalkeeper Sam Sargeant stopped the spot-kick though, and it was Jobi McAnuff who levelled things on the hour.

The point kept Orient in 20th place, three clear of Chester in 21st, and nine away from bottom place Solihull Moors - the team Westbrooke joined on loan last season.

In League Two, Jack Bonham and Carlisle United suffered a 3-0 defeat to high-flying Luton Town.

The Hatters, who have scored seven or more goals at home on three occasions this season, had a spot-kick saved by Bonham in the 78th minute. Danny Hylton shot low but the keeper dived the right way and kept it out.

Defeat meant Carlisle now sit 12th in the table, five points away from Mansfield Town who occupy the last play-off spot. 

Both teams play again on Saturday 25 November. Carlisle host 22nd place Morecambe, while Leyton Orient travel to Torquay United who also find themselves toward the bottom of their division in 23rd.
