Kerschbaumer and Marcondes on target in European wins

This week's loan round-up also includes Zain Westbrooke and Jack Bonham

27 November 2017

In Denmark, Emiliano Marcondes was on the scoresheet twice in FC Nordsjælland's 6-0 win over Horsens. He got the opener with 17 minutes gone before scoring another from the spot after half an hour.

The result leaves the Danish club third in the Superliga, seven points clear of Hobro in fourth but six off top spot Brondby.

Elsewhere in Europe, Konstantin Kerschbaumer got himself on the scoresheet for Arminia Bielefeld. His side won 2-0 against bottom club Kaiserslautern, with Kersch in on the act in the 95th minute of time. 

The win saw Bielefeld rise three places up the 2. Bundesliga to sixth, now with only four points separating them and Nürnberg, Union Berlin and Ingolstadt in third, fourth and fifth respectively.

Next up for the Germans are eighth-place St. Pauli at home on Friday 1 December, while The Danes travel to play FC Copenhagen on Sunday 3 December.

In England, both Jack Bonham and Zain Westbrooke were involved in fixtures this weekend.

Bonham, on loan at Carlisle United, played 90 minutes in a dramatic 1-1 draw with Morecambe in League Two. After taking the lead through Kelvin Etuhu, the game was levelled when Steven Old deflected an Andrew Fleming shot beyond Bonham in a crowded penalty area.

Then referee Darren Handley awarded the visitors a penalty in the dying minutes, when Bonham was judged to have brought down Sam Lavelle. Controversy reigned as the home players suggested Lavelle had very little reason to hit the floor. Nevertheless, Morecambe couldn't convert the kick, with Adam Campbell hitting the bar from 12 yards.

The point leaves Carlisle in 14th place, with a trip to Gillingham in the Second Round of The FA Cup next weekend.

Zain Westbrooke played the first half of Leyton Orient's 3-0 defeat away at Torquay United. The home side proved too strong for The O's, who were reduced to ten men in the final stages of the game.

Orient are now 20th in the National League, hovering over the relegation places. Bottom of the table Solihull Moors are next on the agenda for Westbrooke and the East Londoners.
