Konstantin Kerschbaumer helped DSC Arminia Bielefeld continue their good start to the season on Saturday as they picked up another point. But he was the only one of Brentford’s on-loan players to get on to the pitch this weekend. The Bees have five players out with other clubs at the moment at various levels in England and abroad but only Konstantin was able to have an influence this weekend.
The attacking midfield man played the first 65 minutes as Arminia drew 1-1 with 1. FC Heidenheim in a 2. Bundesliga fixture on Saturday. Arminia fell behind but levelled to take a share of the spoils and ensure they keep pace on the edge of the promotion race. Arminia are sixth in the table at the moment having won four of their eight games. They are just two points outside the automatic promotion places.
Elsewhere, Jack Bonham, Tom Field, Reece Cole and Zain Westbrooke did not get on the pitch for their loan clubs. Jack was an unused substitute as Carlisle United beat Crewe Alexandra 5-0 on Saturday. That win takes Carlisle up to 15th in the Sky Bet League Two table and they face Stevenage tomorrow, Tuesday 26 September, as they try to build on that victory.
Tom was also on the bench as Bradford City beat Northampton Town 1-0 on Saturday. Bradford current sit third in the table, three points off the top and level on points with second-placed Peterborough United. They play Fleetwood Town at home tomorrow.
Reece was not involved as Newport County beat Grimsby Town 1-0. That win saw Newport climb to eighth in League Two ahead of a match away to Crawley Town tomorrow. Zain also sat out as Solihull Moors drew 2-2 with Dagenham and Redbridge in the Vanarama National League on Saturday. Solihull looked like they would take the win before Dagenham struck a last-gasp equaliser. Solihull sit in the relegation zone in the National League and their next match is away to Dover Athletic on Saturday.
Meanwhile, future Brentford player Emiliano Marcondes was involved as FC Nordsjælland were held to a draw on Friday. Emiliano will join The Bees in January when his contract expires and helped his current employers in to a 2-0 lead over SønderjyskE on Friday night, setting up the first goal. But SønderjyskE fought back and levelled at the death to earn a point. Nordsjælland remain top of the table with ten games played.
