Loan Roun-Up: Kersch on target again as DSC Arminia Bielefeld win

The latest update on our quartet away from Griffin Park

19 February 2018

It was another good weekend for our four players out on loan with two wins, one draw, and just the one defeat for the loan quartet.

In Germany, Konstantin Kerschbaumer was on target for the second time in three games as DSC Arminia Bielefled jumped to fifth in the 2.Bundesliga after a 2-0 win over struglling SV Darmstadt 98 on Saturday. Patrick Weihrauch tapped DSC into a first-half lead at the SchücoArena with Konstantin making the game safe in second-half injury-time, netting his seventh of the season on the counter-attack. The three points lifts DSC up to fifth, just three points off the promotion spots, with a home game against Dynamo Dresden to look forward to on Friday. 

Back in England, Jack Bonham kept his fourth clean sheet in seven games as Carlisle United eased past relegation threatened Chesterfield in Sky Bet League Two. The Cumbrians wrapped up the points thanks to goals from Kelvin Etuhu and John O'Sullivan with Jack remaining largely untroubled between the posts. The three points leaves Keith Curle's side 13th in the table, eight points outside the Play-Offs, ahead of tomorrow's trip to bottom-of-the-table Barnet. 

Also in League Two, Ilias Chatzitheodoridis played the full 90 minutes as Cheltenham Town were beaten 2-0 by Wycombe Wanderers at the LCI Rail Stadium on Saturday. Both goals came late in the first-half as Adebayo Akinfenwa scored one and teed up Paris Cowan-Hall for the other in The Chairboys comfortable win. Defeat leaves Gary Johnson's side in 16th but they still have a 12-point cushion over the relegation places as they prepare for this weekend's trip to league-leaders Luton Town. 

Finally, in Sky Bet League One Justin Shaibu was a late substitute for Walsall as they took a point from their visit to in-form Gillingham on Saturday. The home side dominated the game but found Saddlers goalkeeper Liam Roberts in inspired form as he kept The Gills at bay. The point inches Walsall nearer to safety as third-placed Blackburn Rovers head to The Banks' Stadium on Saturday.
