Minutes for two strikers in midweek

The latest action for our players away from Griffin Park

31 October 2019

There were minutes off the bench for two of our strikers away from Griffin Park in midweek.

In Holland, Halil Dervişoğlu played the final 12 minutes as Sparta Rotterdam made progress in the KNVB Cup with a 1-0 win at home to second tier side FC Volendam. Lars Veldwijk scored the only goal midway through the first-half as Sparta avoided an upset in Round One. 

Also coming off the bench was Justin Shaibu as Boreham Wood drew 0-0 at home to Aldershot in the National League. The striker, who turned 22 earlier this week, played the final quarter of an hour as Wood and The Shots drew blanks at Meadow Park. Boreham Wood have won just one of their last four to drop five points off the top six. 

Reece Cole missed Partick Thistle's 1-0 defeat to Dundee United in the Scottish Championship through injury. Lawrence Shankland's 17th of the season consigned The Jags to a defeat which leaves them propping up the second tier, two points from safety.
