Loan Round-Up: Patrik beaten on Southend debut

The action for our players away from Griffin Park

24 February 2020

Patrik Gunnarsson's Southend United debut ended in a 3-2 Sky Bet League One defeat at home to Burton Albion on Saturday.

The 19-year-old joined The Shrimpers on an emergency loan last week and went straight into Sol Campbell's starting XI at Roots Hall. Lukas Akins gave Burton a fifth minute lead but a goalkeeping howler allowed Sam Mantom to level. Ryan Edwards and Jamie Murphy then netted for the visitors after the break to wrap up the points for the away side, despite a late John-Joe O'Toole consolation. 

Also in the third tier, Mads Bech Sorensen played the 90 minutes of AFC Wimbledon's goalless draw at home to Blackpool. Both sides had chances at Kingsmeadow but wasteful finishing meant it finished all square. The point leaves AFC eight clear of the relegation zone ahead of Saturday's trip to in-form Gillingham. 

Elsewhere, Justin Shaibu wasn't involved as a single Kabongo Tshimanga goal moved Boreham Wood up to third in the National League with a 1-0 win over Yeovil Town while Reece Cole and Partick Thistle saw their Scottish Championship clash against Dumfermline postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
