Luka Racic in action as Northampton exit Carabao Cup

The latest round-up on our players out on loan

18 September 2020

Luka Racic played 45 minutes for Northampton Town last night as they exited the Carabao Cup at the Second-Round stage with a 4-0 defeat at Ashton Gate.

The central defender played the first half for Keith Curle’s side, and despite a strong display for much of that period, they went in at the break behind to Chris Martin’s goal.

Town shuffled the pack for the second period and Luka was substituted at the break before City managed to score another three goals with Kasey Palmer netting twice and Antoine Semenyo also scoring to complete the 4-0 score line.

That was the only action last night for our players away from West London, but Viborg FF were in league action as they beat Kolding IF 4-2 at home but Patrik Gunnarsson was not involved in the fixture. Viborg are now third in the Danish First Division with four points from their first two matches.

Jaakko Oksanen was involved in some game time earlier this week when The Dons travelled to play a friendly against a Chelsea XI. The midfielder played the full 90 minutes against a Chelsea side which featured a mix of youth and experience, including the likes of Danny Drinkwater and Victor Moses.

The match finished 1-1 with Wimbledon going ahead through a Trialist before a Moses penalty in the second period levelled things. Wimbledon will now prepare for their home match with Plymouth Argyle at home this Saturday with Jaakko pushing for more minutes.

Joel Valencia could feature for his loan side Legia Warsaw for the first time this weekend when they welcome Górnik Zabrze in the league. The side are currently fourth in the table with six points from their first two games.

Julian Jeanvier could well be in contention to once again feature for Turkish side Kasimpasa when they welcome Rizespor with an opportunity for the defender to get his first minutes at their home stadium.

Arthur Read could also gain more minutes in SkyBet League Two on Saturday afternoon for Stevenage as they play their first home league match of the season when they welcome Oldham Athletic to The Lamex Stadium.
