Loan Watch: Mendez-Laing assist for Posh in draw

Several of the Wolves players that are out on-loan played this weekend.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing started for Peterborough United against Exeter away and did it well.

Just before the half our Nat made the goal that took Posh to the lead by a cross that was headed into the net by an Exeter player.

Ten minute later he had a shot on goal that was saved by the Exeter keeper Paul Jones and a couple of minutes before halftime he headed the ball over the crossbar.

But Exeter equalised and got ahead in the second half before Tomlin – the player who replaced Nat Mendez-Laing in the 67th minute – could grab an equaliser for Posh just before 80 minutes was gone and two all became the end result.

Both managers were very pleased with the result and with a very good and entertaining match. Nice! That seem to happen more and more seldom in these days.

At Banks’s  Walsall were beaten by two goals against one by Swindon.

Sheehan scored the first for Swindon after only ten minutes, It took the Saddlers close to half an hour into the second half to equalise when Reuben Reid – a player from a little team down the road managed to get a ball in.

But just a couple of minutes later Pericard – who once played for Juventus – gave Swindon the victory. reports say that Swindon was the better team on the day and deserved the win.

David Davis – on loan from Wolves to the Saddlers – was substituted a couple of minutes after the winning goal for Swindon. I have no records about his performance.

To the Championship, then.

Leicester City – with Carl Ikeme still in goal – lost out to QPR with 2-0. High flying striker Jamie Mackie outwitted Carl twice – once with a header from a cross and the other time with a strike from up close.

None of the goals  were caused by errors from Carl Ikeme. In fact he did a couple of good saves during the game.

Cardiff City did not fare better. Andy Keogh played all ninety for the team, but could not find the goal. He played together with former Wolves striker Jay Bothroyd, who was back after injury.

They played Roy Keane’s side Ipswich and the Tractor Boys scored a first goal after half of the first half when the for Wolves fans well known winger Carlos Edwards crossed the ball and young Cardiff debuting Matthews headed the ball into his own net.

Cardiff manager Jones were not pleased with this – in fact he was fuming after the game at many of his players – longing for his injured players to be back in contention.

Bothroyd and Whittingham had chances to equalise before Ipswich scored a second with a drive from close range from Jason Scotland.

But the Cardiff fans knows that they have a very competitive team when their injured players are back. First of all they long for Bellamy and former Wolves midfielder Olofinjana.

A short mentioning of our tall bloke Stefan Maierhofer in MSV Duisburg. They played and lost today against FC Erzgebirge Aue (?!)

The Hoff was close to score after 40 minutes, but the shot was blocked. After 65 minutes a player in ‘Aue’ got a red card and a minute later a MSV player was taken off the pitch aswell.

Five minutes later Aue scored and took the lead. Just a minute later The Hoff had a chance at goal but missed it. The match ended surprisingly with an only goal loss for MSV Duisburg.

No news about the recovery from injury of Sam Vokes who is out on-loan to Bristol City.
