SAFC Loan Round-up

SAFC Loan Round-up
Sunderland's loanees had a bad time of it in the F.A Cup 3rd round with only Nyron Nosworthy and Watford tasting victory.

The big defender played his final game for the Hornets in a 4-2 win over Bradford before heading back to Wearside following the completion of his loan spell.

Also in the F.A Cup, Crystal Palace's John Egan made his professional debut in a much-changes Eagles line-up.

Dougie Freedman's side paid the price, losing 1-0 at divisional rivals, Derby County.

George McCartney and West Ham were involved in something of an upset as the Irons lost 1-0 to a Chris O'Grady goal for Sheffield Wednesday.

The League One high-fliers saw Nicky Weaver save a penalty before O'Grady snatched a famous win.

Back in Football League action, Blair Adams is enjoying a turnaround at League Two strugglers, Northampton Town.

Adams has helped Aidy Boothroyd's strugglers to four points from a possible six with a draw at Shrewsbury and a win at Morecombe.

Finally, in more wide-spread loan news, Asamoah Gyan has shaken off a thigh strain to join his Ghanaian team-mates at their training camp before the African Cup of Nations begins.
