Loan Watch: Great start for Blair

by Stuart Vose

We go around the grounds to catch up with loan prospects.

Blair Adams got his spell at Coventry off to a great start with a big away win on his debut over the weekend.

City ran out 5-0 winners over Hartlepool at Victoria Park, with Adams (pictured) playing the full 90 minutes after confirming his move to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday morning.

Sunderland striker Ryan Noble started for Hartlepool, who suffered defeat in John Hughes’ first game in charge.

Meanwhile Ahmed Elmohamady and David Meyler both featured as Hull City ran out 3-2 winners at Birmingham.

Elmohamady played the full 90 minutes while Meyler appeared as a 63rd-minute substitute as the Tigers held off a Blues comeback to retain fourth spot in the Npower Championship.

Steve Bruce’s side found themselves 3-0 up inside 34 minutes but were forced to hold out for the win after the hosts twice reduced the deficit.

But there was frustration for John Egan’s Bradford, with the defender playing 90 minutes of a 1-0 home defeat to Exeter.
