Weekend Loan Preview


Eight Cats set for loan action.

Danny Graham will look to build on his first goal for Hull City as the Tigers host Stoke City on Saturday evening.

A win for Steve Bruce’s side against the Potters could move the Tigers ahead of tenth whilst the Staffordshire outfit could also move into the top-half.

Elsewhere, Alfred N’Diaye’s Eskisehirspor could move into the top four of the Turkish Super League with a win at Kayserispor on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Lightnings are unbeaten in their last three games whilst Kayserispor are struggling in 17th place with just one win in five games.

Meanwhile, Connor Wickham’s Sheffield Wednesday travel to Watford in the Championship as the Owls look to close the gap on fellow strugglers Charlton Athletic to just one point.

Wednesday currently lie 23rd in the Championship whilst Watford can move within three points of the playoffs if they end their eight-game winless run.

David Vaughan could return to Nottingham Forest’s squad as Billy Davies’ side host Ipswich at the City Ground on Saturday.

Forest have picked up four points from their last two games and could move fourth with a win over their playoff chasing rivals.

Mick McCarthy’s Tractor Boys would leapfrog Forest if they can record their fourth successive win.

In League Two, Scott Harrison will hope to make his Bury debut as the Shakers host bottom of the table Northampton Town at Gigg Lane.

Harrison is yet to feature for Bury since joining last month as the Manchester-based outfit are yet to play in a league match in that time.

Billy Knott is also in action as Wycombe Wanderers host Scunthorpe at Adams Park looking to close the gap on the playoff places to six points.

The Chairboys failed to build on their great start to the campaign and are now on a seven-game winless run.

In Non-League, Liam Marrs’ Boston United travel to Skrill Premier outfit Tamworth in the FA Trophy second round proper.

Marrs’ side ply their trade a division below the Lambs in the Skrill North and the Pilgrims will look to provide another upset after beating Southport in the previous round.

Joel Dixon is also in action as Workington host Telford in the Skrill North with the Reds needing a win to move away from the drop zone.
