Loans: Battle of the Reds

Two Reds were in direct opposition on Saturday as Oliver Norwood's Coventry were beaten by Scott Wootton's Nottingham Forest in a local derby in the Championship.

Wootton played the first half at right-back for a Forest side battling to beat the drop while Norwood "bossed the midfield for most of the game" according to The Daily Mirror, despite ending upon the losing team. The Mirror added: "The youngster, on loan from Manchester United, looked a good prospect as he broke up play and passed the ball well with simplicity and accuracy."

Ryan Tunnicliffe came on as a substitute for Peterborough in their important 3-0 victory against Bristol City. The energetic midfielder played the final 13 minutes and forced a fine save out of visiting keeper David James.

John Cofie's Royal Antwerp defeated KSV Roeselare thanks to a brace from Freddy Mombongo.
