Ryan Seager scored the first goal of his career outside of Southampton's youth teams as his strike secured a deserved point for his Crewe Alexandra side against Rochdale at Deepdale.

Not all good news for Seager

Although he scored his first goal last night, it wasn't all positive news for Seager as the Crewe loanee picked up what looked like a horrendous injury as he was stretchered off before half-time. He appeared to twist his ankle into the turf, going down without any contact, before getting replaced by Callum Saunders.

His side did manage to dig deep and pick up a 2-2 draw to take another crucial point towards their hopes of surviving in League one. Whilst he will hope the injury won't keep him out for very long , it will be of huge disappointment as he had been settling in really well and to secure his first goal was just the start.

McQueen unable to prevent loss

Sam McQueen came on for the final half-an-hour, but was unable to prevent his Southend United side's defeat away to fellow play-off chasers Bradford City. Southend now sit in seventh place in the table, which is three points off the play-off places.

McQueen has made three appearances for the League One side since joining in January and notched up his first goal in their win over Colchester United. McQueen will be looking to build up some more fantastic appearances and gain the vital experience in the Football League which will help him in his development, before returning back to parent club Southampton for pre-season.

Other loanees no mid-week game

The Saints currently have four other young players out on loan in the Football league, Jason McCarthy at Wycombe in League Two, with Jordan Turnball, Jack Stephens and Lloyd Isgrove all out on loan in League One at Swindon, Coventry and Barnsley respectively.

None of the four players are in action this mid-week but have all been performing incredibly well on their respective loan deals and are all showing that they are destined for fantastic careers whether that is in the Football League or back at parent club Southampton.
