Southampton loan round-up: Turnball and Isgrove get more minutes under their belts

It was a largely successful weekend for the Southampton Under-21 players who were in action in the Football League as two of them got victories and another tasted defeat.

Much needed win for Turnball 

Firstly, Jordan Turnball's Swindon secured a thrilling 3-2 win against Blackpool at the County Ground to lift them to 15th place in the table.

The result took Swindon nine points clear of the drop-zone and they sit just ten points off the play-off places, with 14 games remaining in the regular season.

The win came courtesy of a brilliant hat-trick from Nicky Ajose and it was another fine showing from the young Southampton defender at the heart of defence.

Barnsley back to winning ways

Lloyd Isgrove played for an hour as Barnsley got back to winning ways once again, seeing off local rivals Doncaster 1-0.

The player who replaced Isgrove, Ashley Fletcher, scored the winner in the 81st minute from close-range.

The Yorkshire club are now 10th in the table, and sit seven points off of the play-off places ahead of their trip to Bury on Tuesday night.

Wycombe lose out narrowly to leaders

Jason McCarthy's Wycombe lost out to Northampton in the top of the table clash in League two on Saturday afternoon.

The loss dropped Wycombe all the way down to eighth with 15 games remaining in the regular season.

Duo in action in coming days

Sam McQueen and Gaston Ramirez will both hope to help their sides to much needed victories in the next couple of days.

McQueen's Southend weren't in action at the weekend and instead play tonight against top of the table Burton Albion at Roots Hall.

As for Ramirez his Middlesbrough will hope to return back to the top of the Championship tomorrow night when they welcome Cardiff City.

Ramirez wasn't in action at the weekend as his side's game against Reading was postponded due to them playing an FA Cup tie against West Brom.

Stephens news

Jack Stephen's Coventry weren't in action at the weekend, but they will next play on Saturday when they face Fleetwood Town at the Richo Arena.
