PNE Loan Round-Up

6 February 2014

The latest update on how Preston North End’s loan players have been doing recently.

The last two weeks have been a busy time in and around Deepdale with three players being added to the current crop that were already out on loan.

League One
John Mousinho returned to his former Club Stevenage in the final hours of transfer deadline day and immediately went straight into their starting line-up on Tuesday.

The midfielder, who has only recently returned from a hamstring injury, played 74 minutes as the Boro beat Gillingham 3-1.

Ironically, Mousinho had been on loan with the Gills earlier in the season and scored the winner as they beat Stevenage in the first round of fixtures during 2013/14.

It has been a busy time of late for the Minstermen, with three matches played and a mixed bag of results to boot.

Davies had been a main stay in the City side this season and continued in that vein playing 90 minutes in all three fixtures; two defeats against Hartlepool and Chesterfield respectively and a victory over Graham Alexander’s Fleetwood Town at Highbury Stadium.

Hayhurst played 35 minutes of that defeat to Chesterfield – being booked in the process, but he made a more positive impact against the Cod Army when playing the full match, his corner headed into his own goal by another man familiar to PNE fans Conor McLaughlin.

Another piece of good news is the return to action of Shane Cansdell-Sherriff.

The central defender suffered a horror cheekbone injury on New Year’s Day, but made his return in a 1-1 draw at home to Exeter City for Burton Albion on Saturday.

Nicky Wroe has been the busiest of all the PNE loanees in the past fortnight, playing 90 minutes in four consecutive games against Torquay United, Exeter, AFC Wimbledon and Bury.

And his contribution has been telling, Oxford United going unbeaten in all four.

Striker Chris Beardsley has also been busy, after playing 89 minutes in a 3-1 win over Newport County, Beardo came off the bench for the final 14 in a 1-0 home defeat to Accrington Stanley, before playing the full 90 in a 3-1 defeat to Chesterfield.

Graham Cummins has been in fourth round FA Cup action, playing the final 23 minutes as Sheffield Wednesday came away from Spotland victorious by two goals to one, the win setting up a last 16 tie with Charlton Athletic.

The Irishman also came off the bench for 24 minutes in a 1-0 defeat at home to Dagenham and Redbridge.

Steven James has gone out on loan again, this time to Nantwich Town.

The shot stopper has joined the Dabbers as a replacement for PNE Academy goalkeeping coach Jack Cudworth, who has signed for Welsh Premier League side Bangor City.

James made his debut on Tuesday night, in a 3-2 home win against Rushall Olympic.
