There was plenty of action again for Everton’s out-on-loaners, with Matthew Pennington having a particularly interesting day.
Read on for what is effectively a repeat of last week’s loan recap.
Following Galatasaray’s 3-0 loss at the weekend, Onyekuru was dropped to the bench again for their home clash with Erzurumspor on Friday night.
With the score goalless, Onyekuru entered the fray on 65 minutes, and helped his side grab a winner 10 minutes later. The Nigerian international looked dangerous with his pace on the break.
Robinson continues to be an ever-present at left-back for Wigan, but it was a quiet day for the youngster as his side fell to a 1-0 defeat at Norwich.
Connolly emerged from the bench against Norwich, playing the final 15 minutes in a holding midfield role.
Another 90 minutes for Vlasic as CSKA earned a 1-0 away win at Orenburg, although he moved to a right attacking midfield role, rather than the central position he has thrived at in recent weeks.
Returning to his favoured holding midfield role, Joe Williams put in an Idrissa Gana Gueye-esque performance as Bolton Wanderers beat Derby 1-0. Williams made seven tackles, three interceptions and two blocks against Frank Lampard’s side.
Pennington kept his place at right-back for their trip to Birmingham with manager, Paul Hurst, praising the youngster – especially his fitness and attitude – while admitting he may continue to use Pennington at right-back for the long-term.
The afternoon couldn’t have got off to a better start for Pennington, turning in a corner to put Ipswich 2-0 up at half-time. However, Birmingham made it 2-2 in the second half, and Pennington saw red after receiving two late yellows.
The Welsh captain’s miserable 2018 continued, as despite returning to Stoke’s starting eleven, he gave away a penalty and then lost his man from a corner as Rotherham went 2-0 up. Stoke pulled it back late on to pick up a point.

Emerged from the bench for the final 15 minutes of Boro’s 1-1 draw at Hull.
Likewise, came off the bench again for the final 15 minutes in Villa’s 1-1 draw at Bristol City.
After recovering from a knee injury, Sandro made his Sociedad debut, coming on at half-time in their 1-0 home defeat to Valencia.
