After a horrendous injury list last week, several of Everton’s out-on-loan players returned to action this week, with two young players catching the eye as they look to form a winning defensive partnership...

The Youngsters

Kieran Dowell – Wigan Athletic

Set to miss the next month with an ankle injury.

Nathan Broadhead – Burton Albion

After a long injury lay-off, Broadhead was finally back amongst the action for Burton this week. On Tuesday, he started on the right wing and played 66 minutes of their 2-2 draw with Oxford United, before making a 12-minute cameo from the bench in a 4-1 defeat to Oxford.

You can see him in action (number 9) against Oxford below.

Jonjoe Kenny – Schalke 04

After a couple of games out with injury, Jonjoe Kenny regained the right-back spot as Schalke were held to a goalless draw at FC Mainzon Sunday.

Josh Bowler – Hull City

Out until April with a heel injury.

Korede Adedoyin – Hamilton Academical

Still yet to make a senior appearance for Hamilton.

Fraser Hornby – KV Kortrijk

Really struggling for game time in Belgium. Got just 4 minutes in their midweek fixtures, before he watched on from the bench on Saturday.

Callum Connolly – Fleetwood Town

Fleetwood Town are flying right now, with Callum Connolly and Lewis Gibson at the back for Joey Barton’s side – winning four on the bounce to push them into League One play-off contention.

Connolly played the full 90 minutes at centre-back in their 1-0 win over Wycombe in midweek, before scoring the opener in the 2-1 win over Peterborough with an emphatic finish at the weekend.

Lewis Gibson – Fleetwood Town

Gibson’s 100% winning record at Fleetwood continues and he’s played every minute as the left of three centre backs.

Morgan Feeney – Tranmere Rovers

No further update on Feeney’s severe hamstring injury which could rule him out for the rest of the season.

The Deadwood

Luke GarbuttIpswich Town

Returned earlier than expected from an injury to play the full 90 minutes on the left wing as Ipswich thumped Burton 4-1.

Matthew Pennington – Hull City

Returned from injury to make just his third league start of the season for Hull (and his first at centre-back) but was part of a chaotic 4-4 thriller against Swansea on Friday night.

Mo Besic – Sheffield United

Along with Everton, Sheffield United have been enjoying a break this week.

Shani Tarashaj - Emmen

Not played a minute this season.

Sandro Ramirez – Real Valladolid

Didn’t get off the bench as Valladolid lost 2-1 to Granada.

Yannick Bolasie – Sporting Lisbon

Returned to the Sporting Lisbon starting line-up and won a late penalty to earn his side a 1-1 draw with Rio Ave.

Cenk Tosun – Crystal Palace

Palace are also enjoy their winter break, so no action for Tosun who is recovering from a hamstring injury.

Jonas Lössl – Huddersfield Town

Remains first choice for Huddersfield, as they lost 3-0 to Cardiff in midweek before holding Derby to a 1-1 draw at Pride Park.
