Atkinson, Sinnott and Spencer play further games
The three Town players out on loan all furthered their senior experience over the weekend – and will be hoping to play in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tonight.
Midfielder Atkinson continued his ever-present record for League 1 Tranmere Rovers on Saturday as they recorded their first league win of the season, beating Oldham Athletic 1-0 at Boundary Park.
That three point haul lifted Tranmere to 18th in the League 1 table.
Chris has now played in all of Tranmere’s seven competitive first team games this season and he’ll be hoping to continue that streak when Rovers host Fleetwood Town in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tonight.
Jimmy made his second appearance as a substitute for League 2 Scunthorpe United on Saturday, replacing fellow striker Deon Burton in the 75th minute of the Iron’s 1-1 home draw with Newport County.
He’ll be hoping to make his first start for Scunthorpe during tonight’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy game at home to League 1 Sheffield United and today told scunthorpeunited.co.uk:
“I’ve been here just over a week now, and it’s been good so far. The lads have settled me in well and it all seems good at the minute! Game time is important but I really want to score goals for the club and make a name for myself.”
Due to Bury’s impressive performance in their Capital One Cup game at Norwich City in midweek, Jordan found himself on the bench on Saturday and appeared as a 77th minute substitute during their 4-1 home win over Cheltenham Town in League 2.
That’s taken Jordan’s appearance numbers to two starts and two substitute appearances for the Shakers, who now sit 10th in League 2.
Jordan could find himself back in the team tonight when Bury play at Port Vale in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
