It was a hectic weekend for those Norwich City operators currently plying their trade elsewhere, with the Canaries talent getting plenty of minutes under their belts for their respective clubs this weekend whilst out on loan.

Left-back James Husband kick-started the weekend for the on-loan City exports, playing a full 90 minutes in Blackpool's 2-1 victory over Lincoln City on Friday.

Husband was a prominent figure throughout, completing a series of interceptions and offering constant support down the left-hand side. He came close to scoring in the first half, but his volley went wide. Fellow City loanee Rocky Bushiri was an unused substitute in the victory.

Across the Atlantic, defender Caleb Richards continues to get regular minutes for the Tampa Bay Rowdies.

Richards was involved for the entirety of their 2-2 draw against Louisville City. Richards continues to play on the left of a back three in the states.

Carlton Morris was ineffective in Rotherham United's 1-0 defeat to Bristol Rovers and was replaced in the 68th minute by manager Paul Warne. Morris spearheaded the front three in a 4-3-3 formation but was unable to leave a lasting impact on the game.

Portsmouth's form has been indifferent this season with City loanee Sean Raggett having to display patience so far. He was rewarded with his first start in Pompey's 1-0 victory over Bolton at Fratton Park, helping them keep a clean sheet.
