It was an enduring weekend for Norwich City's loan exports, with not a single player on the right end of a result. There was a familiar Canaries name on the scoresheet as Danel Sinani's Waasland-Beveren lost 3-0 to Royal Antwerp in Belgium however.

Sinani has been in and out of the starting XI in recent weeks, but was deployed as a left-winger in the fixture against the four-time Belgian champions. The Luxembourg international played 90 minutes. 

Former City striker Dieumerci Mbokani scored the third goal on the stroke of half-time. The 35-year-old netted his seventh league goal after capitalising on a loose back pass and rounding the keeper to tap in.

Sam McCallum continues his run in Coventry City's starting XI after playing the entirety of their 1-0 loss to Sheffield Wednesday. The 20-year-old enjoyed a competitive battle with opposite number Kadeem Harris and looked solid defensively. His long throws were a useful weapon for the Sky Blues. 

Blackburn Rovers lost 1-0 to Stoke City on Saturday with City loanee Tom Trybull starting in central midfield.

The German offered stability in midfield but left plenty to be desired from a defensive perspective. Some Rovers supporters want to see an increased tempo in his play whilst they are in possession.

Speculation of a January move persists for Carlton Morris at MK Dons and Russell Martin's side have suffered consecutive defeats in League One. The 25-year-old failed to get on the scoresheet as Dons were beaten 1-0 by Plymouth Argyle.
