LUFC Leeds Loan Watch - Taxi for Rachubka!

Vital Leeds looks at how the loan players did in the games over the weekend.

Patrick Kisnorbo - Ipswich Town (Rest of season)
Kisnorbo was once again an unused substitute as Ipswich beat Blackpool 1-0 at Portman Road to ease their relegation worries.

After making his debut in the FA Cup defeat at Aston Villa, Kisnorbo has been an unused substitute in their last five Ipswich games.

Danny Pugh - Sheffield Wednesday (Rest of season)
Sheffield Wednesday had no game on Saturday due to Millwall still being involved in the FA Cup.

Pugh has made 3 appearances since arriving at Hillsborough.

Dominic Poleon - Sheffield United (Rest of season)
Poleon came off the bench after 58 minutes to make his debut for Sheffield United. Poleon completed his loan deal earlier in the day on a 93-day loan. The Blades were 1-0 up against Colchester when Poleon entered the field and they went on to win 3-0.

Zac Thompson - Bury (Rest of season)
Thompson played the 90 minutes for Bury as their relegation fears worsened with a 2-0 home defeat to Coventry City.

Bury are now five points from safety at the bottom of League One.

The midfielder has made 22 appearances for Bury in two spells since originally arriving at Gigg Lane in October.

Paul Connolly - Preston North End (Rest of season)
Connolly played no part for Preston as they caused an upset by beating top of the table Bournemouth 2-0 at Deepdale.

Connolly has made 4 appearances since signing for Preston.

Paul Rachubka - Accrington Stanley (Rest of season)
Rachubka had a ground open up and swallow me moment for Accrington on Friday night.

Accrington looked like they were going to grab a much-needed point at promotion chasing Exeter City.

The game was goalless with eleven minutes remaining when Exeter substitute Jimmy Keohane fired the home side ahead with Rachubka standing little chance. Three minutes later Keohane was on target again with a little help from Rachubka. The keeper tried to keep a poor back pass in play but all he could do was divert the ball to Jamie Cureton who set up Keohane for an easy tap in.

Rachubka has now made 8 appearances in his two spells with Stanley.

Charlie Taylor - Inverness Caledonian Thistle (Rest of season)
Taylor was an unused substitute for Caley as they were beaten 3-0 at Motherwell.

Taylor has made just one substitute appearance since arriving at Inverness.

Ross Killock - Alfreton Town (loan ends March)
Killock was an unused substitute for Alfreton as they slipped nearer the relegation places with a 2-1 home defeat to Macclesfield.

The 18-year-old has made 19 appearances with18 starts since joining them in October.

Alex Cairns - Stalybridge Celtic - (Loan ends March)
Cairns completed another 90 minutes for Celtic as they drew 2-2 at Boston United. Celtic twice led but had to settle for a point and they remain in mid table.

The 20-year-old has played 32 times for Celtic this season, keeping 7 clean sheets.

Nathan Turner - Chester FC (Rest of season)
Nathan once again completed 90 minutes as Chester moved a step closer to promotion from the Blue Square Bet North Division.

Two early goals set them on their way to a 2-1 win at Corby and they are now 16 points clear at the top of the table.

Nathan has made 10 appearances since joining them in November and he has scored one goal.

Lewis Turner - Chester FC (Rest of season)
Lewis is still waiting for his debut for Chester and he was once again left out of the sixteen for the game.
