It’s midweek action in the EFL as we see more Yanks face off. This time it’s QPR, with Reggie Cannon and Charlie Kelman going up against Stoke City with Lynden Gooch. Elsewhere, Haji Wright scores for Coventry City to pick up their second win on the bounce. Queens Park Rangers 4-2 Stoke City Despite not […]
It’s a bit of a mediocre gameweek for the Yanks in the EFL. Despite heading into the 90th minute with the 1-0 lead, Duane Holmes’ Preston North End conceded two goals in quick succession in the 90’+6 and 90’+9, respectively. Elsewhere, Haji Wright’s Coventry City picked up their first win since the fourth of October, […]
Duane Holmes and Preston North End made it back-to-back wins after their disastrous run of poor form, with the latest victory coming in the 90th minute. Elsewhere, Haji Wright has been experimenting with a new position as a left winger, as Coventry City’s head coach looks to change his tactics.
Duane Holmes and Haji Wright both found themselves on the scoresheet as their respective teams, Preston North End and Coventry City, faced off in the Sky Bet Championship. Elsewhere, Reggie Cannon’s QPR settled for a lackluster draw against fellow relegation companion, Rotherham United. Preston North End 3-2 Coventry City Holmes scored once, Wright scored twice. […]
Charlie Kelman saw his name on the starting XI team sheet for the first time since August 5 against Watford. Elsewhere, Duane Holmes was substituted after 60 minutes as Preston North End fell to Hull City.
It wasn’t a fantastic weekend by any means for the Yanks in the EFL, as none of the Americans in action completed a full 90 minutes. Haji Wright was substituted in the 72nd minute in Coventry City’s one-all draw with Norwich, whereas Duane Holmes started on the bench and was brought on after the interval in PNE’s third consecutive loss.
It was an awfully quiet mid-week Sky Bet Championship from a Yank’s perspective, as once again, only two Americans played any minutes. Haji Wright finally ended his goal drought, while Duane Holmes and PNE suffered another massive defeat.
Overall, it was a quiet match week, but Lynden Gooch’s Stoke City managed to secure three crucial points for the first time since August 19. On the flip side, Duane Holmes’ Preston North End suffered their first league loss of the season.
It was a difficult weekend for our boys abroad in the lower tiers of the English football leagues, as no American contributed to a win for their respective clubs.
It’s midweek match day seven in the EFL Championship as we view our Yanks in the tiers below the Premier League in action.
