IN another week full of exciting clashes up and down the country for our loan Rangers it was young defender Themis Kefalas who caught the headlines with his Barnet side.
On the back of what has been a disappointing campaign for the Bees, Kefalas was able to play his part in only their fourth victory of the campaign, before helping Simon Bassey’s side to a resolute goalless draw with Boreham Wood during the week.
Having starred in their 3-1 victory over Aldershot Town, the 20-year-old was then able to play his role in helping the Bee’s clinch only their fifth clean sheet of the season on Tuesday.
Barnet now head to a tough trip to Altrincham, as they look to continue this recent positive run of form.
As we head back up the leagues, both Mide Shodipo and Paul Smyth were in action for Oxford United and Accrington Stanley respectively, with both the Irish wingers having somewhat mixed weeks.
Initially, 23-year-old Shodipo played 65 minutes in Oxfords 3-2 victory over Gillingham on Saturday.
And then the winger was then able to grab an assist to give the U’s the lead at AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday, but after being reduced to ten men soon after, Shodipo was replaced in the 67th minute and Karl Robinson’s side left Plough Lane empty handed.
In contrast, Smyth played 76 minutes in Stanley’s 3-1 away defeat to Rochdale on Saturday, before being an unused substitute in their 2-0 home victory over Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday evening.
Elsewhere, Dillion Barnes (Burton Albion) and Conor Masterson (Swindon Town) have returned to us for rehab for their respective injuries.
In League Two, Aramide Oteh didn’t feature in Colchester United’s 2-1 win over Walsall and then was an unused substitute in their 2-0 victory over Southend United.
Lastly, shot stopper Liam Kelly’s Motherwell side we back in action this week, with a 1-0 victory over Lanarkshire rivals Hamilton in the SPL.
Mark O’Hara’s goal was enough to wrap up the victory and all but secure Motherwell’s place in the SPL for next season.
