Loan Rangers: Ingram suffers Wigan loss

MATT Ingram’s Northampton Town suffered a narrow defeat to League One leaders Wigan Athletic on New Year’s Day.

Ingram was in goal as the Cobblers suffered a 1-0 loss at home to the Latics thanks to Nick Powell’s fifth minute winner.

Ingram, who is on loan at the Sixfields Stadium until the end of the season, has made 19 appearances for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side who are 22nd in the table.

Meanwhile, Eberechi Eze ended his half season loan spell with Wycombe Wanderers in winning fashion.

Eze, who returned to Loftus Road earlier today following the completion of his time with the League Two side, played the 15 minutes of the Chairboys 2-1 win at Forest Green Rovers.

The 19-year-old departs with Gareth Ainsworth’s side fourth in the League Two table. His R’s teammate Jack Williams was an unused substitute.

Elsewhere in League Two, midfielder Brandon Comley was a second half substitute for Colchester United in their 0-0 draw with Shaun Derry’s Cambridge United.

Comley replaced Sean Murray in the 69th minute at the Weston Homes Community Stadium as the U’s dropped out of the top seven.

Defender Alex Finney has been ruled out for the remainder of his loan spell at Maidstone United after breaking his jaw in two places on Boxing Day.

His deal at the National League side was due to expire on 6th January but after the Under-23s centre-back underwent surgery last week he will miss the remainder of that deal.

Custodian Seny Dieng helped Whitehawk seal their first win of the season with a 4-1 victory against Eastbourne Borough.

The Under-23s keeper played the full 90 minutes for the National League South outfit who are still rooted to the foot of the table.

Finally, fellow Under-23s stopper Conor Hudnott made his debut for Staines Town in their 5-1 defeat against the Met Police.
