Newcastle loan players continue to shine

Clean sheets, a goal and some more positive results for Newcastle's loan players highlight this past weekend.

Newcastle's loan players continue to perform well for their clubs as there is another goal to their name as well as another clean sheet.  More than that, they continue to get the experience that they needed in the first place, which is an improvement on some loan situations for Newcastle players in the past.

Freddie Woodman

Woodman's Crawley Town side earned a good three points in their League 2 campaign as they defeated Cambridge Untied who had entered the weekend toward the top of the league table.  The 3-0 scoreline represented the second consecutive clean sheet for Newcastle's England youth international goalkeeper.  This one seems to have been a little more straight forward than the midweek draw with Portsmouth in which Woodman was reported to have made a number of key saves to earn Crawley the point in a 0-0 draw.

Adam Armstrong

It was bound to happen.  After scoring 5 goals in his first 3 matches for Coventry City, Adam Armstrong finally failed to find the scoresheet for the Sky Blues in their 2-1 defeat to Walsall.  He still has an outside chance to chase down former Toon number 9 Micky Quinn's record goal-scoring start for Coventry (10 goals in 6), although it's going to take an average of a hat trick a game over the next two for him to get there now.

Sammy Ameobi

Sammy has still not cracked the Cardiff City starting lineup, but is regularly appearing as a substitute.  This last weekend, we saw progress on his rather remarkable goal-scoring target for the season start as he added the second in Cardiff's 2-0 victory over Wolves.  Minutes after having come on for injured Kenwyne Jones, he did this:

This gives us the chance to introduce this, the Sammy Ameobi Goals Goal-o-meter!
