Rolando Aarons - Wycombe Wanderers (LW)

Appearances: 5

Goals: 0

Assists: 0

Aarons started getting a lot more minutes in October. He saw is first start against the mackems in League One. But all in all, 2 starts in the league, and 2 sub appearances and 1 start in the EFL Trophy. Some good signs, but not much to show for it overall.

Wycombe currently sit in 2nd place in League One on 33 points.

Dan Barlaser - Rotherham United (CM)

Appearances: 5

Goals: 0

Assists: 0

Dan got involved in the action this month with 3 starts and 2 sub appearances. Seems a pretty average loan spell for him so far. Still no goals or assists.

Rotherham sit in 10th place in League One on 24 points.

Liam Gibson - Grimsby Town (LB)

Appearances: 3

Goals: 0

Assists: 0

Clean Sheets: 4

Liam is still a consistent starter for Grimsby. He has great control on the ball and seldom makes mistakes. Another clean sheet in this month and I expect him to continue getting minutes with this squad.

Grimsby Town currently sit in 18th place in League Two on 19 points.

Nathan Harker - Blyth Spartans (GK)

Appearances: 6

Goals Against Average/Match: 2

Clean Sheets: 1

The bad continues for Harker. He had a terrible month in August and he only got one chance in September, and 0 chances in October. He hasnt played since the beginning of September. Tough spell.

Blyth currently sits in 21st in the National League North on 12 points

Achraf Lazaar - Cosenza (LB)

Appearances: 2

Goals: 0

Assists: 0

Clean Sheets: 0

Lazaar has not appeared in a match since September 24th. As Cosenza continue to struggle, they still dont look to him for any play time.

Cosenza currently sit in 16th (out of 20) in Serie B on 12 points.

Cardiff City v Sheffield Wednesday - Sky Bet Championship - Cardiff City Stadium

Jacob Murphy - Sheffield Wednesday (RW)

Appearances: 12

Goals: 1

Assists: 0

Jacob hasn’t gotten much playing at all. It seems to be a trend with NUFC players. 52 minutes of playing time total in 3 matches. Hoping for a better November, but it seems like Jacob isnt developing into a better player.

Sheffield Wednesday currently sit in 8th place in the Championship Table on 25 points

Elias Sorensen - Carlisle United (ST)

Appearances: 9

Goals: 0

Assists: 1

Our Danish Prince only made 2 appearances in October, coming up with an assist in the EFL trophy. There has been a lot of recent press about the lack of playing time given to Elias the manager at Carlisle understands the need for NUFC to have him develop. This seems like another sad situation.

Carlisle United currently sit in 19th in the League Two table on 18 points.

Kelland Watts - Stevenage (CB)

Appearances: 17

Goals: 0

Assists: 0

Clean Sheets: 3

Kelland Watts has been a surprise player for this season. He was a stalwart defensive player. But this month has been even more impressive and interesting. Watts has started in all 7 matches this past month, but only 2 of them have been on the back line. He has played CM and LM in the other starts. Kelland has certainly been up for the challenge. Stevenage are not doing well, and their strategy is to put their best players in playmaking situations.

Stevenage currently sits last in 23rd place in the League Two table on 13 points.

Freddie Woodman - Swansea City (GK)

Appearances: 14

Goals against/match: .92

Clean Sheets: 5

Freddie is still dominating the Championship. Saving pens, clean sheets and an absolute fan favorite. A lot of Swans hope that Freddie becomes their permanent signing and becomes England’s #1. 2 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses this month is not ideal, but the saves Freddie has made has kept Swans in nearly every match.

Swansea City currently sit in 4th place in the Championship table on 29 points.
