A look at how Grecians are getting on away from St James Park

CITY FAN Exiled Grecian delivers an update on the Grecians on loan away from St James Park.

Connor Riley-Lowe
Truro City, National League South (Joined in July, six-month loan extended until the end of the season)

Connor missed Truro's game on Saturday due to a foot injury.
 
Stats
League: 24 starts, 2 goals, 2116 minutes.
FA Cup: 3 starts, 252 minutes.
FA Trophy: 4 starts, 258 minutes.
Last game
6th February: Wealdstone 4-4 Truro, played 90 mins.
 
Matt Jay
Truro City, National League South (Joined in January, one-month loan extended to the end of the season)

Truro managed to hold league leaders Ebbsfleet to a 1-1 draw in very windy conditions on Saturday. The visitors had the better of a pretty uneventful opening period, but on the stroke of half time Anthony Acheampong's backpass was completely missed by Ebbslfeet's 'keeper and gave Steve Tully's men the lead against the run of play. And just minutes into the second half, the visitors were reduced to 10 men as Matt Fish saw red for a lunge on Matt Jay, who has extended his loan until the end of the season. Ollie Knowles then hit the post for Truro before Acheampong made amends by equalising with half an hour to go. Truro would go on to have a scrap in the box cleared on the line, as Ebbslfeet held on to their unbeaten away record.
 
Truro have now only lost once in their last twenty games and are unbeaten at home since August, a month in which they suffered four of their five defeats this season. Their game against Concord Rangers on Tuesday night has already been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Alex Byrne
Weston-super-Mare, National League South (Joined in July, six-month loan extended until the end of the season)
 
After having gone nine games unbeaten, Weston lost their second league game in the space of a week when they lost at home to Wealdstone on Saturday. The Seagulls started off brightly, as Joe McGlennon blasted home a twenty-five-yard screamer. But Wealdstone were level 20 minutes later when Marvin Morgan latched onto a through ball down the middle. And the game was over when Ollie Barnes of Weston was caught in posession by Jonny Wright, who then fed Scott Davies to score the winner after rounding the 'keeper. Weston couldn't make the most of having the wind in their favour and Wealdstone comfortably saw out the remaining thirty-five minutes.
 
Alex played another full ninety minutes as Weston only named three substitutes on the bench. He's now settled in as a regular starter for the Seagulls and will be looking to help them avoid relegation in the remaining fifteen matches.
 
Stats
League: 22 appearances, 17 starts, 1563 minutes.
FA Cup: 2 starts.
FA Trophy: 3 starts, 270 minutes.
Last game
20th February: W-s-M 1-2 Wealdstone, played 90 minutes.
 
Jason Pope
Weston-super-Mare, National League South (Joined in July, six-month loan renewed)

Jason returned to the starting XI after an injury to his wrist had kept him out of Weston's last two games. He was eventually substituted for Sydney Camper on sixty-three minutes as the hosts went looking for an equaliser. Manager Ryan Northmore said after the game that they had tried to bring in more players on loan to no avail, as Weston continue to struggle for players due to injuries and suspension. Jason will be hoping he can make the most of the situation and get himself a run in the first-team.
 
Weston now sit one point above the relegation zone and host Chelmsford, who are above the Seagulls only on goal difference, this Saturday.

Stats
League: 4 appearances, 3 starts, 229 minutes
FA Trophy: 0 starts, 2 games, 46 minutes
Last game
