Leeds United loan watch: Cibicki assist, O’Connor ‘superb’ and Wilks scores

How did the loanees get on for Leeds United this weekend?

Leeds United defeated Stoke City 3-1 yesterday with a highly impressive performance against the Potters. But whilst the Whites first-team thrived, what about those loaned out by the club?

Here is how the Leeds United loanees got on this weekend…

Lewie Coyle – Fleetwood Town

Not an ideal opening weekend for the right-back. He deflected the cross which looped into the box for AFC Wimbledon’s winner in Joey Barton’s competitive managerial debut.

Subbed off after 67 minutes.

Pawel Cibicki – Molde

The Swedish forward wished Leeds well in their opening game of the season this weekend. He then helped Molde to a 2-2 draw with Lillestrom, getting an assist for Fredrik Aursnes’ goal.

Jay-Roy Grot – VVV Venlo

Missed the Dutch side’s final pre-season friendly win v Volendam through injury.

Tyler Denton – Peterborough United

The left-back was an unused substitute for Steve Evans’ side as they beat Bristol Rovers.

Paudie O’Connor – Blackpool

 

The Irishman helped the Seasiders to a 0-0 draw on opening weekend. Was excellent against Wycombe Wanderers’ striker Adebayo Akinfenwa and labelled ‘superb’ in the Blackpool Gazette.

Mallik Wilks – Doncaster Rovers

Perhaps the star of the weekend. The young striker scored an excellent goal as Doncaster defeated Southend United 3-2 at the weekend. Hopefully the first of many this season for the 19-year-old.

Alex Machuca – Burgos

Played in a 1-1 friendly draw with Numancia, which his side eventually lost on penalties.

Liam Kitching – Harrogate Town

Played in Harrogate’s National League opener with Sutton United, a team that not so long ago dumped Leeds out of the FA Cup.

The final score was 2-2 and Kitching felled Tom Bolarinwa to give Sutton the free-kick from which they scored their first goal.

Adrian Balboa – Badalona

No game this weekend for his Spanish side.

Hadi Sacko – Las Palmas

Made his debut for the Spanish side as they defeated Portuguese side Maritimo 1-0 in a pre-season friendly.
