Vital Leeds looks at how the loan players did in the games over the weekend.
Patrick Kisnorbo – Ipswich Town (loan ends January 29th)
After making his debut in the FA Cup defeat at Aston Villa, Kisnorbo has been an unused substitute in their last four games.
Kisnorbo remained on the bench on Saturday as Ipswich thumped Middlesbrough 4-0 at Portman Road.
Danny Pugh – Sheffield Wednesday (Rest of season)
Pugh was at the centre of the action in Wednesday`s 3-1 home win over Brighton. Wednesday were already ahead when Ashley Barnes was sent off for the visitors just past the half hour, for a foul near the corner flag.
Pugh took the resulting free kick, which eluded everyone and found its way into the net. Pugh claimed an assist for their third goal when Michael Antonio bundled in his corner. Brighton were then incensed when Pugh lunged in at Inigo Calderon. The incident saw tensions boil over on the touchline with Mr ‘Vile Animal` himself, Dave Jones along with Charlie Oatway from Brighton sent to the stands. Pugh was eventually shown a yellow card.
Pugh has now made 2 appearances since arriving at Hillsborough.
Zac Thompson – Bury (Rest of season)
Thompson played 90 minutes for Bury as they upset the formbook, beating promotion chasing Doncaster Rovers 2-0 at Gigg Lane.
