It was a frustrating start to the weekend for Arsenal’s loanees across Europe.
Kaylen Hinds started as a centre forward in a two-striker formation, but could not help his side avoid defeat at home against Mansfield Town. The teenager was hauled off midway through the second-half.
Chuba Akpom came on as a second-half substitute once again for Brighton, but this time they suffered defeat as their five-match winning run was ended.
The striker only played seven minutes and it’s becoming a recurring theme that, in an attempt to keep everyone content, Akpom plays sparingly. It’s frustrating to see and makes you wonder if he’ll ever get an extended opportunity – after all, they secured automatic promotion last weekend and still have two fixtures remaining for him to showcase his ability.
Marc Bola was not involved as Notts County lost 2-1 away against ten-man Luton Town. It is unconfirmed as to whether the fullback was dropped, injured or rested for this fixture.
