Two more Arsenal loanees joined their parent club in Monday’s draw for the FA Cup third round with wins on Sunday.
Doncaster Rovers and Shrewsbury Town both won their FA Cup second round clashes on Sunday, sending a couple more Arsenal loanees into Monday night’s draw.
Arsenal are number 2 in the round-of-64 draw, which will take place at around 7:10pm on Monday. It will be available on BT Sport and various social media platforms, and you can find the links to those platforms here.
Tyreece John-Jules made his return from injury with Rovers on Sunday, coming on for the final 15 minutes against Carlisle United. After over a month out, he’ll hope to make an impression in the coming weeks before the third round in January.
Dejan Iliev didn’t make an appearance for Shrewsbury Town against Oxford City, but he’ll be available for the next round if called upon.
Those two join Jordi Osei-Tutu (Cardiff City), Ben Sheaf (Coventry City), Daniel Ballard (Blackpool), and Harry Clarke (Oldham Athletic) in the draw. Here’s the full list of numbers to look out for:
- Arsenal – 2
- Cardiff City – 11
- Coventry City – 13
- Blackpool – 46
- Shrewsbury Town – 55
- Doncaster Rovers- 61
- Oldham Athletic – 64
For the record, if any of those teams draw Arsenal, the loan players seemingly won’t be able to feature. The FA Cup regulations state: “The Association will not give permission for players on loan or work experience to play against the lending club.”
