Loan watch: Jenkins bags for Barnet

Loan watch: Jenkins bags for Barnet
Forgotten man Ross Jenkins scored his first goal for Barnet on Saturday, but was unable to prevent the Bees from slipping to a 3-2 defeat at Accrington.

The 22 year-old midfielder scored a bicycle kick from the edge of the 18 yard-box to reduce Stanley`s lead to just one goal, but the Hertfordshire side could not find an equaliser.

Jenkins played the full 90 minutes - his third start for Edgar Davids` side.



In the npower Championship, Craig Forsyth helped Derby County to a big win over rivals Leicester City.

The Scot played the full 90 minutes as the Rams overcame Nigel Pearson`s promotion-chasing Foxes 2-1 at Pride Park.

In League One, Chris Iwelumo started up front for Oldham Athletic as they went down 1-0 to Bournemouth at Boundary Park.

The big Scot was replaced with 22 minutes left to play by Robbie Simpson.

Elsewhere in the third tier, Stephen McGinn came on for Shrewsbury Town in their 1-1 drew against Crewe Alexandrea.

McGinn replaced David McAllister after 63 minutes.

Steve Leo Beleck was also a playing substitute during Stevenage`s 4-0 demolition of Sheffield United, coming on for Marcus Haber with 15 to play.

In League Two, Britt Assombalonga played the full 90 minutes as Southend United drew 1-1 at Torquay United.

Right-back Lee Hodson, who has played just eight times since joining Brentford on-loan, has been a victim of the loan regulations, according to Bees` boss Uwe Rosler.

Brentford moved into second on Saturday with a 1-0 victory over Preston North End, but Hodson was not involved at all.

The Griffin Park outfit have six domestic loanees and only five can be in the matchday squad, meaning somebody has to miss out.

Finally, in the Blue Square South, Piero Mingoia`s Boreham Wood saw their game with Bromley postponed.
