Bristol City drew 1-1 at home to Swansea City on Saturday lunchtime. The Robins led 1-0 at half-time through Tommy Conway, only for the Swans to level things up 15 minutes from time when midfielder Olivier Ntcham found the net.
Nigel Pearson’s side are back in action on Tuesday night against Sheffield United at Ashton Gate. In the meantime, here is a look at some of the latest news from around the Championship...
Reading loan out attacker
Reading attacker Jahmari Clarke has joined Woking on a one-month loan deal. The 19-year-old has been given the green light to head out the exit door to get some experience under his belt. He made 12 appearances in all competitions for the Royals last season but his game time has since dried up under Paul Ince.
Middlesbrough offload defender
Middlesbrough have also decided to send a player to Woking to get some game time. Bryant Bilongo has also linked up with the National League South outfit for the next four weeks. He is yet to make a league appearance for Boro but has featured for them in the Carabao Cup in the past.
Blackpool boss on transfer speculation
Blackpool boss Michael Appleton doesn’t think Jerry Yates will be affected by transfer speculation. The attacker has been linked with a few clubs including West Brom and Watford recently after his impressive start to the season. His manager has said, as per a report by Lancashire Live: “I don’t see Jerry being the deep-thinking type or worrying too much about things, he’s so larger than life and so jovial when he’s around people. I don’t see him going away and thinking too hard and worrying too much about situations, I think he just loves playing football.
“I think that’s how he plays the game, he just loves it and you can see how much it means to him when he scores, when the team win, when the other players in the team score he’s always the loudest and the first to the man who scored the goal.”
