190225 Loan Report

Ellis Chapman and Jordan Adebayo-Smith started for their loanee sides at the weekend, with Adebayo-Smith scoring in Grantham Town's 2-0 victory over Matlock.

Adebayo-Smith scored his third in as many games, following his brace on debut against South Shields previously. 

Grantham, who were hosts to Matlock on Saturday, went in goalless at the break, but an inspired second-half performance saw the three points remain in Lincolnshire.

Chris Dawson opened the scoring, with Adebayo-Smith adding a second.


Ellis Chapman made his third appearance for Chesterfield at the weekend, and despite consecutive victories and clean sheets, he couldn't make it a hat-trick of successes, as the Spireites fell to a 1-0 defeat to Harrogate Town.

The 18-year-old started in a left-wing back role again, and caused problems for the visitors down the flank, but Chesterfield couldn't find an equaliser following Harrogate's eighth-minute opener.

Chapman is back in action on Tuesday night, as the Spireites make the trip to Barnet in the National League.

Meanwhile, Adebayo-Smith and Tim Akinola will be away from home on Saturday, as they travel to Hednesford Town and Carlton Town respectively.
