Loan watch: Sordell starts & scores, Fraser misses out in cup action

Ben Hoskins

While Bolton Wanderers were busy losing out to lower league opposition in demoralizing fashion, one of the club's loanees was also in action in the cup. Marvin Sordell started for Charlton Athletic away to Huddersfield Town, went the full 90 minutes, and finally scored his first goal of the season. Unfortunately for Sordell and his side, their cup run ended alongside Bolton's.

Charlton manager Chris Powell elected to bench in-form striker Simon Church in hopes of saving him for the weekend's home match against Leicester City. Instead, it was Marvin Sordell starting for the Addicks and he looked like a striker that desperately wanted his first goal. After Huddersfield Town had equalized Dale Stephens opening effort through Joel Lynch, Sordell's striker once again put the away team into the lead. It was Joe Pigott who squared a cross for Sordell at the back post with the striker finishing strongly. Huddersfield would score twice more after that with the second coming just eight minutes from time to doom Charlton to defeat.

In Scotland, Partick Thistle were in League Cup action as well, welcoming Cowdenbeath to Firhill. The home side would win 3-1 to advance to the third round of the cup. Manager Alan Archibald elected to leave Gary Fraser out of the side, making a number of changes to his team. Cowdenbeath missed a second-half penalty to leave the score tied 0-0 at full time. Four goals would come in the extra time periods with Thistle taking the lion's share of three.
