Millwall loan watch: Youngster Wood makes league debut

Loan Watch

KEATON Wood made his senior professional league debut on Saturday as Dartford lost to Whitehawk in the National League South.

Centre-back Wood, 20, joined on loan last week and had a similar experience to his Millwall colleagues at Swindon, as Dartford blew a two-goal lead to lose 4-2 at home.

Dartford are in sixth place in the table, three points off the play-off places.

John Marquis scored his third goal in five games to give Northampton the lead at home to Cambridge United, but James Spencer levelled for the visitors in injury time.

Northampton still increased their lead at the top of League Two to 14 points and look certainties to gain promotion. Lee Martin was also in the Cobblers side.

Aldershot boss Barry Smith said his players showed “fighting spirit” after an 8-2 defeat to Chester last Tuesday to claim a point against Torquay at the weekend.

Alfie Pavey came close for the Shots but they couldn’t break Torquay down as they drew 0-0 at the Recreation Ground.

Also in the National League, Noah Chesmain’s Welling came from 3-0 down after 59 minutes to draw 3-3 at Southport.
