Newcastle Loan Report: Only Sammy Ameobi Advances To Next Round Of League Cup As Cardiff Beat Wimbledon

Adam Armstrong would have came in handy as Coventry crashed out to Rochdale on penalties.

While Newcastle's first-team squad were getting prepared for their weekend trip to Swansea, the loanees were all lined up at various grounds around the country as they attempted to earn a potential clash with the Magpies in the League Cup second round. On his Coventry City debut, Adam Armstrong bagged a magnificent brace, played the entire match and fired the Sky Blues to a 2-0 win over recently-relegated Wigan Athletic. Tony Mowbray would have been hoping to build on their positive start as his side faced Rochdale at home. A senior debut arrived for Freddie Woodman on Saturday as the 18-year-old stopper lined up in goal for Crawley Town as they drew 1-1 with Oxford United. Woodman would have been eager to impress once more as the Reds lined up against League One's Peterborough away from home. Shane Ferguson only made his Millwall debut off the bench against Shrewsbury Town and helped the Lions see out the game 2-1. The Northern Ireland international would have been looking for his first start as Millwall hosted Barnet at The Den. Sammy Ameobi could also only make his Cardiff City debut off the bench as the Bluebirds drew their Championship opener with Fulham 1-1. The tricky winger will want to be involved in as much action as possible and would have hoped to start as Cardiff faced Wimbledon at home. Here, you through how each of the four Newcastle United loanees got on during their League Cup fixtures...
