An update on those Blues players currently out on loan…

Blues defender Steve Seddon was on target for League Two side Stevenage on Saturday as they beat Grimsby 1-0 at the Lamex Stadium.

Seddon fired home from close-range in the 83rd minute to secure all three points for the Boro.

Speaking after the game to Stevenage’s official website, Seddon said: "I obviously want to get forward. I want to help the team going forward as well as do the so-called nasty side of football and defend. I picked it up, I tried playing it into Kurtis and it rebounded but Newts (Danny Newton) had a worldie run to be fair. I found myself in there and put it in.

"I scored a couple last year for the Under-23s at Birmingham, but that is obviously my first senior goal. I am very happy with that."

The weekend’s game was Seddon’s fourth for his loan side, which has included two wins, a loss and a draw.

It was also a successful day for two of Blues’ other loanees – Corey O’Keeffe and Luke Maxwell who are with Solihull Moors.

Moors trounced Bromley 5-0 at the Autotech Stadium, with O’Keeffe named man-of-the-match.
Maxwell was introduced as a late sub in the game in place of former Blues midfield Darren Carter

O’Keeffe has seven appearances to his name at Moors, with Maxwell on nine and two goals.

Moors’ result means they are now only four points behind league leaders Leyton Orient

North of the border, Danish striker Nicolai Brock-Madsen was on the losing St Mirren side, as the Saints suffered a 3-0 loss at Hamilton.

Brock-Madsen was introduced into the game as a 62nd minute substitute.

He has now made five appearances for his loan side but has yet to open his goalscoring account for the Scottish Premier League outfit.

In League One, goalkeeper David Stockdale kept a clean sheet in Southend United’s 1-0 home success against Fleetwood Town.

It was Stockdale’s first victory with Chris Powell’s side, having lost in his two previous outings between the sticks for the Roots Hall club.

Over in France, Cheikh Ndoye completed the full game for Angers on Saturday as they were held to 0-0 home draw by Toulouse in Ligue One.

Ndoye has turned out five times for Angers, with two wins, two defeats and a draw to his name.

Blues youngsters Adam Siviter and Ben McLean made a winning start following their loan moves to AFC Totton on Friday.

Totton ran out comfortable 5-2 winners against Fleet Town in their Southern League Division One South away fixture.

Ronan Hale was on the losing side with Derry City on Saturday as they suffered a 1-0 home loss to Shamrock Rovers.

The striker has scored eight times in his 29 appearances for Derry.

Midfielder Greg Stewart had an afternoon to remember with Kilmarnock after they beat current league leaders Celtic at Rugby Park.

Former Blues winger Chris Burke scored one of the goals in the surprising 2-1 success.

To date, Stewart has made three appearances for Killie, winning two of them and losing one.

Jonathan Grounds made his sixth appearance for Championship side Bolton at the weekend.

Despite being reduced to 10-men after just 32 minutes, Wanderers held on for a 0-0 draw.

Defender Dom Bernard made his 11th appearance for Aldershot on Saturday as they beat Dover 2-0 at the EEB Stadium.

Full-back Cheick Keita is on a season-long loan with Belgian side Kas Eupen.

Keita has played six times for the Belgian Division one Club but has not appeared since 1 September when they beat St Liege 2-1 at home.

Finally, young defender Kieron Dawes has finished his loan spell with Sutton Coldfield Town, having made nine appearances for the Southern League side.
