Leeds United loan watch as duo suffer disappointing result on early Championship return

Leeds United's loan stars endured a mixed bag of results this weekend as Championship football flickered back into view, with one match taking place ahead of next weekend's full return following the World Cup break. It did, however, feature two Leeds loanees, with another pair playing further down the EFL.

Here is a look at how each of them got on.

Charlie Cresswell and Jamie Shackleton - Millwall

Charlie Cresswell and Jamie Shackleton both featured as Millwall fell to a disappointing 3-0 defeat against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. Cresswell played all 90 minutes as Garry Rowett's side conceded two second-half goals in a matter of five minutes, while Shackleton replaced George Saville in the 66th minute but was unable to make his mark on the game.

Lewis Bate - Oxford United

Lewis Bate made his 12th League One appearance for Oxford United as Ethan Hamilton's late equaliser denied the U's an away win at Accrington Stanley. Bate was replaced by Karl Robinson in the 77th minute whilst Oxford still led at the Wham Stadium.
