Loan Watch: Fab Four For Darlow's Forest

Karl Darlow kept another clean sheet for Nottingham Forest as they demolished Reading at the City Ground

Karl Darlow kept another clean sheet for Nottingham Forest as they demolished Reading at the City Ground on Saturday.

A brace from Michail Antonio followed by goals from Matty Fryatt and Britt Assombalonga sealed a 4-0 win for Stuart Pearce's side as the Championship's leading scorers headed for the division's summit.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper had a quiet afternoon as the Royals failed to pose much of a threat to the Forest backline, from which fellow United loanee Jamaal Lascelles was missing again through injury.

Darlow did, however, prevent Nick Blackburn from grabbing a consolation late on, saving at the forward's feet to earn his third shutout of the season so far.

Adam Campbell, meanwhile, made a late substitute appearance for Fleetwood Town in their goalless draw at home to Chesterfield in League One.

The young forward, who joined the Cod Army on a month's loan a fortnight ago, came on as an 80th-minute substitute for David Ball but couldn't plunder a winner for his new team.

In France, Guingamp's Sylvain Marveaux played the full 90 minutes of their 1-0 defeat to Marseille in Ligue 1.

The winger, who arrived at the Stade de Roudourou on a season-long loan last month, was powerless to prevent Andre-Pierre Gignac's winner, which gave former Argentina boss Marcelo Bielsa his first win in charge of Les Phoceens.
