Loan watch: Barlaser opens Accrington account
Written by Dan King
While Newcastle United's youngsters were beating Notts County in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night, another of their rising stars was also on target in the same competition.
Daniel Barlaser scored his first goal for Accrington Stanley in their 4-1 victory over Macclesfield Town - and he opened his account in style.
In stoppage time, the former England under-18 international picked up the ball 25 yards from goal and ghosted into the box before drilling home.
The 21-year-old midfielder was making his fourth start for Stanley in all competitions and his seventh appearance in all.
His Newcastle team-mate Luke Charman - who also joined the Lancashire club on loan back in August - is still waiting for his debut due to injury.
Meanwhile, Josef Yarney played the full game for Morecambe as they lost 2-1 to Stoke City's under-21 side. The defender was one of only three survivors from Saturday's league defeat to Tranmere Rovers and played the full game against the Potters.
The 21-year-old, who featured for Rafa Benítez's first team in pre-season, has made 13 starts in all competitions this term.
